Artist: James Lavelle
Title: GU#026: Romania
Format: CD
Label: Global Underground (@)
Rated: *****
World famous Dj James Lavelle (also know for his latest Mo'Wax album "Never, Never Land" as U.N.K.L.E. and his remixes of Queens of Stonage, Dj Shadow, Metallica) takes the 26th spot in the list of places covered by Global Underground's world-trotting dj-spinning series and bangs out the coolest beats of his December 13, 2003 Romania set at Studio Martin. After his 100'000 copies selling GU debut with the Barcelona title, uncle James is sure to hit the jackpot again with a slightly different style and combination of elements, including lots of U.N.K.L.E. material and some of the remixes he's worked on (like the amazing opening track by Queens of the Stone Age, as well as Dj Shadow, a Sasha remix of U.N.K.L.E. and other cool tracks by Chemical Brothers, Richie Hawtin, Photek). This album is so powerful and eclectic that chances are most of you will find something in it to like about it... I certainly did, and, again, I am so psyched about that Queens of the Ston Age track! It is just pumping like crazy!
