Various Shir Khan: Maximize!
- Words: Matt Earp
- Label: Exploited
- XLR8R Rating: 6/10
Here Berlin's DJ-about-town Shir Khan presents a whopping 44-track selection over two mix CDs, one carefully blended and one chopped together. Think of every possible form of house- or electro-based party music from Berlin mashed together and you're pretty much on target for Khan's sound. The first CD features his own blends, where synths buzz, robo-drums beat, and hands (or 808s) clap along to shouted choruses by folks like Edu K and The Go! Team. The second CD turns it up a bit with some great baile funk courtesy of Man Recordings and the twitch-house remixes of Switch and Jesse Rose. Nothing too crazy or groundbreaking here, but a solid party from start to finish.
