Sister Bliss - Nightmoves

Sister Bliss may be best known for her part in Faithless, but, whatever you think of that band's stadium dance, not to mention their relationship to Dido, it's worth leaving your pre-conceptions at the door for Nightmoves. This two disc mix gives Bliss a chance to flex her DJ muscles and thankfully manages to be accessible without being cheesy.

There's a carefree retro vibe to disc one, the more enjoyable of the two. The likes of Body Jackin and Shimmering Stars (Joey Negro Galaxarian dub) welcomingly reference late 80s house and the sexy Premature Ejaculation draws on I Feel Love-style disco. However, Bliss also makes room for inoffensive trance (Jupiter Calling) and offbeat electro-pop in the form of With You Forever. Disc two pulls out the big names: Layo & Bushwacka!, Underworld and - wouldn't you guess? - Faithless, although the latter two have been remixed by Mark Knight and Gabriel & Dresden respectively. There is also an unlikely Rollo & Sister Bliss remix of The Enemy's This Song; it works better than you might expect.

Standing out from all the other dance mixes released during the summer months is - I imagine - a bit like fighting your way on to the dancefloor during high season at Space. Still, Nightmoves, if not quite special, has more than its fair share of good tunes. Worth a pout and a dark pair of glasses.
