Martin Solveig hit the scene with SUR LA TERRE, an album of pure disco house that kicks off with the funk bass and groove of "Rocking Music." "I'm A Good Man" leans more in a blues direction with the vocals to strong effect, while "Madan" brings in the African chorus, but "Destiny" takes Solveig back to his disco, though with the African roots still audible. Even the slower groove of "Burning Ethnic (Wake Up Mix)" carries some Afro-flavor. But when the Afro-torch burns bright, as on "Linda (MS Nasty Remix)," it's lovely to behold. The deeper house of "Someday" or the Chicago-tinged piano chords of "You Are My Friend" offer a delicacy that also stands out. Indeed, "Sur La Terre" closes the album with a slice of sunny downtempo warmth, beamed directly from Brazil. On the disc of remixes, "Heartbeat" goes straight and unabashedly for the club, while Warren Clarke makes "Rocking Music" into a bongo frenzy. Mousse T takes a gospel-breaks approach to "I'm A Good Man," and Kenny Dope shoots "Linda" into some cosmic disco. But it's DJ Gregory's mix of "Someday" that stands out; an already-great track gets a minimal rub. This album certainly helps you keep your feet on the ground.

I don't really like a of of house stuff, but I bought this on a whim at the time & I have to say that it still stands up quite well. A lot deeper than his more recent big roomy stuff.
