Excerpts from Danny Howells GU#27 Miami Disc 1
Danny Howells - GU #27 Miami
Though Danny Howells has been releasind DJ Mix compilations for several years, this was his first release on the flag ship
series of the Global Underground label.
I've really enjoyed Disc One. It starts out with a kind of laid back
vibe that does not insist that one move, but allows one to sit back and just enjoy the tunes. Even when things start to
kick into gear with the Salt City Orchestra mix Sneaker Pimps' "Post Modern Sleaze", the groove is really more funky w/
a repeating electric bass line that meshes well with the vocals from Keli Ali.
Funky really describes the entire
disc. The excellent track from Silocone Soul "Les Noctournes" pops into the mix, and in my opinion fits much more nicely on
this disc than on Dave Seaman's contribution to the second volume of "The Therapy Sessions".
Overall, I've found myself
very satisfied with the first disc. If I were at a funky bar with some friends, this would be an excellent disc to have playing
in the background. It can grab and hold the listener's interest without dominating the scene.
