  • I agree with the other reviews in relation to the music. The vocal samples are distracting and a bit corny. That said, the project is very impressive overall. Fans of this release should check out The Automatics Group "Summer Mix."

  • vocal samples is what makes it special. words words words words

  • A pivotal mix awaits here - not just for the Balance series, but for mixing as an art altogether. Whereas a handful of predecessors have attempted the experimental style demonstrated in Joris Voorn's Balance 014, they have more-so been exercises and rehearsals of form; Balance 014 is masterfully executed and just so much more listenable. Isolating and referring to any individual track is, of course, not recommended, due to the patchwork nature of Voorn's mixing. If you visit each implemented track as a single, it becomes all the more fascinating to hear what Voorn has chosen and not to mix into his sonic stew. Lines of delineation between/among tracks blur, and looking at what track is currently playing and where feels pointless. Naturally, due to the extreme technical aspect of this type of mixing, 'transitions' are impeccable - or rather, they often cease to exist; rather than going from track A to B, it's more like one is experiencing ABC while XYZ wiggle their way in with a dash of MNOP. Rather than being an avant-garde form of mixing, this is more like the art of mixing finally achieving the penultimate level of what mixing is meant to be: an amalgamation of track selection whose sum is far greater than and is distinct from its parts. As for how the music actually 'sounds', there is a lot to be said, but let's allow the music to do most of the talking. Across the Mizuiro and Midori mixes, Voorn explores a plethora of soundscapes, genres and emotions. It's dizzying in a delightful way (though never overcrowded), whether it's how he introduces a new timbre/instrument, or how we cascade into another, perhaps darker dimension. Many of the best moments are either disarmingly charming or otherwise deeply subtle, my favorite stretch being between tracks 2-12 through 2-14.Time will be the judge of various mixes' significance, but I'm quite confident Balance 014 will be near the top."Yes?""Are you ready?""Yes."4.9/5 Stars

  • Flawless mixing and tune selection. In order to truly appreciate it, take some time and try to listen to a couple of these songs separately, unmixed, in the same order. It will really draw a map of this mix in front of you which will help you navigate whenever you embark on the journey which Balance 014 is.I still haven't found a better mix than this one.

  • Still 8 years later this mix comp sounds fresh and innovative. At the time I can't think of anyone doing a mix like this where the took parts from a number of different tracks and re-edited (or remixed if you want) to make each track. His Fuse album he mixed 2 songs together for each track on the album but didn't dissect tracks like on the Balance comp. This mix was ahead of its time and its aging very well indeed.

  • "At the time I can't think of anyone doing a mix like this where the took parts from a number of different tracks and re-edited (or remixed if you want) to make each track." Richie Hawtin - DE9 Transitions. He did it in 2005 ;)

  • Magda, Richie Hawtin, Wighnomy Bros., Martinez, Kiki, and Sasha all released mixes like this before this one came out.

  • It's a flawless compilation and gives me the creeps even after more than 5 years. If you love this double mix I recommend you Joris' RA.062 podcast which presented a similar melted mixing skills. (55 minutes, 26 tracks...)

  • Best Balance realise I've ever heard.

  • Without looking at the tracklisting, I had no idea the album was so heavily "remixed" and layered. It all merely sounded like seamless progressive house. It's mind blowing seeing how many tracks have been creatively stitched together. The music speaks for itself. There isn't a single uninteresting moment on either disc. It's more of a pounder than a builder; that is, it starts off fast and upbeat and keeps the tempo high throughout the mix. It doesn't flow particularly well but that's not the point of this mix. Those who will enjoy this most are those who have an appreciation for the technical proficiency being put on display. As to which mix I like better, I'm going to go against the grain and say that the second disc was my favorite. I'm not overly enthusiastic about the technical feat, I just look at the end product, the music itself. The Midori mix does a much better job of locking the listener into a groove and developing that sound.

  • Stellar album. Deep, grounded, progressive, groovy...

  • ..

  • I've listened to this double set at least 30 times now in my car since I got it last month. That in itself says something about the quality of this release. My focus is primarily on disc 1 because I find that one to be the most interesting. Balance 14 is a mix full of fleeting moments. The moments created are highly enjoyable but because the tracks are hyper-mixed you only have maybe 1 to 2 minutes to get into a certain sound before it changes. This is a strength of the mix and also part of its weakness. The mix constantly oscillates between beats and beatless ambient. A lot of accappellas introduce, fade, and reprise throughout which I enjoy. Some killer moments in this mix are the opening track where the foreign vocal (which I cannot understand) reverbs like a gamma ray in empty space, out into infinity, the section of "R U OK?" where the pitched down voice tells the other person "Here, Drink this-s-s-s-s-s-s", and my favorite "Dream On Dreamer". From an artistic standpoint, the mix is a patchwork, and 98% of the time the tracks mesh together perfectly. Because its a patchwork though, the sections that you might like, you'll find don't last long enough. I find myself rewinding to hear parts I like, which I guess you could say is good or bad depending on how you look at it. A five star mix, but even with that perfect rating I personally think it would have been better to let some of the tracks ride longer and not try to squeeze so much into it. Still a great mix and has earned a permanent spot in my car's cd changer. The last track on disc 2 is tragic. You've been warned.

