US2K Review: This is the second part of Dj Mood' s excellent minimal techno mix.This mix begins with some chimes (very old skool and much appreciated, Colin Dale of Kiss FM would have cheered at their sound) and both click, cymbal and ethnic or Latin drum percussion which is used to flow the listener for 30 seconds until a synth sequence is reached which sounds almost laughter.

The laughter is soon joined by a sub bass line, but having done its job to add interest and announce changes to the mix, the synth laughter exits the mix arrangement allowing the percussion to take the lead, enhanced by an accenting snare/clap on every beat. Although the roots of the mix are house music which has potential to be monotonous, the percussion is more danceable than you would expect, the underlying drum groove is like a four on the floor with a little bit of a swinging syncopation. This theme is kept interesting up to the one minute 14 second position with subtle drum or percussion changes, possible even human drum hits at times, the periodic removal and return of the sub bass line and occasional sound effects or vox. After this point the conclusion of the mix is announced with what sounds like a synthetic orchestral crash or stab.

The ending of this mix is of course a coda based on the percussion from earlier with a few extra percussive fills and snare hits. The final end to the mix begins with the departure of the sub bass line, and all percussion except the bass drum and snares. This pattern is faded out to silence at the one minute forty two second position.

My evaluation of the mix is that is it scores the following: musical structure =8, Variation of mix=7, Catchiness=8 (percussion is addictive), Use of vox, sound effects, drum fills to announce changes or maintain mix interest=9, Mastering such as reverb, delay, equalisation, stereo-positioning =9, general musical skill demonstrated=8. My overall final score is 8 out of 10. This is a good listen for minimal techno fans but the next parts get better so stay tuned...

US2K Review: I cannot really review or score this submission as it sounds more like a dj promo mix instead of a single composition. Normally even a dj mix I can score or review but each track seems a little too short although those teaser sections sound very well produced with catchy hook melodies. I am unsure why Dj Mox submitted this promo to me, but would love to hear the full length tracks.

Bass Mom & Dj CrusadeReview: I love classical music and this track takes me away! This is this reviewers first time reviewing for this artist and I like what I hear so far with this track! it has a sweet sound yet climaxes to a powerful theatrical sound and the use of the obo and the cello and the saxaphone and the violin work very well with one another as does the piano which adds variation to this mix. It is a bit lengthy but still leaves me with a feeling that I have just left the hall where the orchestra was playing! I give this track a solid 10 for creativity, and overall production as this could make for a very good film score like the one I wrote!!! Well done!

US2K Review: A review will follwo shortly but in the mean-time my provisional score of 8 out of 10. The composition demonstrates top musical ability, pity about the minor distortion.

US2K Review: This begins immediately with a funky bass drum, syncopated snare drum pattern with variations and fills. The groove a little like the one used for the 'Bucketheads' classic funky dance record, 'The Bomb' so the feet already wants to dance.

Four seconds later there are a few rising in loudness atmospheric reverb treated orchestral stabs and crashes that seem to be accented the end of each set of 4 to 8 bars whilst allowing a funky lead brass line and organ to be faded and filter swept in discretely. The fade eventually results in all of the new arrangement being are at "full strength" around the thirty three seconds position. The musical result is already seriously `funky house` hook (main hook) and groove, but further interest is yet added with the use of some subtle vocal shouts, introduced by a jazz cymbal which remains afterwards to add energy to strategic bar beats. This theme continues to the fifty six seconds position with occasional louder shouts, then to give the listener (dancer maybe) a surprise, half the hook is temporarily repeated a few times. This continues until a higher in velocity crash introduces itself and a female chanting vocal to add more excitement to the mix, giving it a carnival or street part feel.

The new theme continues to the two minute two second position at which point a delay treated organ plays a downward ending note scale (one similar to when someone loses in a game show) is used to introduce a bridge or middle eight section for the mix.

The bridge begins with a few further notes from that instrument before a few the drum pattern solos with what is like a watery brook with frogs ( or it could be an illusion as a result of other atmospheric sounds delay trails merging to ambience). In any case a few stabs of the organ from earlier and the main hook is faded/swept in again and vox is steadily added, the female chanting last.

Variation to the sound is ensured by changing the vox heard as the mix progresses to the conclusion. The mentioned conclusion is introduced by the same "game show loser" scale, and consists of simply the drum pattern and numerous vocals, and occasional brass or organ stabs. This mix is of course part of a dj set and so was intended to fade to the next in the set, but instead to confine the production to single mix boundaries is faded out, eventually to silence at the four minute five seconds position.

So my final score consists of the following factors, variation=8, catchiness=9, arrangement=8, mastering, delay etc. and instrument positioning=9, Use of drum rolls or sound effects to announce changes=10, musical structure=8, general musical skill=9. My overall score for a very good funky house record is 9 out of 10.

US2K Review: This mix begins with a very deep sub-bass line and a four on the floor bass drum with a filter applied so that only the lower frequencies are heard. Gradually the filter is opened allowing higher frequencies to be heard. An abstract but rhythmic synth sound leads and drive the mix in a kind of catchy but melody less way and wooden stick percussion added. The mix is already possibly danceable or at least foot-tapping by the one minute eleven seconds position.

To prevent the mix getting monotonous which this style is always at risk of becoming, around the one minute twenty two seconds positions both the bass line and lead instrument change instantly after the sound of an eerie cackling with all high frequencies cut, and there is a subtle snare or hi-hat on every four to eight beats. The lead is more melodic, a metallic sounding old skool warehouse patch or sample. This lead continues, accompanied by the mentioned bass and cackling up to the one minute thirty eight second position. At this point a bridge is formed by a change in musical arrangement. The bass drum is substituted for a clap snare on every second beat in the bar, and some other more melodic percussion, whilst the cackling gets louder. It could be that higher frequencies are allowed through the filter settings at times too but it is not always possible to tell from an audio recording. The more interesting thing is the clap is readying the listener for the return of the four on the floor because it is evident it is an accent clap.

As is pleasantly anticipated at the one minute fifty three position the bass drum does join the clap to form the popular accented four on the floor, after one last cackle which seems to act cleverly as an orchestral crash to announce the change this time. The result is the mix becomes even more danceable and enters the realm of old skool. The melodic percussion without the cackle is clearer and now serves the role well of answering the warehouse music style lead.

At the two minute twenty four position the conclusion to the mix begins with departure of both bass drum and clap, interestingly enough this change sounds ok although no sound or cymbal is used to announce it. After which point the reduced arrangement of simply bass, lead and melodic percussion continue with a subtle human sounding snare pattern up to the two minute thirty nine seconds position at which point the arrangement changes abruptly again to simply percussion and clap, and again at the two minute fifty four position where the clap is substituted for a human sounding wooden drum pattern an electronic bleep where there was once a subtle snare, eventually ending at the three minute five seconds position.

To evaluate the mix as a whole it is very skilfully put together and a generally very interesting listen. There is the possible issues from an academic or musically technical judgement with respect to abrupt changes but this is fundamentally minimal techno and one of my favourite records of the pioneering days of dance music 'Zombie Nation' has such abrupt changes near the beginning where parts of the drum arrangement enter without indication by cymbal, but it does not spoil the enjoyment of the record and perhaps such technicalities are open a debate.

So my final score consists of the following factors, variation=10, catchiness=9, arrangement=10, mastering, delay etc. and instrument positioning=10, Use of drum rolls or sound effects to announce changes=9, musical structure=10, general musical skill=10. The overall result is 9 out of 10 for a very sophisticated and fun minimal techno production, that flows well.
