Steve Porter - Porterhouse 2

Human beings express their creativity in different ways. Most of the times, they express it through art, which can be music, sculpture, painting, literature. In the electronic music, creativity can be expressed either through technique, or musical selection. Most of the time, it is recommended that both qualities be over posed and create a whole. Steve Porter chose firstly the musical selection on his latest mix compilation, but he also took in consideration the technique, which is perfect.

On his second Porterhouse installment, Porter featured no more and no less than 57 tracks split into two separated mixes.

On the first CD we find some of Porter's own creations, but also productions of some old electronic music artists. Let's just name Way Out West with its track Appolo, remixed by General Midi. Plump DJs are also present on this mix with Black Jack. But the ones which are very numerous on this compilation are Steve Porter and Chris Micali's productions. Actually the surprise comes when we listen to Judge Jules andBK's track, I Don't Know. The mix is quick, the tracks change rapidly, and you don't even have time to get used to the bass line, that you end up listening to something else. But all in all, the style is almost the same for the entire compilation: funny and full of life. Maybe it is trying to express as well as it can Porter's personality.
