Cyprus as the new Ibiza? Cunt as the new fuck? Let's hope the soundtrack's better when you get off the plane. Mind you, high on Mitsubishi's most thing sound, but do they sound good? Do they sound good? Do they sound good? Do they sound good? This is dance music and like the infamous Tony Wilson said, "these are the only records that fucking sell!" Why? It's fifteen year old girls with money in their pocket, it's Blackout sampling 2001 in 'Gotta have hope' and the message is future based, positivity as the new… "all you need is hope in your soul." A lot of tracks follow the template set by Blockster and their 'Groveline' - get it. Drum machine beat as establishment shot, wind up tape rewind and break into nothing much - Ibitha lite - might have been a better title for this Double CD collective. Four or five tracks have already been big chart hits so I guess this will ship a few copies, you got the Phats & Small bassline massive, "Hey what's wrong with you?" Good question. Have you got a minute, an hour? Too long. Time to listen. Time to die/fly. Moloko is a class apart of course with her textured vocals and imaginative use of harmony; singing across the rhythm. Sublime.

Doolally at least add a horn section to their 'Straight From The Heart.' Stand out godawful track on CD1 has to be Da Click with the notorious 'We Are Da Click' - "that's why we're firing like a gun and I got six bullets on my tongue."

CD2 opens with Chicane's 'Saltwater' and sounds likeYTS Enya with a drum beat. Love Station try for a Cypress Hill effect on their pop candy 'Teardrops' - needless to say it's halfhearted and pointless. Masters Of Work at least have a good arrangement and get the keyboards tweaking and 8TB show up the others with their superfantastic 'Till I come.' Jocelyn Brown murders her classic 'Somebody's Else's Guy' and James Brown makes an appearance. Yes, the hardest working man in showbusiness, Mister Please, please, please, Soul Brother number one, The Godfather of Soul, grunts his way through 'Funk On A Roll' but it's not really. It's stodgy and turgid. Nn'G's 'Liferide' mix puts the others to shame and DJ Luck featuring MC Neat need 'A little Bit of Luck' to get them through the night. So will the most hardened clubber if the DJ spins this CD on constant repeat. If this is the Ayia Napa experience, I'd stick to Spain.
