Balance presents Subeats, mixed by Hernan Cattaneo - review

Balance Presents Sudbeats is a fine mix, by the master of cool house and techno: Hernan Cattaneo.

Sudbeats is the name of Hernan Cattaneo's recording label and this edition of the Balance series hosts many excellent Sudbeats releases.

Disc 1 is a laid back journey but its not really laid back! We really like Anton Tumas & Eugene Toale - Endless story, Kevin Di Serna & Ditian - Everest and the great Nick Warren & Tripswitch - Savannah. Disc 1 does gain tempo as it moves along and all of the songs are well placed and beautifully mixed.

Disc 2 is also typical of Hernan Cattaneo as its slowly gathers pace from the subtle beginnings of Simon Vuarambon & Sidartha Siliceo - Liberation, through to the nice melody that is supplied by Audio Junkies, Lonya - Ima.

After Balance 026 hopes were high for this latest addition to the Balance series. Our hopes have been rewarded as once more, Hernan Cattaneo does what he does so well: a finely crafted mix, of laid back tunes which feed into a higher tempo second act, without ever losing that vibe of quality.
