It's been three years now since Ante Perry introduced not only himself to a wider audience with the first issue of "Flashing Disco Sounds" but also a new concept, a new format to the world of music which can be described as intertwined artist album / DJ-mix compilation, showcasing both DJ- and production skills at the same time. And this is what "Flashing Disco Sounds II" - scheduled for June 6th - is doing again, a sequel with a lust for electroid glitz, discoid vibes and classic House stabs when it comes to the mix featuring the likes of Spirit Catcher, David August, Kölsch or even a - odd and quite soulless - rework of Ultra Nate's uber-hit "Free" or Osunlade's anthemic "Pride" remixed by Johnny D. Talking the album, which is CD2 of this double package, there are eleven full length tracks to be found here, five of them collaborations with either Kolombo - including their joint forces and well uplifting remix of Jennifer Rostock's "Du Willst Mir An Die Wäsche" - or Mr. Perry's long time production partners Tube & Berger, all of them perfectly suited DJ-tools for his very own sets, able to keep the crowd moving or lead them to another peak or even home - see "God's Gift" as an example for a very nice closing track. And this is what makes Ante Perry somewhat special from and more accessible than others - listen to his sets and you know exactly what kind of music he produces, listen to his music and you know what to expect from his DJ-sets. No surprises, no artsy experimentalism.
