With the latest banging release from clubMixed, this is the first in a new series celebrating the ups: upfront and uplifting anthems that you may well hear on dance floors around the world, or simply at a local house party in town.

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 way.

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.

Grade: B
