With many similarities to the sound of Basic Channel, the hypnotic dub-esque rhythms of "Wavetable No. 9" make it the strongest track on the record. The B-side changes things up entirely, progressing into deep house territory; the appropriate comparison this time is Theo Parrish. Depends on your inclinations, but I'm convinced the real gem is to be found on the A-side.

The sounds the Mike has created & collected are true representation of DEEP, no matter if you making somthing bangin or smooth these sounds will make your productions sound better. The tones are beautiful & lush you will now realize why you've enjoyed his music for so long. In a perfect world we should see a full release of Mr. Huckaby's sound if he should so willing to let us in further into the Deep Transportation/Synth vaults! If we should be so lucky!

Mike Huckaby is the only person skillfull enough to make a sample cd that truely represents Deep House. This sample cd is now considered a cult classic for Deep House production. Many of the trax that you hear today contain sounds from this sample cd. This sample cd is an important achievement in the history of Detroit Electronic Music.

I have to say, that just the lush pad sounds alone will have you creating super-deep tracks in no time. I mean as soon as i loaded up one of the sounds in the sampler, and struck a key i was instantly motivated to created a beautiful tune that took my breathe away. These special collections will provide you with an across the board selection of house flavoured elements for use in your own productions, and if your're seriouly into deep house music you can't go wrong.

An amazing package here from the criminally overlooked Mike Huckaby.
The tunes themselves are awesome, the a-side alone is a seriously deep and cavernous track, filtered pads alongside solid kicks combined with a lush bassline make a sick groove, with added delays creating depth in spades. The flip's head in a deep house direction with more melody and keys and showing the versatility of both producer and instrument.
Rest assured it's now permanently entrenched in my 'classic' play pile.
The sample CD is also superbly crafted and packaged, with an introductory narrated video and the samples themselves organized into folders for ease of use.
Being a Waldorf user too, i can hear the depth of programming he's put into the sounds, and the time well spent learning the massive potential of the Wave.
Any budding producer of deep music would do well to obtain this release, for both the music and the samples.
Huckaby has always been the man to watch for those who have good ears, and here he delivers some of his trade secrets of deep synthesis.
