Dimitri from Paris does it again with this one.
If you haven't yet discovered Dimitri, then I would describe his music as Disco infused soulful house, the kind of music that promises to be uplifting, fresh and a joy to listen to.
Disc 1 of this 3 CD pack is the more energitic mix, the kind of CD you'd put on at a party to get everyone going. Standout tracks include the brilliant 'Enjoy it now' by Tortured Soul, 'Tonight' by DJ Genesis, Pete Hellers classic 'Big Love' and 'I need you' by the disco legend Sylvester. Out of the 14 tracks on this CD you'll struggle to find a bad one to be honest.
Disc 2 slows it down a bit, with a more chilled out and soulful feel to it. Again all 14 tracks are great, but the pick of the bunch for me is the Tom Moulton mix of Grace Jones' 'La Vie En Rose'.
Disc 3 is a bonus disc and features a selection of full length tracks from the previous 2 CD's, all of which Dimitri's own remixes and edits.
Overall this a great compliation from Dimitri, though probably not his best (which in my opinion would be 'Return to the Playboy Mansion'). But with Dimitri, his best is outstanding and anything else is still very very good.
If you like the soulful house scene and enjoy mixes by the likes of Kenny Dope and Louis Vega then this CD and all other Dimitri releases are well worth a try.
