James Holden is a former prodigy kid of the British Trance scene who break through first at the tender age of 18 with the huge Horizons hit that was played to death and was licensed later to many compilations and mix sets including Dave Seaman's Global Underground album. Holden At The Controls has definitely redefined what a DJ set is & has set the bar very high. Since the release in March '06, this has been my most frequently listened to CDs in my collection of DJ sets ever.

Holden actually faces something of a tough sell with 'At the Controls'. For those fond of his progressive past, or looking for another mix similar to his Balance mix, this may be somewhat disappointing. Similarly, fans of techno may not be happy, expecting something directed at the dancefloor after looking at the tracklist. However, for those who want a mixed compilation of tracks and songs for home listening, or as a soundtrack to their next Friday night knees-up, 'At the Controls' is the best mix(ed) tape you’ve never made.

Track 8 is not mentioned on the back tracklist, instead it lists 9 twice, with the first incorrectly labeled as Harmonia - Watussi and the second correctly labeled as Holden - 10101. The correct track for 8, Midi Miliz - Trace Function, is correctly labeled in the booklet.

The CD has four different covers that could be changed by folding the inlay sheet back to the preferred selection.

Devestating and deep mix from one of the forerunners of newbreed digital dj's, Mr. James Holden. Ableton Live is amazing software and especially in the right hands and here it is used to perfection to mix some very sublime tracks with techno and minimal interspersed with neo-folk and ambient. This is a lay on your floor with the headphones on and drift away kind of mix that is stunningly original. It is frankly amazing that Mr. Holden is able to meld so many tracks together from such different genre's and retain a sound consistent with that of a completed album. It is the rare mix where an artist or DJ can so completely disappear in the music of choice and this is the finest example of that I've heard.
That's one of the best interpretations I've ever read. Definitely an experimental mix that was executed so well. I couldn't want anything more or less.
