    a dj/producer who has a cult following the world-over, renowned for his unique productions and mystical persona, offers the balance series the most innovative selection of music to date. james' vast taste for left of centre material matched with dance-floor sensibilities has resulted in an eclectic mix of house, techno, melodies, and ambient moments, all fused with a progressive attitude, which will definitely capture the attention and imagination of clubbers and music connoisseurs alike.

    I think it just means that he produces and enjoys playing tracks that are more risky or a bit more experimental sounding. A lot of jocks go with what works and gets the crowd going quickly instead of building up a set. I am not saying that James Holden is that type of a dj but he is a very good programmer and often (IMO) makes various links between genres with his track selection. This I enjoy a lot.

    1st CD review : definitely more Border Community than Silver Planet - nowhere really to be found is the type of sound we've come to expect of Holden from his Essential Mix or noteworthy tracks in that same vein. Electro tinged, idm influenced stuff here. Grooves are deeper - somewhat unexpected. Takes a while to get where it does. More late night headphones listening than full on. It appears as though Holden is pushing his sound (perhaps progressive in general) in directions different than what people would normally expect - not sure yet if that's a good thing or a bad thing, but sure is different.

    Conclusion after having listened to the second disc : I think this will occupy the same controversial space that Airdrawndagger did when it came out. Maybe not to the same extent, as there probably aren't as many people waiting to start criticizing Holden as Sasha. But this is definitely a 'leftfield' release that will throw many for a loop and take some time for the effects to settle in.

    almost done listening to disc1...
    there is definitely an electro feel, but not in a cheesy electro way (i hate most electro)

    deep is right - the grooves are fucking DEEP! and the breakdowns have all been pretty sweet too.
    i'm really liking this release so far.

    look forward to listening to this new cd comp.
  20. I'm not told on all the songs on the first disc. I like it for the most part but the FortDax just doesn't sit right with me. Couple of other tracks that I'm not quite with. Maybe it will grow on me.

    second listen :

    I'm enjoying CD1. This is definitely something that grows on you - first mix/cd in a long time that I've enjoyed giving repeat listens to in order better appreciate what's going on.

    The pairing of the Fortdax tune with Chable's vocal pass of "You Are Sleeping" is fucking awesome.
