If Space really is going to close this year, then Cr2 are making sure it goes out in style. This triple header is made up of mixes from Carl Cox – who else? – Pig & Dan and Mark Brown. The chief attraction in Cox’s set is a Nile Rodgers collaboration, ‘Ohh Baby’ – given here in a David Tort dub that caps a very impressive line of tracks running from Deetron’s ‘Photon’ through Harry Romero’s ‘What What’ and Fabio Neural’s ‘Black Widow’. Good though the Cox mix is, though, it’s arguably eclipsed by an absolute belter from Pig & Dan, a powerfully building mix of house and techno that really makes its mark with their own ‘Complex’ and the rolling beats of Uakoz & Alex Lentini ‘s ‘Umparallel’. Finally Cr2 head Mark Brown gets his hands dirty with a mix including the distinctive ‘In The Mist’, a great track from Argy & Jerome Sydenham, before the warmth of Jamie xx’s ‘SeeSaw’, in Nic Fanciulli remix form, caps the day. If it is to be gone, then compilations like this will make sure it is definitely not forgotten!
