2007 two CD follow up to the best-selling debut compilation from The Thrillseekers, who are renowned for their high-profile remixes, including reworks for Tisto, Armin, Ferry Corsten and Chicane. Almost frighteningly upfront, Disc One has more than a splash of exclusives about it and includes the shiny new Thrillseekers single. 'Conversely', Disc Two shines the spotlight on the tracks that Steve Helstrip has hammered gig in, gig out, across the world, over the last 12 months. All in all, here at Team Thrillseekers, we are pretty confident that we've achieved, dare we say it, the near-impossible: an even better compilation than the first! 30 tracks including cuts from Marco V, Joop, Delerium, Supermodels From Paris, Above & Beyond, Lange, Simon Patterson and more.

The only thing that disappointed about the cd was the arrangement of the tracks on disc 2. It left me with that confused feeling but still very good with some of the tracks on disc 2 more than made up for this disappointment. The tracks I speak of are "headstrong - the truth", "delirium - angelicus", "filo & peri - ordinary moment" , and "mind one - hurt of intention".
Overall this is an excellent compilation from The Thrillseekers. Very good track selection and mixing. Definitely better than Night Music volume 1, so if you enjoyed that cd then you will simply love this one. This compilation is a must have for any trance lover.
Plus365 begins with a Thrillseekers original, "Waiting Here For You," an extremely beautiful melodic trance track with incredible vocals. The first disc is truly Night Music, and is some of my favorite electronic music to play whilst driving on a highway or any type of road at night, occasionally stealing glances at the moon and feeling the shivers sent down my spine. Oftentimes I just can't help but smile to myself. Plus365 is peppered with incredible artists whose tracks all contribute to form a Balearic mosaic of sound that is quite unsurpassed by DJ's as relatively new as Steve. Included on the first disc are tracks from the likes of Kyau & Albert, Solarstone ("Late Summer Fields" is a personal favorite), Marco V., Joop, Forerunners and Simon Patterson's fantastic "Strip Search." Going back to the first track, it is a bit of a teaser because Helstrip wastes absolutely no time in upping the tempo and BPM so that we find ourselves encapsulated once again in pulsating trance euphoria similar, but more developed, to that of those tracks found on V.1. Weaving brightly distinctive melody with relentless and ever-changing beats compounds the strength of this album, making comparisons to similar artists almost impossible. Occasionally, select tracks will up the ante with a jolt of more forceful trance; such tracks include "Reflect" (making a great appearance on Tiesto's In Search of Sunrise 6: Ibiza), "Possible But Unlikely," "Project: Project" and the final two tracks, "Strip Search" and "Innerstamatick." There is no question that an initially pleasantly melodic album ends with BLISTERING severity. It is just the crux of The Thrillseekers' ingenuity at work.
Disc two (Minus365) enters with a trippy remix of "Keep On," a nice avant-garde acid house track that jumpstarts pulses and foreshadows a wild and interesting disc to come. Again, an all-star lineup of artists has been selected for inclusion such as Supermodels From Paris, Simon & Shaker, Headstrong, Delerium, Purple Haze, Alex M.O.R.P.H., Above & Beyond, Stoneface & Terminal, The Thrillseekers and Sander van Doorn. As you may have noticed, I listed just about every artist on the second disc, which should act as a final testament as to how good this disc truly is. "The Truth" and "Angelicus" inject the heat into Minus365, and the acid house vibe rides comfortably alongside a progressive trance vibe a la Markus Schulz. This dichotomy disguised as paradox comes into fruition during "Zero" and the entire sequence between and including "Nymph" through "Hurt of Intention." The Thrillseekers' second self-produced track to appear on the compilation, "Newlife," literally breathes new life into the mix after A&B's blistering Club Mix of "Good For Me." Newlife dually paves the way for the cataclysmic climax of Minus365, begun by Sean Tyas' "Lift" but absolutely erupting with Sander's "Punk'd." This track is so intense it mirrors almost precisely the live performance he gave in Baltimore in early August that I was lucky enough to attend. In the same blister-inducing fashion as Plus365, Minus 365 comes to immensely satisfying closure with a track by the sublime Stoneface & Terminal, segued into perfectly by Sander's insanity.
