I love this album and find most of Redshape's tracks enjoyable to listen to at home and in the club and find it hard to believe lovers of techno and well crafted electronic music not feeling this album. The first track that brought Redshape to my attention was the excellent 2084 12", I admit not everything he has produced has impressed me but he is definately one of the most talented techno producers out there at the moment. No this album is not groundbreaking but it does have original flourishes in there. I find this album a great mix of the Detroit and Berlin techno sound and love the heavy analogue feel of it, also the mastering is amazing. I bought a hell of a lot of techno 12's and albums on vinyl in 2009 and this is one of a few that I go back to again and again.

Every single positive review of this album must be from people that are production fanatics that love deep techno when all it consists of is a funky rhythm and some "spacy pads".

There's not a single track on here with anything resembling a vaguely memorable melody or "hook". Globe comes close with an infectious shuffled rhythm, there's also a mildly effective synth riff in the last third of "Seduce Me", but this is otherwise pad-chord and stab-infested, stripped-down minimal "deep techno". It will work in a club, but it ruthlessly sucks anywhere else. Or maybe it's supposed to make you fall alseep? Or maybe it's supposed to "get your production wang on".

I await the endless "not helpful" replies, but despite liking a lot of Delsin material, this does nothing for me and I am honestly stupefied by the ratings and reviews. Where's the next Vince Watson album? Or Quince? Vince and Bram are both more than capable of great production, great rhythms, AND memorable arps, leads, 303s whatever. There is NONE of that on The Dance Paradox except for big kicks and basses. If that's all you need, buy now!
