Adam Beyer uses Swedish techno artists as the centerpiece and rounding out the mix with other staples. The mix is constructed in a way that crawls into your brain like few other releases this year.
The opening track, with rhythmic clicks becoming Tyrone Palmer's call to arms sets the tone for this dark disc. Every selection is spot on and the set is laced with more eerie sounds than a haunted house.
By the time you get to Adam's own "Snuff & Noise" at 7 on the dial, you are grateful for a bit of nocturnal reprieve. However - this is merely a brief breather. Three tracks later and a tribal drum reclaims the menace of from earlier in the set.
The piece de resistance for me, is easily the Jesper Dahalbeck / Adam Beyer collaboration 'Redemption' towards the end of the mix. Not only is this compilation a sound release but its shelf-life is pretty much guaranteed.
Sampling the best of the genre and mixing it better than most could imagine, Adam Beyer demonstrates what he brings to techno and, more importantly, what he brings to the dance floor.
