Various - Creamfields: Ferry Corsten

Hailing from Holland, Ferry Corsten is well known for his DJ sets and 2004 hit Rock Your Body Rock. This two disc mix combines his name with that of one of the UK's leading dance festivals.

Anyway, ignore the fact that CD2 is a fairly straightforward (though pounding, if you like that sort of thing) trance set and glue CD1 to the tray. It's a far more interesting and eclectic affair, which is sure to satisfy the more broad-minded clubber.

House Headz' Stella, with its sparse, breathy vocals, could be the most uplifting (indeed, sexiest) dance track in quite some time. David West's Larry Mountains 54 is another euphoric gem; awash with pleasing sounds, it's like being whisked away to a fantasy world for five minutes. Elsewhere, Gabriel & Dresden's Arcadia begins a bit like Faithless' God Is a DJ before twisting and turning to take in experiments with frequencies and gothy bass guitar. A number of tracks, such as The Skeleton Key's The Conjure and Tim Deluxe's Reflections, give this disc an often electro feel.

Creamfields: Ferry Corsten is two CDs with two distinct styles. Primarily recommended for the refreshing nature of the first alone, if you enjoy hands-in-the-air trance (as showcased on the second) it may just be essential.
