Various (mixed by Eddie Halliwell) - Eddie Halliwell presents Fire It Up
Eddie Halliwell: Ibiza veteran, new(ish) superstar DJ, own slot on Radio 1, etc. So why does this sound like any other harsh techno/trance mix? (Of which there are no shortage.) Fire It Up begins fairly promisingly, drawing on genres such as minimal and tech house, and even spitting out the occasional twisted gem (see Sander van Doorn's The Bass). Then the usual generic trance arrives, followed by a climax which is more tiresomely bangin' than memorable. Or maybe I'm just getting old.
