Ministry of Sound's Clubbers Guide to Festivals
is a mixed three-disc set that emphasizes crossover dance hits from the latter half of the 2000s, though there are a couple older diversions that date as early as the mid-'90s. The mixing, as usual for Ministry of Sound, puts a priority on the selections over quick and slick transitions. Underworld
's "Born Slippy" and Basement Jaxx
's "Where's Your Head At" highlight the older tracks and have held up well, while the stylistic range of the relatively recent singles is exemplified by James Blake
's "CMYK" (scuffy dubstep) and Afrojack
's "Doing It Right" (zany electro-house).
