As another year comes to an end, with it we are treated to a number of compilation abums from the dance industry labels, big and small.
Those familiar with my listening habits and loyalties should know I’m quite impartial to a certain “angelic” label from the UK – Fierce Angel. When I learned of their latest release “The Collection II”, I was naturally inclined to give it a thorough listen along with the obligatory review.
The first five tracks are real homage to the French disco house genre. Personal favourites include The Supermen Lovers (remember them?) with their catchy number “C’est Bon” and Louis La Roche – Touch Wood.
Following the French warmup, we are quickly transported to the glamorous UK club scene with a selection of camp disco tracks. Tracks from Bimbo Jones, Riff & Rays and other producers certainly set the tone that seems to have become Fierce Angels’ signature sound. I get images conjuring up of flamboyant disco queens, seasoned extrovert dancers, glam-glam-glam!
The mood swiftly changes with the second collection of tracks, taking a deeper journey into house and dance music. With tracks from Fierce Angel favourites such as Fac 15, Kaskade and Soraya Vivian, you’re in for a treat of twisted, electro vibes reminiscent of the club nights. Whilst the vibe of this isn’t to my personal tastes, it certainly ticks the boxes for the masses, possibly leaning towards the current trends in commercial dance music. If you’re that way inclined, it’s definitely worth checking out.
Fierce Angel – The Collection II is now available to buy from the following stores:
