Ultra Chilled, Vol. 2

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Lydia Vanderloo
Matching the impressive down-tempo vibe of 2001's Ultra Chilled Vol. 1, this follow-up mix from New York DJ David Waxman strikes the perfect in-between chord: in between rock and dance, in between day and night. Of the two discs here, the first leans more heavily on moody, rock-based tracks, with mellow, meditative tracks from Coldplay, Ivy, and Radiohead. In keeping with the in-between theme, Waxman includes tracks from pop-tronica acts like the noir-ish Goldfrapp, the soulful Groove Armada, and the Air-y Zero 7, and he spikes the mix with a hint of Latin flavor remixes of tracks by Nelly Furtado and Bebel Gilberto.

Barnes & Noble - Lydia Vanderloo
Matching the impressive down-tempo vibe of 2001's Ultra Chilled Vol. 1, this follow-up mix from New York DJ David Waxman strikes the perfect in-between chord: in between rock and dance, in between day and night. Of the two discs here, the first leans more heavily on moody, rock-based tracks, with mellow, meditative tracks from Coldplay, Ivy, and Radiohead. In keeping with the in-between theme, Waxman includes tracks from pop-tronica acts like the noir-ish Goldfrapp, the soulful Groove Armada, and the Air-y Zero 7, and he spikes the mix with a hint of Latin flavor remixes of tracks by Nelly Furtado and Bebel Gilberto. Complementing the vocal tracks on the first disc, its largely instrumental companion slows down the tempo even further, easing in with cushiony electronic tracks such as Max Melvin's woozy "Sand" and Tosca's "Honey," upping the pace to provoke a gentle sweat on Sasha's breezy ten-minute workout "Baja," and cooling down with a brace of folksy tunes speckled with vocals and acoustic guitars Nitin Sawhney's serene "Sunset," Alphawezen's "Into the Stars". Plunked in the middle -- and fitting in surprisingly well -- is the Specials' 1981 ska nugget "Ghost Town," its sinister organ lines acting as a foil to the lighthearted surroundings. A cool way to spend the evening -- and a cool way to sample a variety of sounds from points across the globe -- Ultra Chilled Vol. 2 is a soothing tonic.
All Music Guide - John Bush
The blueprint for Ultra Chilled, Vol. 2 is the same as the solid first edition in Ultra's downbeat series -- which rose above the heap of substandard, commercialized chill-out compilations -- with compilers balancing a few downtempo tracks by a varying cast of vocal artists (Coldplay, the Specials, Black Box Recorder, Nelly Furtado, Bebel Gilberto, Radiohead) with electronica specialists (here, usual suspects like Boards of Canada, Groove Armada, Thievery Corporation, Tosca, Fila Brazillia, and Röyksopp).
