How unexpected is Dave Angel's TALES OF THE UNEXPECTED? Well, it's chock full of gorgeous tech-house, so that's not unexpected. Deep grooves and Detroitian melodies? Also expected. The long, jazz-ambient start of "Arabian Nights"? OK, that's unexpected. But it's a perfect intro (fear not, the beat eventually comes in, as expected). Indeed, it's the jazz influence that speaks the loudest, from the atmospheric breaks on "Timeless" to the vocal utterances set to a house thump on "Scatman." But, just in case, he goes back to solid techno with "Over Here" and "It's Too Hot in Here" and smoother Detroit tones with "Bump." Or, you could go with the percussive frenzy of "Be Bop" or martial drumming on "Rudiments." But the mellow grooves of "D.O.B." suit me better, I think. This, however, is not entirely unexpected.
