After five years, Pete Tong still manages to hit a home run with his Pura Pacha parties. Each one attracts a great crowd and special DJ guests. This year Pete manage to pull Groove Armada, David Guetta, Alex Neri and Trentmoller into the fray.
The latest Pura Pacha album features 2CDs of exceptional, upfront hits; Pete on the first, Sarah Main on the second. Highlights from the mix sets include Pyrda "Armed" and Alexkid & Chloe - "Afterblaster" (Mazi & Buriez remix). Sarah's set is pretty good, a bit too much on the pop-house side for our tastes. Most of you will quickly notice the inclusion of the song we all love to hate: Richard Grey - "Tainted Bass". Although Sharam's cut is a little more tolerable.
The best track selection of the entire album is, hands-down, the unrelenting and highly addictive "Make My Day (feat Zdar)" by Eyerer & Chopstick. Pick this album up in August 2007.
