COLL: Cass - Interpretations 3 Label: Spundae/Mute

Even though I'm not a big trance fan, I think Cass is at least a good DJ. His mixing skills are pretty clean - and his track selections are quite varied. My only problem is that I disliked most of the trance-y tracks on this CD. One gets tired of epic synths. However, I loved the breaks stuff he did on CD 2 - that was some sick shit. In that senseCass is better than the various overpaid trance supa-DJs (a certain P. Oakenfold).

CD 1: Try 3,8,9,10 (10 best)
1. long intro, synth bubbles, mellow beats
2. lush long synth tones, various bubbly effects, some break-y beats
3. broken beats, metallic tones, mechanical effects
4. echo-y female porn talk (several FCCs *fuck*) - kind of a boring track
5. deep-house loop w/ some fluffy synths
6. bassline repeated over & over w/ lush synths
7. dubby bassline & some conga percussion
8. trippy dub-house track w/ some mellow vocals, space-y synth breakdown
9. electro-breakbeats w/ loopy synths, big epic buildups
10. nervy synth tweaks, metallic clangs, sinister bass - cool track
11. trance w/ swirly synths & big breakdown
12. new-wave synth action - w/ robo-ized vocals of Marc Almond

CD 2: Try: 1,2,4,6,7,11. 11 is rad.
1. big epic synth intro goes into jumpy broken beats - beats are cool
2. pretty cool progressive breaks - some nice electro-analog sections
3. mellow trance w/ some analog tweaks
4. thumpy house beats w/ some snappy snares - typical Terry Francis - pretty cool
5. lots of synths, nervy effects, robo-vox sayin' "Shake it" - I've heard much better versions of this track
6. some big crunchy beats & disco guitar/bassline, robo-vox too - pretty cool
7. raw crunchy beats - all-right, some techno-y stuff here - kind of pumpin' for 3 minutes
8. argh - now away from the techno and into some really lush synth fluffy trance - lost me
9. big synthy trance - but with some pretty cool effects - epic breakdown
10. trance & more trance - lush ethereal female vocal w/ some epic breaks
11. this shit is dope - sick analog bass manipulations w/ crashing breaks - excellent
12. back to trance again - loopy percussive synth effects building up big
