the NYC DJ rapidly becoming well known for his non-stop house
mixes, has brought forth yet another mix CD. This time he attempts
to venture into the genre of trance music, only he is slightly
misguided in his use of the term "trance." Trance
Sessions is more hard house than trance, so listeners beware.
Trance Sessions offers an exciting mix of high energy music,
residing mostly in the upper 130 bpm range. DeVito executes the
mixes with more precision than seen on his previous albums, paying
more attention to the breaks in the preceding track and the keys
of the tracks being mixed. He does, however, tend to leave the
bass levels a little too high when both tracks are present, which
leads to slight distortion on the bottom end.
made it easy for the casual dance music listener to get a taste
the club scene with his mix albums, and he continues this trend
with Trance Sessions, adding a bit of variety to his repertoire.
But for die-hard eletronic music fans, Trance Sessions
offers nothing stellar.
