Choice - A Collection of Classics is a series of DJ mix albums, mixed by various artists for the independent record label Azuli Records.



The Azuli Choice - A Collection of Classics compilation series are retrospective compilation albums selected by renowned DJs. Contributors are invited to unearth rarities and forgotten gems from their record collections, demonstrating their influences but often drawing on styles outside those which they would normally play in a club set; they usually also provide detailed liner notes explaining their musical selections. The first DJ to contribute was Frankie Knuckles in 2000. Other DJs who have contributed to the series so far include: Danny Tenaglia, Tony Humphries, Francois K, X-Press 2, Jeff Mills , John Digweed and Roger Sanchez.

In most cases, the Choice compilations are mixed; however the eclectic nature of the music chosen means that beat-mixing is not always possible or appropriate. For this reason, some of the albums have been loosely segued together, while others, such as that by Francois K, remain completely unmixed.

Azuli records' boss Dave Piccioni has said that while the Choice compilations make no money and are difficult to put together due to licensing issues, they are also among the releases of which he is the most proud.
