Overview

All of Nettwerk's chillout compilations have demonstrated the label's licensing muscle and mostly bounce between straight-up electronica and remixes from the precious side of pop. The Best of Chillout Past and Present stays the course, adding a more high-profile set of tracks. Big names Delerium, Dido, and Sarah McLachlan all get wistfully remixed, but Moby's "Porcelain" shows up in its original version. Picking the Postal Service and remembering what a great track Hybrid's "Finished Symphony" is shows how with-it Nettwerk can be when it comes to the feather-and-clouds side of chillout. While not really mixed, the songs do just brush up against one another and the flow of the album works just fine. The Hybrid track and Mad Professor's sweet and drippy mix of "Teardrop" hail all the way back to the late '90s, which must justify the "Past" in the title.

“The Best of Chillout: Past and Present” contain a great mix of hits that are a medley of pop and electronic. I had previously heard a few of these songs through an electronica radio station. My favorite song on this collection has to be “Satellite” by BT. There are also classics such as “Teardrop” by Massive Attack featured on this unique cd. “The Best of Chillout: Past and Present” is best for those who love a hybrid of pop and/or electronica music.
