Each year Desolat has prepared a special compilation, having a different color. And we had red (the review here) and also blue (find it here). Now it`s time for purple.
The first thing that comes to mind is "wait, where is Loco Dice & Livio & Roby?". I was used with their presence and I was disappointed when I saw the tracklist. I mean I do value good music, as this definitely is, but still expected the big names to join in and bring their contributions. Getting past that, you can expect both quality deep and tech-house here, with Ontra starting it pretty slow but good for relaxing or after-hours. Danny Ocean brings on the pure house in quite a mad track, while Funk E continues this style, with irresistible vibes and good rhythm. For the ones used more to the tech part of house, Filsonik and Reboot deliver two solid tracks, the first one being more energic and danceable, the second being more calm but having a wonderful bass-line. Two legends join forces and deliver a very nice deep-house song, called Mishima (Yukio?), while Anthea teams up with rising star Guti in order to create the last track of the compilation, the best one from my point of view. To sum up, very nice sounds for Christmas, waiting to hear them on the dancefloor.
