Balance 021


Saved Records boss Nic Fanciulli delivers a stunningly intricate mix for this installment in the Balance Music series. The first CD, 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 years 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. Its intelligent arrangement really paves the way for an overriding sense of permanence that is so often missing in many of today's compilations. On the second CD, Saved, Nic showcases the sound and ethos of his own Saved Records with a collection of records exclusive to the imprint. While 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 are 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 emphasizes the dedication to quality that has made Saved one of the most respected labels in the UK and around the globe.
