Excerpts from James Zabiela - Utilities (CD1)
James Zabiela - Utilities
This was the third installment by James Zabiela for the Renaissance label. This dual disc offering has something of a gimmick – the first disc was mixed using only software, while the second disc was mixed using CDJs.

The first disc, appropriately named “computed” was mixed predominantly with Ableton software. Most of this is a “robot” infused tech house and breaks mix, but slides into a groovy smooth house vibe for the last 20 – 30 minutes. There are tones of overlays and vocals about robots – robots killing humans, androids and robots loving tech house music and stuff like that. It all makes for great fun and seems to tie the mix together.
