Various: Triple R—Friends
It’s rare to find a mix CD with much complexity. But this one manages to combine danceable grooves with tracks worthy of headphone listening. A lot of the mix is hypnotic, minimal techno, but there’s also some house, and what could even be considered a pop track or two. It all flows together smoothly, with only an occasional vinyl artifact. The climax is the Superpitcher remix of Dntel’s “This is the Dream.” The eerie vocals make for perfect late-night listening. Overall, it’s a great mix for fans of deep beats.
