Various Artists One Step Ahead 3
- Words: Peter Nicholson
- Label: Straight Ahead
Starting with the stately strings of Magic Number's It's a "Sad Sad World" and ending with the burbling electronics of Clyde feat. Capitol A's "Serve It Up!" this mix by Alex Dallas and Domenico Ferrari covers quite a bit of future soul territory. But, man is the journey smooth, featuring excellent programming and skillful mixes. Dallas & Ferrari pick more relaxed, R&B-flavored versions of songs that have been big on broken beat dancefloors (Focus' "Havin' Fun" and "Thinkin' About" by Bakura) alongside quirkier numbers like KV5's accordion and sub-bass stormer "You Know This," keeping this mix warm and laid-back, but full of funky surprises.
