2007 release. Get Physical co-founder DJ T aka Thomas Koch follows M.A.N.D.Y's first Body Language mix from last year with his first-ever mix compilation. Koch looks to Detroit for the warm, weeping bass and mournful vocal of the mix opener, The Other People Place's "Let Me Be Me" by the deceased former Drexciya member James Stinson and the euphoric Carl Craig remix of "Falling Up" by Theo Parrish midway through. In contrast, the finale is the smart acid rework by IsoleƩ of Villalobos' melancholic "What You Say..." and a warm, snaking remix by DJ Koze of Heiko Voss' pop techno standard, "I Think About You" combine for an exquisite, emotional climax. In between this are gems and future classics: 1998's haunting vocal house of DJ Naughty's remix of Stella's "Extralife," as well as the dirty, bleepy Chicago groove of ASP's "Reality Check." Also find the moody bass and Italo chords of Tensnake's "Around The House," and the subtle trance builds of Gui Boratto's "Arquipelago" on Kompakt. The German DJ's production skills are also in the spotlight with the inclusion of the evocative "Marsha" by Einzelkind, and so on. Of course, this ability to pick and mix the right tunes would mean nothing without presentation and context: sure, Body Language Vol. 2 is indicative of pretty much everything that is great about European electronic music -- check the fusion of stripped back minimalism and futuristic soulful vocal on the Barlz E Syntho remix of Spektrum's "Horny Pony" and the chiming, squelchy "Sweet Cow" by Chicken Lips -- but it never delves into deep self-indulgence. It's possible to enjoy this mix on a hot beach as much as you could in a sweaty basement club and that says it all about Body Language 2: it's music for the head, heart and feet for house music lovers all over the world.
