Global Underground 23: James Lavelle In Barcelonaby GLOBAL UNDERGROUND

CDs & Vinyl > Special Features > Ministry of Sound
Product Description
Beats aficionado and all-round scenester, James Lavelle, has always had a way with a beat. Here, we get to see what the Mo Wax head honcho can turn up with a set of turntables and a wide choice of tunes for Global Underground 23 in Barcelona. On CD 1 he begins, appropriately enough, with DJ Shadow's brooding "Mongrel Meets It's Maker" before heading steadily towards nu skool breaks territory via cuts like Leftield's "Dusted" (featuring Roots Manuva), Thomas Bangalter's "Night Beats", building an infectious set that features Layo and Bushwacka's "Let The Good Times Roll", Sasha's "Fundamental", Evil9's "Crooked" and the excellent Unkle remix of Ian Brown's 'Fear'. CD 2 initially starts with a loose, four-four sound courtesy of Pitch Black's "Underground Sound" but soon brings back the pin-sharp syncopation with artists like Meat Katie, Rennie Pilgrem and Soul Of Man. Lavelle finally gets his tech house tendencies out halfway through this second mix, stringing together bubbling tracks from Peace Division, Duncan Gray, Lee Burridge, FC Kahuna and Halo before coming to a simmer with "There Goes The Fear" by Doves. Competent enough, but hardly the cutting edge stuff you might expect from a man perpetually hyped as a luminary. --Paul Sullivan
