DJ Escape

Party Time 2002

Groovilicious

If you’ve ever heard DJ Escape, then you not only know what an amazing dance DJ he is, you also know that he only mixes some of the freshest songs getting airplay. On his latest conquest, the continuous two-disc set Party Time 2002, he exceeds all expectations. Disc one is a Mecca of perfected remixed house such as “Groovejet” (DJ Spiller), “Runnin’” (Basstoy), and “Keep Control” (Sono). Disc two is loaded to the max with great remixes of songs most of us will have heard such as “Stranger in My House” (Tamia), “Sweet Surrender” (Sarah McLachlan), “You Are Alive” (Fragma), “Feel The Beat” (Darude), “Ordinary World” (Aurora), and “Derb” (Derb). Disc two is like dance religion, and after two full length CDs, trust me, you’re going to need all the heavenly help you can get you hands on. Buy this if you’re a fan of DJ Escape, if you truly like five or more of the above-listed artists, or if you just want to try a new house collection that doesn’t have a remixed version of “Survivor” on it.
