TranceMixed is a DJ-mixed journey over two CDs that work across the board from
female vocal trance to the harder stuff, with some cheesy house asides on the
Standout tracks on the first CD include a version of The Eurythmics’ classic "Sweet Dreams" by Riffs & Rays with Soraya on vocals and "Twister" by Sam Sharp, which turns up the heat before Airwave evokes memories of Orbital (RIP) on "I Want to Believe."
The second CD is harder overall, resembling a frantic pseudo-New Order trance session. "Automanual" by Marco V, a personal favorite, again evokes Orbital-like sounds.
That said, the question has to be asked again: How long can compilation albums like this keep being produced? Like their ardent fans, they are often rather saturated, with tranceMixed being another good yet uninspiring compilation.
TranceMixed: Anthems Volume 1 is currently available.
