Jeffrey Sutorius - Vinyl Mix (001) (2018)
As you all know, I've been through a lot the last couple of months, and the journey is hopefully coming to an end next week (Friday to be precise). I have missed out on a lot of things, and one of these things was apparently big news! How did I bloody miss that? Dash Berlin's front man quitting the group, and started his own solo career. Must have been extremely serious to leave such a succesful group, but I'm not here to talk about that. I'm not a gossip website.
I'm here to talk about a mix I found earlier today. His first mix as Jeffrey Sutorius (still need to get used to the name), which is a vinyl only mix. And you know me, I do love vinyl. It's just so much nicer, and really not easy to learn (how to mix). Don't know why he decided to go back in time, but it's a good call. No EDM stuff, pure Trance music from the golden era. And boy, he has selected some serious dancefloor anthems, some true bangers!
I love these anthems. You can't go wrong with them. And yes, we might have heard them too many times, but still now I can't point anything out which might be wrong with these records. Time for the tracklist....
01. Madonna - What It Feels Like For A Girl (Above & Beyond 12" Club Mix)
02. Cygnus X - Superstring (Rank1 Remix)
03. Out Of Grace - Anglia (2000 Remix)
04. Svenson & Gielen - Twisted (Original Mix)
05. DJ Tiësto - Flight 643
06. DJ Albert vs Precision - Say Yes (Silent Mix)
07. Paul van Dyk - For An Angel (PvD E-Werk Club Mix)
08. Art Of Trance - Madagascar (Ferry Corsten Remix)
09. Dash Berlin - Never Cry Again (Jorn van Deynhoven Mix)
10. Dash Berlin - Earth Hour
11. Jam & Spoon - Follow Me!
The tracklist is a thing of beauty. It really is! So many Trance anthems, granted lifetime membership of the top 10 favourite lists of millions around the world. You can not go wrong with Tiesto's early work, Paul van Dyk, Out Of Grace, or Cygnus X. True pioneers they were.
The quality of these anthems can not be copied. It's a style which has changed our lives forever, but music producers have sadly moved away from the early 00s sound, which to me was and still is the greatest and finest sound ever created. A good call for Jeffrey for his first mix.
It does sadly contain a few annoying mistakes. Not small ones to ignore, but proper ones. And I would not have expected that from him, with his rich history as a well known DJ. Maybe he needs some more lessons behind the decks. Vinyl can be tricky. But the transition bit, that he needs to improve. From 'Flight 643' to 'Say Yes' was just painful to hear. And it happens more often.
Not all throughout the mix it's bad. Don't get me wrong, mayube you like it. But it kind of ruins the quality of the records and the mix itself. All in all a good mix, but not really one you would like to listen to again. He's made better mixes. Maybe his second instalment is an improvement?
Best record? 'Superstring'. Sensation baby.
