Overview

Tresor's sixth compilation commemorates the Berlin label's 100th release with an excellent variety of techno that spans the world as well as the style itself. This collection is no doubt Tresor's most varied to date, featuring producers from Detroit (Scan 7, Blake Baxter, Infiniti), Britain (Regis, James Ruskin, Surgeon, Cristian Vogel, Neil Landstrumm), Germany (Pacou, Heiko Laux, Basic Channel, Substance), and elsewhere. All of the featured producers contribute some of their best work, a particular highlight being the Basic Channel contribution, "Octaedre." It comes late on the album and kicks like a horse, relentlessly hammering away for over 13 furious and downright dizzying minutes. Though none of the other contributions on this collection clock nearly as long, most of them similarly hammer away relentlessly. In fact, the only tracks here that don't are Baxter's "Used to Kiss Me" -- a sultry vocal track that samples PJ Harvey and certainly stands out among all the hard techno here -- and also Infiniti's "Thought Process" and Substance's "Plate Element 2." These latter two tracks come late in the album, preceding and succeeding "Octaedre," respectively, and help conclude the album with a bit of dubby tranquility. From beginning to end, Tresor sequences this sixth volume perfectly, unleashing all the hard, pounding tracks before moving on to the more eccentric styles of Vogel, Baxter, and Landstrumm and, finally, the deeper, dubbier, and moodier sounds of the concluding four tracks. It's a fittingly excellent commemoration of Tresor's 100th release, which is indeed quite an accomplishment in the trendy world of dance music and certainly worth celebrating in grand fashion.
