Following on from Deetron's brilliantly executed Balance 020 project, Balance Music presents Balance 021 mixed by Nic Fanciulli. The Saved Records boss delivers a stunningly intricate mix that Highlights his ethos as DJ and label owner.
CD1, entitled simply 'Balance' is a subtle and expertly crafted mix that balances a plethora of diverse tracks, often three at a time, to create an expansive but well focused journey. Infused with a true timeless quality, the mix was approached in a way that will enable it to sound as good in ten year time as it does today. Individual records were meticulously edited one by one to provide the album with a fluid and natural flow, displaying a more heightened sense of musicality than we are often used to in dance music. It's intelligent arrangement really paves the way for an overriding sense of permanence that is so often missing in many of today's compilations.
On CD2, Nic showcases the sound and ethos of his own Saved Records with a collection of records exclusive to the imprint. Whilst keeping the focus on quality house music, the mix highlights the diversity within the label with a discernable collection of tracks that straddle various styles, atmospheres and tempos, many of which will be available exclusively through Balance 021. From deep and melodic grooves to stripped back bounce, rolling bass-lines, jacking beats and everything in between, the second disc truly emphasises the dedication to quality that has made Saved one of the most respected Labels in the UK and around the globe.
