Various Artists Dave Clarke: World Service 2
- Words: Janet Tzou
- Label: Resist
Opening a mix with a female chanting "I want to fuck you" might not be the most original idea in 2005. Then again, there‘s not much that the extremely versatile U.K. super-DJ/producer Dave Clarke hasn‘t done over his nearly 20-year DJ career. Although his disc, labeled "electro," doesn‘t actually offer electro until one-third of the way in, Clarke delivers a satisfying, big-room club experience throughout both of these high-energy sets. Old-school Clarke fans will appreciate the much stronger techno CD, with 4/4 faves like Joey Beltram and Heiko Laux whipping up Clarke‘s usual blistering tempo on the dancefloor.
