I swear, I’m the only person I know who’s excited about a new compilation by Sandra Collins. It’s not that no one else thinks it’s good. It’s because pretty much everyone I know in Hollywoodland aren’t into progressive house.
It’s a Perfecto release. That’s Paul Oakenfold, for those of you who are in the know. In fact, wait a second, you don’t even have to be in the know to have heard of Paul Oakenfold. He’s way the hell up there with Tiesto, Paul van Dyk, John Digweed and BT as the world’s most recognizable DJ/Producers. Common. Popular. Commercial. Whatever.
Anyway, the last Perfecto release by Miz Collins was a muscular, durable set of progressive tracks that I still listen to today. She’s rude and pushy and tough as nails, but man, she puts together a good set. Wish I could post something that encapsulates the set, but I can’t. In fact, I rarely post about this kind of music because there’s simply no point in providing an mp3 for you. The world of electronic house music isn’t so much about the individual tracks as it is about the overall mood of the DJ and the journey on which he or she takes you. So just buy the cd. Listen and listen well.
