Innercity is ID&T's annual 60,000-strong Amsterdam dance festival, a sanctioned quasi-rave environment for fans of hard house, techno, 2-step, and English and European trance. Mostly trance, though, as suggested by their 2001 souvenir package. Offering both CD and DVD material on one disc, Innercity 2001 culled together the year's highlights into one 75-minute mix of fluctuating tech-trance with genuinely interesting names like Junior Sanchez, X-Press 2, Fluke, Green Velvet, Mauro Picotto, and Lisa Loud. The compiled effect was generally enjoyable but played itself pretty straight, which seemed to undermine the implied free expression of the event.