Bottom line, this album will leave you drooling down your shirt for Nightmusic V.3. Steve Helstrip is one of the most exciting new DJ's to enter the scene in the past several years, and his wondrous efforts are gloriously catalogued within these volumes. Nightmusic V.2 is, without the slightest doubt in my mind, just about twice as fantastic as was its predecessor, and I believe that if The Thrillseekers continue to make pole-vaults of such strength in the future, Helstrip should contend for the trance Olympics. A must-have for "The Summer of Trance."
Disc one has the slight advantage over disc two because the entire disc has unity from start to finish. You get an exceptional opener "Waiting for You" then Helstrip draw the listeners with tracks like Project:Project, Why Don't We Talk About it and Always a Fool. Inspiring Tracks like Sunlight, Late Summer Fields (a personal favorite) Reflect and Lifecycle by Forerunners (another personal favorite, a much better mix than AVB's Universal Religion 2008) all mixed very well with superb quality. But the two ending tracks, Stripe Search and Innerstamatick relly shines, the colorful and pulsating beats close it out only to bring listners vast curiosity of what disc two brings to the table. Disc one is worth the admission itself.
Disc two gets a fast jump start from "Keep On" by Supermodel From Paris. This track is quite delightful. A little bit of trippy acid-house beats, thrown in to keep listerers occupied moving to track two. Zero by Simon & Shaker cranks it up to keep things moving and grooving. Track three "The Truth" by Headstrong is good although the tempo sort of shifted down to a softer mood, but not for long. Because track four pick up where track three left off. Steve Helstrip waste no time by inserting Angelicus by Delerium and Ordinary Moment by Filo & Peri. The transition between those two are impeccable. You'll be surprised when track five Ordinary Moment slowly enters the scene, for this is the next track but don't let Thrillseekers tell you the element of surprise never existed here. By now one should note, disc two is the crazier side, the momentum has shifted rapidly beyond ones expectation. Highlighted tracks Newlife, Nymph, Rush and Punk'd provide energetic, fast tempo, trancing beats a perfect closure for disc two. I also personally enjoy Lift by Sean Tyas and Super Nature by Stoneface & Terminal, great ending tracks.
Overall Vol.2 will make you hungry for Vol.3. In respect to Vol.1, Vol.2 has taken over for now. This set is very balanced, you get two disc, each disc provides and presents different atmosphere of pure enjoyment. I also recommend ISOS 6 and Universal Religion 2008 for the liking of this one.
So if you do, too, I think you'll like this album.
Of the 29 tracks on these 2 CDs, here's how I've rated them ("10.0" being best):
9 tracks got a rating of 10.0;
4 tracks got a rating of 9.5;
2 tracks got a rating of 9.0;
2 tracks got a rating of 8.5;
7 tracks got a rating of 8.0.
A "10.0" means I pretty much can't get enough of it, for days and weeks and months on end. On this compilation, these are:
...Sunlight (by Breakfast), track # 6 on CD1
...Zero (by Simon & Shaker), track # 2 on CD2
...The Truth (David West Remix) (by Headstrong), track #3 on CD2
...Angelicus (Andy Moor Remix) (by Delerium Feat. Isabel Bayrakdarian), track # 4 on CD2
...Ordinary Moment (Breakfast Mix) (by Filo & Peri Feat. Fisher), track #5 on CD2
...Good For Me (Club Mix) (by Above & Beyond), track #10 on CD2
...Newlife (Mike Koglin 2007 Remix) (by The Thrillseekers), track #11 on CD2
...Lift (by Sean Tyas), track #12 on CD2
...Super Nature (by Stone & Terminal), track #14 on CD2
I won't list the rest. Suffice it to say, anything "8.0" and above is good enough for me to have the CD residing indefinitely in my car player.
So you get the idea.
Get it and enjoy the beautiful music!
