DJ Enrie

Turn It Up 2

Moonshine

Famed Los Angeles Power 106 jock, DJ Enrie, returns to Moonshine for the second installment of his Turn It Up series. Staying true to volume one, this album is strictly high energy, pumping, UK style hard house music mixed in an expert manner by Enrie.

The music on this disc just screams for attention. The tracks on here flow so fluidly into each other that it’s tough to distinguish one from another, and even tougher to sit still while listening. Some notable tracks include Sharp Tools’ “Volume Four,” the Groove Brothers’ “Work,” JJ and Tony’s club classic “Reach Up,” Chris C and Dynamic Intervention’s “Rock Right Now,” and the ever popular DJ Misjah and Tim’s “Access.”

Unfortunately, though, with Turn It Up 2, you really can “get too much of a good thing”. By the time this disc reaches the last 20 minutes, it begins to get tiresome, and repetitious (or maybe I have an attention span problem?). This is great music to listen to while cleaning house, working out, dancing, or pursuing some other kind of strenuous physical activity, though.

Screen Reviews

The fact that the band Slaves to Sirens exists is impressive, but that they live, love, and breathe to play metal takes things to another level. Sirens documents the journey. Review by Charles DJ Deppner.
