V/A - Pete Tong Presents Wonderland 09 (MOS)

As a Radio 1 DJ, Tong has one of the most distinctive voices in dance music, but musically he is a chameleon. Therefore, this compilation represents the sort of house and techno that is currently in vogue, featuring new stars and long-time producers. To be fair, it features its fair share of excellent tracks, alongside a few rather bland efforts. Disc one is the synthier of the two and features winners such as Steve Angello’s pointed Isabel and Pryda’s heartwarming Melo. Disc two is a little less melodious and slightly more jacking, where peaks include Michel Cleis feat. Toto La Momposina’s flute driven La Mezcla and House Of House’s anthemic Rushing To Paradise. This compilation show that Tong still has his finger on the pulse. Wonderland is the name of Pete Tong’s current weekly Ibizan soiree.
