Various - Club Fever 2009
Club Fever 2009 generally doesn't sound like any club I'd want to set foot in. Disc 1 is - horror of horrors, call the cool police, etc - full of remixes of chart tunes. Perhaps Jason Nevins and Far Too Loud do a better job of converting Katy Perry and Lily Allen hits to the dancefloor than you might expect, but otherwise it really does make for a grim listening experience, particularly with the likes of P!nk's So What and Freemasons' current radio annoyance, Heartbreak (Make Me A Dancer), showing up. Disc 2 fares better, thanks to both a smattering of credible names (Deadmau5, The Prodigy, Empire of the Sun) and updates of cheesy-but-irresistable tunes (Shake It (Move A Little Closer), Need To Feel Loved, Toca's Miracle). All in all, a so-so compilation, but at least there's no Basshunter.