  • The best mix i have ever heard.

  • This is by far the most engaging, rewarding, uplifting and seamlessly layered mix I've heard. The journey feels absolutely focused all the way through, the development of tracks gently gaining in sustained intensity, relentlessly inconspicuous positive energy with deeper, echoey and emotional shades.A review can't really do it justice - suffice it to say that the mix feels like a vast, beautiful garden, built from uplifting housey licks, kicks and motives, with light, refreshing spaces and toned down, lush corners, revealing new colours with every angle, with refreshing streams flowing through, bringing everything to life.It is largely an electronic mix, but softer, analogue layers make their unassuming appearance also, making this mix a superb contribution to any music collection.

  • The most interesting and appealing mix I have listened to for many years. I listened to both CD's all the way through twice and then focussed on CD1, listening to it every night for about a week. Now I'm giving the second CD a chance to grow on me and it is working. Some "sections" as they are called, rather than tracks, have clear transitions between the tracks used and others are a continuous though constantly evolving blend of the tracks. There are more moments which grab you on this mix than you can shake a stick at. Whilst almost perfect, there are a few things which don't float my boat, so if I'm to give a thorough review I need to mention them. About the last 13 minutes of CD1 is beatless which leaves me wishing a beat would kick back in right to the end. Section 8 of CD1 has an organ track in it which is remiscent of 1970's TV gameshows and, for me, doesn't work in the mix. Also, almost all the vocal tracks in the mix such as "R U OK" don't work for me. On CD2 "Respect Yourself" and the final track "Mare Frigoris" both seem out of place, even in a mix which manages to vary styles brilliantly. Still 5/5 as it's head and shoulders above everything else I've heard lately.

  • Joris Voorn's Balance 014, while of the same flavour as Hawtin's earlier DE9 mixes, is a completely new species. I think what is important to realize here is the extremely high quality of Voorn's composition for today's world, and this is in no way a slight against Hawtin's work—some of my all time favourite. Every new mix that uses the "build up from loops of existing tracks" formula seems to take a step forward. But with Balance 014, perhaps we have reached the zenith.What really amazes me is the first mix, Mizuiro. I think my girlfriend described it best when she said, "Just when you think you've reached the best part, you find another that is even better." There are several highlights, but for me things get extremely interesting when you hear the once tired vocal track from Ambivalent's "R U OK?" Seemingly played to death, I heard it here and thought, damn, that's fresh. And then it really takes off. Voorn put together the most beautiful melodic harmonies and vocals around here.To be truthful, I listened to the last four/five tracks at least twenty times in one day. I just can't get over what he did with tracks 10 and 11. And herein lies the real mastery of this mix. Amazed, I went through the whole composition track by track. If I thought I was already amazed, I was really in for a surprise. In DE9: Closer To The Edit, Hawtin used a large number of short loops. In DE9: Transitions, he expanded the length of each loop, playing some out at almost their full original length. Tracks fade out and reappear, sometimes only for seconds (the DVD is helpful for this), but they are ultimately all there, playing close to their original form. But with Balance 014, the tracks are mashed up beyond all recognition. Vocals are pitched all over the place and mated to the perfect tune, like a slick shifting four on a vintage car.I first gave this a thorough one-two listen, but never really found my interest peaked by the second mix. Having now listened to Mizuiro at length, I am sure I am missing something in Midori and will be spending the near future getting myself better acquainted. This very well could be the mix of the year.

  • It has been a few years now since Richie Hawtin dropped his first DE9 mix which represented a significant step forward for the art of DJing. Taking loops and samples from dozens of tracks and creating something entirely now from the result. You might say that Voorn has done the same but there is one big difference - variety. Whereas the tracks on Hawtin's mix were almost entirely culled from minimal Techno artists, Voorn takes in Basic Channel, warm IDM, Tech-House, Detroit, Club Techno, Ambient, Soulful House, Wonky and even appearances from Goldie and Radiohead. To take tracks from so many influences and to come up with something this cohesive and engaging was nothing short of genius. Each newly composed 'track' is typically made up of anything between 1 and 8 other tracks showing a dizzying amount of intricacy and intuitative understanding of the kind of elements that can work together in the right hands. He is not afraid to drop in beatless, string laden segments amongst the flowing, constantly evolving grooves. In fact, balance, this the right word for this mix becuase it covers so many different moods without any overstaying their welcome. Sure, this is a technical masterpiece but more importantly it's a musical one too.
