AT LAST!!! Grammy award winning remix/production duo Deep Dish step to the plate again with their second installment in the esteemed Global Underground series, GU#025 Toronto. Not only is this 2xCD mix the logical progression from their 2001 Global Underground debut, GU#021 Moscow, it is the silver anniversary edition for the series that has introduced dance music?s international elite (Oakenfold, Sasha, Digweed, etc.) to the world. This duo, currently enjoying the success of their Billboard chart-topping remix of Justin Timberlake, has worked with everyone, from Janet Jackson to The Rolling Stones and are recognized globally for their signature DJ mixes and remix credits. On Toronto, Ali and Sharam subtly fuse together Deep House, Garage, Tech-House and Techno in the typically eclectic style that has become the trademark of their DJ sets the world over. Their deep and soulful eight-hour set (playing to over 3,000 attendees) at Canada?s largest nightclub, Toronto?s The Guvernment, in December 2002 inspired the double disc set which includes an abundant amount of exclusive tracks and outstanding vocal remixes, a standard of Deep Dish production. As Moscow before it, this release be the definitive dance music mixed compilation for years to come.

"I sick of reading Global Underground reviews exclaiming how "flawless" the mixes are. Of course they are. I hate to burst your bubble, but all of the global underground CD's are mixed by the same guy, in a studio, on a computer. The artist picks the tracklisting, and is the face on the cover of the cd...Thats it. These albums are NOT mixed live, and G.U. has never claimed them to be. But, besides that fact, they are great albums."

"I was lucky with my acquisition of this album. Mine was the four disc box set that included Dubfire and Sharam's own Afterclub mixes and it was the same price as the two disc set. It seems that the four disc box set is not available so I will review the Afterclub mixes separately. Ironic that the duo stamped their indivual names on the Afterclub mixes...foreshawdowing for GU029: Dubai and GU031: Taipei?
Overall Global Underground 025: Toronto demonstrates what Deep Dish are masters at. Mixing (not producing) great house and progressive house tracks. There a few tracks from other genres mixed in for good measure but this is predominantly a "house" album.
The decision to give the album a 5 star rating was due to rounding up and not down the ratings I gave each individual track for each disc and then taking in context the entire set overall.
Disc 1 is a fairly decent mix, but what a dissapointment that the last track is P. Diddy's atrocious attempt to contibute to the world of electronica, "Lets Get Ill". In case you are wondering...not even Deep Dish's phenomenal mixing skills improve on the original release. Did these guys own him a favor or something?
Disc 2 is pure and untainted by any dud tracks. "Breezer" by Junkie XL and Sasha is a gem of a track.
Disc 1 gets 4/5 stars (mostly because of the last track dragging down the overall average) and disc 2 5/5 stars.
