Compilation of the month
Mixed by Roger Sanchez and Todd Terry 'Best Of Times' (Hard Times)
In 1995, Hard Times released mix albums by Roger Sanchez and Todd Terry, so it seems fitting that it’s enlisted their considerable talent for this comp, released some 22 years later. There are great tracks from the DJs involved in addition to classics such as Sandy B’s ‘Make The World Go Round’ and Jon Cutler’s ‘It’s Yours’, which sit next to modern cuts from Dario D’Attis, Weiss and Harry Romero. Sanchez includes MK’s ‘Burning’ and a few S-Man productions, while Todd chooses plenty of his own releases. The label has made it through hard times; with releases as strong as this, it’ll be here for a long time to come.
