Various Orange: House Sessions — Fresh Uplifting Vibes from the Dance Floor

There is sometimes a fine line between uplifting happy house and a dance compilation à la MC Mario. These 15 tracks teeter somewhere right in between, with an added dose of soulful disco provided by tracks from Groove Armada as well as the Funk Bandit. It will undoubtedly please the whole gamut of brand-name-chic club goers who would like to bring back a piece of the previous night’s hard bodied extravaganza. Unlike the pulsating heavy beat drone of Andrea Doria’s "Bucci Bag,” Junior Jack’s "E-Samba” leans heavily on the commercial dance realm of electronic music. It’s a solid effort for what it’s worth.
