We gave it a B+

There’s a reason John Digweed can fill up the dance floor; he’s a DJ who knows how to home in on a beat without beating it half to death. The foursquare thump on this compilation — part of London nightclub Fabric’s series of DJ mixtapes — is just the armature upon which Digweed (working with raw material courtesy of such artists as Bobby Peru and Slam) builds his sound castles in the air: luxurious washes of synthesizer, angelic voices, slippery bass, and stair-climbing drums.
