Progressive house kingpin John Digweed drops the second installment in his 'Transitions' compilation series next month. 'Transitions 2' includes cuts by Robert Babicz, Guy Gerber, David K and Tobi Neumann.
John Digweed is one of the giants of the progressive house scene who's been championing the sound since the mid-nineties. But earlier this year on his 'Transitions' compilation he revealed a new agenda of ravey German electrohouse and lush proggy techno. The tracklist for the follow-up 'Transitions 2' has now been revealed and once again it shows Digweed moving another step away from the sound that catapulted him into the spotlight.
Like the first installment 'Transitions 2' is a mixture of tech house, electrohouse and techno, but unlike volume one, which heavily sampled artists from German electrohouse label Great Stuff/Kling Klong, this time Digweed's looked to Cocoon artists such as David K, Tobi Neumann and Guy Gerber - he's also on Digweed's Bedrock label. There's also cuts by relative newcomers Abyss [Buzzin' Fly], Felix Houzer [Out of Orbit] and Dirk Technic [10 Kilo] as well as techno old hand Robert Babicz. The Joakim remix of the recently re-issued Antena classic 'Camino Del Sol' and an older Jackmate track should keep the Digweed faithful guessing.
