mixed by Goodwill and John Course :: released November 04 2007
There's only one way that the electro-loving club kids come to realise that a new year is just around the corner, and that's when they see the latest instalment of Ministry of Sound Annual hits the shelves. Heralding a new year of good times & more importantly, fantastic new music, the Annual delivers only the very hottest tracks of the moment, along with the finest future smash hits; the 2008 Annual is no exception.
Assuming mixing duties for this edition is none other than Ministry's own master of the Melbourne Militia, Mr John Course, this year joined by the funniest man in dance - Goodwill. After mixing our most successful Clubbers Guide earlier this year, producing a string of club hits & hosting the Ministry of Sound Radio show ' it's been a big year for our Will!
Coursey pumps it up on Disc One with a slew of #1 ARIA club chart hits including the unstoppable @Fedde Le Grand@ / @Ida Corr@ collaboration 'Let Me Think About It', New York juggernaut @Armand Van Helden@'s huge house hit 'I Want Your Soul', the gimmicky goodness of @Samim@ 'Heater', @The Potbelleez@ 'Don't Hold Back' and of course not forgetting @The Chemical Brothers@ 'Salmon Dance.'
Goodwill takes the reigns for Disc 2, and with a big giddeyup things head up a notch, with Hard-Fi 'Suburban Knights' and @Peter Gelderbloms@' massive rework of the @Red Hot Chilli Peppers@ 'Waiting For.' Will's disc also showcases an amazing breed of Aussie talent - with some fabulous electro/indie hits from @PNAU@, @Sneaky Sound System@, @Bag Raiders@, @The Aston Shuffle@, @Klaus Hill@, @Tommy Trash@, @Attack Attack@ and the @Midnight Juggernauts@.
The album will be backed up by the most exciting Annual Tour to date, with Ministry pumping it up with 2 standalone parties: the all night warehouse party in Sydney & all day outdoor festival in Perth! These 2 events are set to feature some of the hottest talent around including @Armand Van Helden@, @Fedde Le Grand@, @Sneaky Sound System@, @Trentemoller Live@ & @Booka@ @Shade Live@ + many more. And all this is in addition to an extensive national tour by both John & Will throughout November & December.
