Sander Kleinenberg/Various This is Everybody Too

Sixty minutes into this two-disc mix, I was ready to declare it one of the best I’ve ever heard. Then it settled down, but still remained far above the average mix. Sander Kleinenberg hops many genres for a superior party mix. For more than two hours he manages to encompass electro, tech-house, progressive-house and funked-up break-beats, amid bits and bobs snatched from other genres. Disc one gets off to tech-y start with ambient pop from Christian Kleine and Junior Boys overlaid on melodic, precise German house. After another 20 minutes of swinging tech-house he goes into some of the biggest tracks from the past 12 months, peaking with the knockdown trio of Rowan Blades and Chris Lake’s "Filth,” Infusion’s "Do To You In ’82,” and Tiefschwarz’s mix of Spektrum’s "Kinda New.” Disc two is a little deeper, but no less adventurous, starting off with Robag Wruhme’s glitch-y "Hugendubel.” Elsewhere, Shineygrey’s "Why” is classy progressive house, Dimas & Riva add the percussive "Work Together” and Eday’s "Party to the Music” has one of the best looped vocal samples I have heard in quite a while. The disc ends with the wonderful melody of Redanka’s "Waves.” If I heard a set like this live in a club, I’d come home very tired. (Thrive)
