Luke McKeehan’s approach to Nordic Trax has served him well for two decades now, concentrating on tracks that reflect what he likes musically rather than any blatant attempts to chase a trend or the next big thing. That has led to a high quality threshold, an assurance that when Nordic Trax release a track that it is at the very least a piece of quality house music. The 20 tracks for 20 years include the label’s best and also some unreleased gems, such as Nacho Marco’s ‘Northern Spirit’, with its winning piano, Jon Delerious’ ‘Let’s Work’ and Giom’s remix of Gavin Froome’s ‘Don’t Come Home’. A strong appeal lies in Mark Farina & Homero Espinosa’s remix of Alexander East’s ‘Believe En Me’, reworked beautifully, as well as Christoph’s ‘Big H’, a quality piece of nocturnal house with tuned percussion. High quality house music from a consistently excellent source.
