2.Ensaneia - (Bonus Beat mix, Ft Pascal's Bongo Massive)
4.Midnight on West 27th Street
12.Mindstream (Mind the Bend the Mind)
This is a continuos in-the-mix CD compiled and mixed by DJ Danny Howells.
Recording information: Hook Empire Studios, Toronto, Ontario, Canada; Siesta Studios, San Diego, CA.
Danny Howells has been known for smuggling funky goods into the staunchly monochromatic coalition of progressive dance, sometimes within ten-hour sets, but his two-CD NuBreed mix is milder than his usual work. It's rough tech-house without the floor-packing energy, using DJ Dan, Echomen, 16B, Meat Beat Manifesto, and his own Science Dept for 120 BPM-styled mood warpage. The result is narrowly danceable; something best played at low volumes when you notice the days are getting colder and shorter. A bit too indistinct to make many return visits. ~ Dean Carlson
