Perfecto Presents: People


Oakenfold’s new disciple, D:Fuse, has stepped out of Texas obscurity with decks and cowboy hat standing tall. People is a two-disc dance extravaganza, loaded with good music and Teflon-smooth mixes. The first disc is filled with straight-up houses bangers by Fever, Liquideyes, Ryan Maunder, and Wax Poetic. There’s nothing on here that prompts stasis. The second disc has more of a progressive/trancey feel with tracks from Moda, Paul Van Dyk, Simon Noble, Lastmanstanding, and a real scorcher, “Turquoise,” by Circulation. Yet again, only traction will keep you from moving to this disc. Though I still contend that double mix CDs are a bit excessive, and exhaustive, D:Fuse keeps the music compelling.
