Since its inception 4 years ago, the Exhibition series has always garnered buckets loads of love from clubbers and dance music fans, with each instalment sound-tracking the labels (Lost Language, Solaris, Primal) hits and rarities of the year, alongside specially commissioned remixes of classic Hooj moments. Exhibition 4’s highlights include fresh cuts from Derek Howell, Luminary and Ignas brand new remix of 16B’s ‘Escape’, all lovingly compiled and mixed by Jay Burnett & Episodic.
Jay Burnett takes control of Disc 1, starting with an atmospheric intro from label favourite Pete Martin in the form of ‘1984’, before gliding into Ignas’ take on ‘Escape’, a track that has already gained massive plays from Deep Dish & Nick Warren.
Other highlights include the almighty Shingo ‘We Are Moving’ and Shiloh & Micah’s Shatterfist Remix of Gill Norris’ ‘Forme’.
Disc 1 draws to a close with the shimmering take on ‘Sacred Cycles’ by Derek Howell. A worthy remix of a bonafide classic, and an emotive finish to the disc.
Disc 2 is in the capable hands of label newcomers, Episodic. Fresh from their debut, Nothing This Day, which features on Primal and pretty much every Tiesto set over the last two months.
The mix kicks off with a track called ‘Heatsink’ from label hero Probspot, quickly followed by the Mathew Dekay mix of Leama & Moors ‘Everything Matters’, a track which has seen strong support from Tiesto, Armin, Dekay, Schulz and Oakenfold.
The previously unreleased Chocolate Uncle mix of The Hooj classic, ‘Everytime’, is featured as is rising star Nikola Gala’s track ‘One Way’, an energetic workout of trippy vocals, dirty basslines and atmospherics.
The Cats & Sieja mix of Leama & Moors ‘Waiting’ is a brilliantly filthy take on the track and Finnish wonderboys U&K round things off with some Tampere inspired breaks.
