As I've said before, Fabric releases are some of my favorites. The radio mixes, half-hour blasts of compressed mixing, are like mini-Back to Mine albums. This is a goooood thing.
I don't know who Ellen Allen is, but it doesn't matter so much, because it's the product that counts in the end.
The mix begins with Like a Child (Carl Craig remix)
. A solid intro track with its slow lead-in combined with the catchy remixed version of the track, which leads us into Falling Up
, my favorite of the mix. Falling Up combines a lot of my favorite elements in a track; synths, deep, pulsating bass, pans that don't make me dizzy, and most importantly, energy.Lotus
picks up very, very nicely, maintaining the energy and expanding on it. These two tracks compliment each other so well, and are so well mixed, that it's very difficult to tell where one starts and the other ends, if one even catches on to the occurence. When It Was Day We Made It Night
and Dragon soup (lod remix)
don't quite match the first third of the mix…
