Reviews:

Megamixes are almost never very interesting, as they mostly consist of DJs placing their own interpretive tastes and ideas over those of the artists being mixed, but as the subtitle indicates, DJ Krush's Holonic: The Self Megamix is actually more of a greatest-hits collection than a traditional Megamix. Taking tracks (or bits and pieces thereof) from all of his previous albums, from 1994's Strictly Turntabilzed through 1997's Milight, DJ Krush turns these fragments into a cohesive, free-flowing whole. The album is heaviest on tracks and samples from Milight, even including some of the spoken-word segments from that album, but Holonic has a much brighter and less-heavy vibe than that doomy, almost-apocalyptic album. DJ Krush's music could never be called cheerful -- his jazzy, minor-key grooves and atmospheric use of found sound and unidentifiable samples is just too dark and moody -- but Holonic has a playful quality that's largely been missing from his work since the days of Strictly Turntabilzed. Neither a traditional greatest hits nor the average Megamix, Holonic is nevertheless an excellent introduction to DJ Krush's work. ~ Stewart Mason, All Music Guide
