Double CD «DJ Sonique - Club Mix»|
(July 2001) - Cat. No. Virgin VTDCDX 383
Chart-topping DJ/chanteuse, Sonique has a slight advantage over her contemporaries when it comes to creating a mix album - she can sing.
Thankfully, no-one else on the big-name DJ circuit has yet taken up this challenge as Sonique has on her live club mix Serious Sounds.
Imagine the potential horror of Brandon Block or Sasha attempting to croon over their sets and suddenly you can appreciate
Sonique's talents all the more. On this compilation though, she keeps the vocal interludes to a respectful minimum, preferring
instead to let the music and her mixing do the talking. Starting out with Silicone Soul's impressive "Right On Right On",
disk 1 sees the female phenomenon blend together everything from silky, chugging house tracks such as Colours'
"The Guitar Track" and Xtra Large's "Mind Made Up" to breakbeat feasts such as the Plump DJ's
"Scram" and Beber and Tamra's "Travelling On". The second disk is set aside for the more aggressive side of
things, with progressive pumpers like DJ Tiësto's "Flight 643" and Tomba Vira's "The Sound Of: Oh Yeah".
Throwing in a special live performance of the Energy 52 "Café Del Mar / Feel So Good" bootleg for good measure, Sonique
has made a pretty good job of an album that caters for most musical tastes.
