A journey through dance

"The fading in of the tribal drums beats taking us through an experience of gradual trance of house/dance sounds.
Terry Francis has compiled a great piece of dance Dejaying, and it appeals to not just dance house music fans, but to anybody who has an open mind towards the way Dejaying is going.
I must admit I was not a great house music fan until a friend recommended that I give this album a listen, what a great mate thanks Gary Girrard.
Even though this album is now a few years old it has stood the test of time, other similar artists of interest : Ian Pooley, Cassius, other record labels: soma, global underground"
Tech-house: a welcome middle ground to explore

"Francis, voted Best New DJ by Muzik magazine in 1997 and current Fabric resident DJ, started in the house scene before jumping to the forefront in the hot new "tech-house" sound. Like any good sub-genre, this style is exactly as it implies, fusing steady techno rhythms with the soul and accessibility of house. Listener newbies may find this splash of color to steel techno beats, and preference to rhythm over house banging, a welcome middle ground to explore.Architecture flows seamlessly through pieces of dub and deep-end, and in typical techno form forgoes lyrics - replaced effectively with a stream of soundbites, dialogue, and radio transmissions. In fact, an hour of this may be too smooth for some listeners, with tracks selected best for the blend and not an emotional charge. Those looking for a tireless ride on rhythm, however, may have found their answer. Grade: B+"
The Godfather of TECH HOUSE

"Being a Tech house afficionato, I found this CD to be uplifting, beautiful and moving while still keeping its rough "Tech" edge. Terry proves in this mix why he is an innovator and one of the world's best DJs."
