Various Artists Dirt Crew Presents: Collection 01
- Words: Jennifer Marston
- Label: Dirt Crew
Berlin's Dirt Crew loudly proclaims the gospel of dance on its second-year-anniversary compilation, where two discs of the label's best singles and new cuts further convince listeners these guys are worth paying attention to. Disc One showcases Dirt Crew artists at their finest and dirtiest, be it Dominik Eulberg remixing the dancefloor weapon "Largo" or rumbling tech-house tracks from the likes of Drum Cult and 2020 Soundsystem. Disc Two wanders into the moodier, even more minimal territory of Dirt Crew sub-label Players Paradise; newcomers like Mash and Thughfucker deliver tightly arranged house compositions that quietly compliment Disc One's heavier numbers. With nary a weak track on either disc, it's likely the crew will soon hold the undivided attention of minimal techno fans around the globe-and maybe even get them to dance.
