© High Contrast RecordingsFeaturing music from across the electronic dance range, including 31 tracks and remixes from W&W And Mark Sixma, Marco V, Orjan Nilsen, Jochen Miller, Marcel Woods, Alex M.O.R.P.H. and many more...

As this dance music year starts to draw to a close, High Contrast Recordings are ready to put 2011 through the sound barrier with their latest compilation expedition. The man tasked with compiling and mixing it is none other than genre-explorer extraordinaire, Ali Wilson.

Late last year, through the release of his ‘Phenomenon’ album, Ali established himself as one of the producers to watch throughout 2011. By the same stroke it sent his deck career into overdrive, with turntable duty being served at a many major worldwide events and festivals.

Now he’s been given the keys to a trove of the best current and forthcoming crop from High Contrast Recordings and beyond and he’s ready to deal the year some compilation justice!

Wilson instantly draws the listener in on Mix 1 with the Dyor Feat. Matthew Hall’s groovy-but-moody ‘On The Road’ and ‘I Die’, the moving, Sue McLaren-sung current single from Dennis Sheperd & Alan Morris. The album’s audio initially charts a chunky, proggy path, but don’t get too settled. Tectonic style shifts are afoot. True to his reputation, Ali refuses to hang in any genre locale long enough for the album to get pigeonholed. Erick Strong’s ‘Muffin’ puts it into a housey S.H.M. stride, before Aerofoil & E&G’s ‘Plank Effect’ and Marco V & Damian William’s ‘Essence’ re-point it down a churning, burning tech road.

Given that this is the man who gave us ‘Pandora’ – one of dance overlord Armin van Buuren’s top 10 tracks of 2010 - you better believe that some big room action isn’t far off. Norwegian sensation Orjan Nilsen sends the mercury rising with the pulsating ‘Atchoo’, while ‘Twist’ (in its arena-sized Rick Mitchells and Bas van Essen Remix form) catalyses with its attacking can’t-miss riff.

The second mix comes to life from the first beat of Protoculture’s formidable, ‘Liquid Logic’, with the South African’s latest stirring the prog-trance waters deep. Hot on its heels is ‘Flashback’ - Jochen Miller’s new single - which builds looping, whooping vocals and knowingly retrospective synths and riffs into the game. These overture a big trance 1-2-3, with Ali slickly dropping ‘Lifetime’ - Ben Nicky’s huge pads-&-chords melodic moment, Snatt & Vix’s cheekily-titled ‘Loco Motion’ and Ben Gold’s likewise highly descriptive ‘Colossal’ one on top of the other. With the release right at boiling point, taking his foot off the pedal is not an option. The dynamic orchestral majesty of Ralphie B’s ‘Epic Battle’, the heavy drumatics of ‘Viking’ (Orjan Nilsen again) and the tech rhythms, evocative chants and wildly climactic synths of Ali’s own ‘Elpis’ Calling’ combine to create a suitable meteoric conclusion.

High Contrast Recordings Presents Ali Wilson is a 31-track mix comp, purposefully and skillfully mixed to chip away at dance music’s stylistic borders. Lovers of Cox, Jules, Van Buuren, Prydz and a dozen other eclectic DJs will find plenty of audio to enjoy. Listen without prejudice.
