Although the next track up, Daphni’s Ye Ye, blends in well with the rest of the tracks it seems somehow misplaced in the mix. It's too linear to keep me in the groove. Acid Pauli’s intensive track may make choosing the next one difficult, but I would have expected something with bit more drive at this point, and I can’t escape from this feeling with the next two tracks as well. I found myself no longer even tapping my feet anymore before the mix ended. It’s bit like I crashed into an underground afterparty without having been to the party first. But maybe that’s what Crosstown Rebels and Damien Lazarus are about: delivering the unexpected. They don’t call themselves home of the electronic underground for nothing.
Despite the shortcoming mentioned above, I’ll keep this CD in my vault for sure – and not only because it’s an intriguing release introducing me to new artists who deserve further investigation. I’m sure Get Lost 4 will open up further the more I play it. Maybe the mix should have been longer to allow for a more balanced result. While I’m thinking just that, Mario & Vidis set me off to fly away into the blue and open sky of a dreamy movie with the final track Kashyyyk. Its instrumentation grabs me instantly. Nice afterparty to get lost in indeed - let’s slowdance till dawn.
7/10 - Peter Berger
