I think that both are very good, but the LA opening is performance art at it's finest

gu019 still my favorite mix. I strongly disagree that it aged badly (just a few vocal trucks looks outdated). The thing is: the mixing is just too good. some of the best transitions that i've ever heard are present there.

I'm not quite sure you know what "performance art" means.

I dug out GU:019 recently and tried listening to it again in the vain hope it might finally click for me. Nope. It still sounds as utterly fucking boring as it ever did. Maybe this kind of dark tribally 2001 prog sounded great in a dark loud nightclub, but at home in the headphones it's just so... dry.

I've never understood this sentiment either. Is it really so impressive to ProTools together a bunch of near-identical 10 minute dark prog records? The structure and builds on these records are so slow and minimalist that blending them for minute after minute is neither difficult nor dazzling. And that touches upon probably my biggest problem with GU:019: just how homogeneous it is. In time honoured fashion, CD2 is somewhat more banging than CD1 but the variation in mood and style across each disc is virtually non-existent. GU:014 has its dark tribal moments but it also has a very groovy deep house start and some concessions to '99 prog trance action later on. GU:019 is everything that people started hating prog for: it's peakless, plodding, lacking any sense of fun and almost hermetically sealed in its genre purity.

Actually I am not a DJ or have any idea how the hell the whole thing works (KNOBSSS), so no point in arguing with you if the mixing is technical or not, since I know that you are a good dj - I can just tell you that I love the long blends present there and also the tracklist is bonkers (imo). Also, it is good to point out that this kind of long blends present in GU019 are pretty much dead these days (or maybe I'm just listening the wrong dudes lol)

Apollo Vibes is indeed a great opening track!

Been re-listening to this one lately https://www.discogs.com/Various-Glo...ns/release/9520 and what a great mix this is, the opener is just as good or even better than on the LA.
and the track Delta Of Venus by Main Element is the fucking bomb!

You're right, performance art was a reach. I guess what I was thinking was it's a beautiful intro, and like Kpree said, flawless in transition

heard again yesterday, just in case.

the combo 'inner laugh' -> 'the fall' -> 'one last time' is brutal.
