    Melchior Productions tries to get to THE MEANING of it all, and, for the most part, that means micro-house, spread over two CD of new and older material. On the main album, "Que Pasa" starts quietly, while "Got Me" has a nice Herbert-like wobble to its house movements. "The Party" stays pretty subdued, but "Que Foi" starts to bring up the energy as "Searching" gets serious about its blipping. If there's a weakness to these tracks, however, it's that they quickly become repetitive without the internal variations that make Herbert or Akufen so exciting. But the more thoughtful tones of "Over The Rise" are a step in the right direction, as is the combination of lighter tones and deeper bass on "...Love Was." The upbeat "Everyone's A Winner" and the long drive of "It's Coming" also help. The second disc, a retrospective of Melchior's works and collaborations from his label, Aspect Music, follows pretty much the same path, as "Forever Love" goes abstract with the vocal snippets, while the "F. Macmillan Remix" of the same track gets funkier. The swift 'Pluto Rising" has an appealing retro feel, and the bass-and-space of "Get Down" keep the party going. For a change of pace, though, "The Prayer" brings in a mysterious, ambient feel before the beat gallops in and out of the track. "Meltdown" gets more jittery, before the long "Law Of Grace" shifts from melodic to thumping and then back again. A nice overall package.

      The one´s who might look to get the "Melchior Productions Presents Aspect Music Retrospective" on vinyl can find it under this release.
      (Not all of the tracks from this cd release are there, but the majority) Glorious swinging micro house! Quite exceptional for this genre.
