Various – 6 In The Mix Vol. 2

A 1991 Belgian compilation of popular songs by English artists and remixes of Afrika Bambaataa and De La Soul. It is an eclectic composition, but does provide minutes of dance floor filler in a pinch. The version of KLF’s Last Train To Trancentral is more arena than house, but I’m just happy to find anything by the KLF. Also notable for featuring a good track by Mental Cube, a.k.a Future Sound of London. The previous owner circled Nomad’s Just A Groove and wrote “Sample” on the cover, but I can’t understand why anyone would want to include any part of this song in a future production.

A lot of these tracks exemplify the Belgian New Beat, and this flavor of European Body Music is definitely more Jean Claude Van Damme than Arnold Schwartzenegger. It includes a ‘bonus megamix’, which is basically just parts of other songs on this records combined into one mix. One can imagine a DJ putting this record on, running from the booth to join the crowd in vigorous calisthenics and returning only to flip it to side 2.
