Tracklist:

1) Melicia – Running Out Of Time 6’45
2) Xerox – Out Of The Blue 5’19
3) Intergalactic – The Mushroom 6’11
4) Xerox & Illumination – Marley On Acid 5’21
5) Xerox & Illumination – Domination 5’57
6) Xerox – Frequency Drive (Hujaboy remix)6’26
7) Spectrum – The World 6’04
8) Maskalin – Time Reverse 6’02
9) Xerox – There Is Another 6’41
10) Maskalin – High Fusion 6’37

Compiled & mixed by Xerox, '7 Eleven' gathers energic & melodic full on.

Melicia’s music is very close to Astrix one, indeed Running Out Of Time sounds like a Astrix vs Xerox production, i mean in one hand same tones , sounds, build up & fx as Astrix & in the other hand same raving energy explosive as Xerox. Despite all this, the track is good & i particurlarly appreciate his adrenalistic build up.

Out Of The Blue, is a very good track for a solo Xerox production, normally i find him weaker when he’s alone.
The melody way playing reminds me a bit of Karina (remix) old anthem hit from Xerox & Freeman. This is typically what i was expecting from Xerox to do in his last album ‘Frequency Drive’ and what unfortunatly he didn’t deliver. So, i’m very happy with this one.

The Mushroom from Intergalactic, is a groovy full on stuff for me, something alike to The Inner Light album of Sesto Sento but more pumping & faster tempo.

Then comes Marley On Acid already released on Israliens 4, it's the only track re-released as all the other are first released.

Second collaboartion with Illumination , Domination has got the same trademarks like Marley On Acid nevertheless results more agressive with some few high sharpy sounds but less impresive.

This remix of Frequency Drive by Hujaboy, confirms his new musical way :always dark but more full on with mainly strident metallic tones & soft percussions. If like me, you enjoyed 27 AM, you ‘ll be fond of this remix.

It’s time for the Spectrum trax, a typical crappy morning full on, always the same shit (same syth line & tones & harmonies heard one million times before in their previous productions) . Don’t understand what it does in this compilation, it’s the big error of the tracklist.

Hopefully, Maskalin (Xerox & Izik Benisty) wakes up thigs with some funny country guitar riffs& also some cool fun rythmic gimmicks, the whole into a smashing atmosphere. The break is quite surprising with a very hard jerky fluffy synth line & comes back a bit later on.

Second solo Xerox stuff is called There Is Another, there’s a bouncing bassline, some electric guitar riffs & later some other grinding ones (to be exact the guitar is moaning the melody) & metallic tones, the whole in a boisterous feeling. Once again, this kinda production is much better than the solo tracks from his Frequency Drive album.

Last but least, second Maskalin appearance on the cd with High Fusion, it’s another nice energic adrenalistic & fast way playing melody, typical Xerox production would i say.

Only 2 black points, first one it's a mixed compilation, second one the presence of the Spectrum trax, indeed the compilation should have been called ‘Xerox & Friends’ as he’s involved in 7 tracks over 10 instead of 7 Eleven .


Highlights by order: 2,8,6
Other nice ones by order :1,9,3,10
Bad one :7

Mark :8/10
(i would have given 8,5 for the same tracklist with non-mixed tracks & full lenght time version)

Defintively , the unexpected good surprise of this summer.

...hmm...i like it...mixed (...the ones love it, the other not...=(-; ), and full power all the time (...maybe a bit too much ?! )

overall the tracks sounds more or less the same, but nice done.

i found this cd sound a bit outdated... the xerox tracks, is he back to his 1998 style with freeman???

this cd is not so good, the second xerox album (freestyle) was the best he ever made!

this album is the worst compilation HOMmega released this year.

Boring?! it'a a killer,well not so killer cause it's mixed but great music selection. Melicia - Running out of time is still one of my favourite morning tunes from the last couple of years. 6.5/10 like this and 8/10 if it wasn't mixed.           Opus Iridium

no!! mixed cd's are awful!!!

i like cd's like BLT - God is Love

it's not mixed, but the tracks are still connected somehow, this is the connection between tracks that should be made in every album in my opinion!           u can find "Anything U Want" using the search...

A mixed CD is a a work of a DJ trying to give you a 70-80 minutes journey representing his DJs skills and abilities at telling a musical story. Or at list that is what it should be...

Maybe you should try to listen to it like that Hod, before throwing out such a generalizing statement. Or maybe you've just still need to hear a good mixed CD? Not an easy task these days for sure. Some of my best musical adventures were with mixed CDs (trancentral 5 being one of the best examples...)

Anyway, I'm sure there's a thread about it in the trance section, ppl- or you can start one.

Please back to the topic.

i listened to it, and i didn't like the mix work.. same about the tracks... it looks like xerox is going backwards, towards his very old style with freeman..

spectrum track, don't u agree it's the typcal crapty morning full on?
it's nothing special!
the only track i liked a bit is the melicia one, which isn't so special but good for the floor.           u can find "Anything U Want" using the search...
