What an absolutley incredible album - from a selectas point of view Tribal Dance needs a vinyl release cos thats straight track attack ! Been spinning this album on the regular just lately, when i get home from work it really eases the pressures of day to day grind - thank heavens for uncle Fred :) much respect outta Australia peace and love.
I first heard of Black Jazz Consortium from the quad-LP 'Unity Kolabo' by Jus-Ed. He had a sick track called 'Other Music' as his Fred P. alias. 'Structure' doesn't disappoint as a deep house album. In fact, this one is far beyond any other deep house album outside of FXHE, Underground Quality, Drumpoet Community, et al. My standout tracks are "Deep Love", "Teapot Science", "Tribal Dance" and "What's Up With The Love". It's deep, minimal, bassy and it marks the next direction for deep house music: a real thinker's genre instead of overzealous divas, dissonant and superfluous brass instruments and an overabundance of bongos. Forget establishing with the old roots of house with 'Structure', as this one establishes new ones. Great to spin when it's late night and you wanna do the wind down. Sick, sick, sick. Now someone get Fred Peterkin to release this guy on vinyl.
