It's a gem, isn't it? I've got it on again now. I think four years ago he was less famous than he is now, so his sets were earlier in the night and were deeper and more melodic. I think this set shows beyond doubt his ability to craft and smooth and flowing set.

EDIT: Although I'd forgotten how much this set gets going in the second half.


It really is. I swear these guys are almost all better starting out the night than playing peak time. They play all the interesting tracks early in the night it appears and nothing but big room bangers at peak time

The city series in particular and label in general at least have the potential for some kind of future now that Ministry of Sound is no longer running things. While it may have been inevitable that GU would have lost much of its clout as the mix market became over saturated and crowds began migrating to other sounds, the rather cartoonish direction they took during the mid-late oughts cost them much of their reputation as well. But now things are back under Horsfield's control, and I'm also really excited to learn that Andrew Archer (of Trafik) is also the label manager, as those guys were responsible for all those gorgeous Electric Calm and Afterhours downtempo compilations.


Berlin and Baumel may be unusual choices for a GU, but I suppose that's the point. Their legend still precedes them, as being offered a GU will always be seen as a hallmark of success, and Baumel would be foolish to turn that down.

I don't think Baumel is an unusual choice. It's a series associated most closely with progressive house, and he plays a lot of unashamed progressive house. I saw a Facebook post of his where he said "I love the space between progressive house and techno", so he's not one of these guys who'd rather slice out his own tongue than use the dreaded P-word.

not a fan of this particular set. But I've heard him play a straight up Prog set before and the guy is on the way up. He's actually getting booked in the US lately

Finally got around to listening to this; fantastic first hour.

I don't think I had ever 'written off' Patrice Baumel, I just recall not being especially taken with his material when I first came across him toward the end of the oughts, and just wasn't a priority as digging became more and more time consuming.

I've probably posted this somewhere else in the past, but this was the biggest impression he left on me, regrettably produced during peak mnml, but wow, what a payoff!
