The problem with Sandra Collins in my opinion is that she plays too much trance - too many tunes that bang you over the head - and then slow down and get all pretty and silly in a cheesy kind of way - and then speed up and make you feel like banging your head again. Regardless, I've heard my share of trance and progressive trance and I definitely prefer progressive trance over the standard trance fare. I won't go into each song individually and describe each of them, because I don't really feel like it, but trust me the songs are good, nice track selection. Bubblebath - Martin Accorsi Remix , 4. Comes complete with all the original included artwork. Because the progressive style incorporates more emotion, more feeling.
I was hoping for something along the same lines as Cream, and a little bit new. And the tracks that Sandra selects do not make me feel like dancing at all. Humate remix Losing My Religion - Humate Remix, 6. Reflections - Flash Brothers Remix , 5. In fact, both sets are somewhat mellow in a sense. Planet Funk remix All in My Head - Planet Funk Remix, 10. The next track should have been instrumental.
Just Can't Get Enough - Infusion Remix , 10. Cant wait to see her live again. Sandra does have a penchant on these sets for including a soulful section all of a sudden and then cranking up the beat right after. Not that I have a whole lot mind you, haha. Humate remix Me and You - Humate Mix, 5. And some other things sprinkled in. Much better than her Tranceport and Cream offerings.
Once again Sandra has proven why is she is who she is. I've been listening to trance ever since 99'. Next up, For all Perfecto Flouro fans, track 7 by Avedon reminds me of the Goa trance Oakey days. Wonderful choice of songs for the mix as well. Not me, I love fusion of styles, and Sandra's two sets span enough styles and tempos to make this a thoroughly enjoyable listen from the first song on the first disc to the last song of the second. Maybe the blending of house with trance turns off the pure trance heads.
This is the dark style of progressive trance. Sandra spins a different kind of trance than most dj's,and you have to let the cd play all the way through without skipping a track to really enjoy the mix. . Sandra likes to build up a cd, and this mix is not going to dissapoint. Beber and Tamra up next, not a great finisher, but hey, one more cd to go.
We guarantee your total satisfaction with every single order. You have to be in the right mood,but when you are this cd will really space you out and make you feel out of this world. For the time she took on this it is a well deserved return. The first disc starts off slow and with lots of feeling, like the start of a journey kind of. By the third song the tempo picks up noticeably along with the beat, but not so much you feel like frantically dancing your butt off. Maybe not mellow, it just seems like their's a purpose to the music, it's not all about increasing the excitement song after song to reach some climax and then slowly coming back down; it's a smooth danceable ride all the way through.
Well, okay, the last track on the first set is kind of slow for my tastes, but it's the closer so I can forgive that. The Greek's remix No Other Man - the Greek; S Remix, 9. Attention Deficit's In Focus Dub Cold Comfort - Attention Deficit's in Focus Dub mix, 12. Keep your eye on this lady shes doing big things. The curve track is a little bit like coming down a highway in a driving thunderstorm and then you have a patch of clear sunny sky. The - Attention Deficit's Freewill Remix, Attention Deficit's Freewill remix Great Escape.
Progressive trance and progressive house sound so similar it's hard to distinguish exactly what is progressive trance versus progressive house. Heard it before alot, but I love this track. Slacker remix In This World - Slacker's Rain Before Carnival Remix, 6. This girl has incredible mixing skills,showing no errors and taking you into dreamland! A great one to add to dance music fans collection. There's enough danceable, soulful, spacey, trancey, housey, and other -ey elements to keep me happy.
I wish she would have put in the dub without the lyrics. This is a great 2-cd set but is not for beginners. Atmos remix Phutures - Atmos Remix, 3. Both artwork and disc will be in very good condition. Infusion remix Cliff - Infusion Remix, 4. As I listen on, the Planet Funk remix of Kosheen is a bit too long, but I liked it.
