The first mix (titled 'Outdoor') majors on a minimal, instrumental sound, beginning slowly by building impressively throughout - a real journey. Early on Tom Mangan's 'Chutney', reinterpreted by Size 9, whizzes from left to right in the stereo picture, a great effect on headphones. This blends into the deeper than deep 'Acapulco' from The Ambush, a more tribal offering underpinned by deep keyboard sounds. Darren Tate's 'Let The Light Shine In' is outstanding hands in the air action, as is Midway's 'Anca'. Tiesto himself turns in an excellent remix of DJ Cor Fijneman's 'Venus' alongside his own 'Nyana', whilst Solar Factor's sharp trancer 'Urban Shakedown' raises the roof towards the close.
After such an outstanding first disc the second is more of a vocal offering, despite its 'Indoor' title. Immediate stand-outs are Holden & Thompson's 'Nothing', Tiesto and Filterheadz taking Tina Arena places she's never been before thanks to the excellent Roc Project, and my pick of the mix which is Andain's 'Beautiful Things', a wierd cut up vocal effect which proves to be rather haunting.
Well if you've read this and are still not sure, I would strongly urge you to hear this disc. Tiesto's mixing keeps the music alive and interesting, with a good variety of top quality trance music on display. Accept no imitations!
