posted a review of Jackson Lee - Empire State EP. 25 days ago
I was glad to see this release from Jackson Lee, which I think is his first release since 2017. "Some Early Jazz" is so well done; it samples the vocal from my favourite Diana Ross record, "Upside Down". Gorgeous synth and drum work to boot. Jackson ... See full review

I've been spending a lot of time with this one. "The People" is the long (pushing 10 minutes), super deep cut with a brief spoken word sample. Be patient with it. "Set My People Free" brings the energy up a bit and introduces a funky flute and drums. ... See full review

Quite boring and uninspired house music. I would not play any of these. But I'll bang the door down for a Derrick Carter DJ set.

Kevin Yost's mix of "I Feel Good Things For You" is one of the best tracks he ever made. Plucked by Harry The Bastard for Club H Volume 1.

Still my favorite Proper Trax record. Three freaky but banging groovy techno cuts from Papa Proper himself.
posted a comment on Gunnar Haslam - Margareten EP. 3 months ago
I agree with aidonnbrandon. "Margareten" is "Overcomplete" (from Gunnar's Naïf record) flipped somewhat on its head and layered with a nice pad. So that naturally brought me here to start. "Replacement" is beautiful ambient techno with that sound of the ... See full review

"Sierra Leone" is the sax jam with some whistles and interesting tribal-sounding percussion. "Love Love Love" is a premiere vocal cut, but the strings are awesome and the kickdrum is massive. House music at its finest. Absolutely stunning record.

Twenty-one years later and this record still slaps. Am I the only one that likes "Aztlan" more than "DayStar Rising"? Difficult to choose a favorite though, because they are both awesome. Tribal techno does not get much better than this. This record is a ... See full review

I finally got sides A/B. Both tracks on side B barely plays at all, but it just has light scratches. I am dumbfounded. :(

What's not to like? I absolutely LOVE the New Horizon edit; turns the original up to 11. The others are great too. Brilliant work here.

A is fairly boring. B is slightly more interesting. Both are groovy deep house tracks. Nothing special here. Also, lots of wasted space on the disc. They should have put at least one more track on here.
posted a comment on Hank Crawford - Midnight Ramble. 5 months ago
There is nothing interesting about this album. The players all perform well and its not a bad listen, but there is nothing cutting edge, nothing grabbing me at all. By 1983 this style of jazz had been done ad nauseam for three decades.
posted a comment on D. Tiffany - V2M. 5 months ago
Absolutely incredible record. All four tracks are five stars. "The Bass Between Us" might be the most underdog track for a lot of people, but focused listening reveals its complexity, lushness, and stunning beauty. Without a doubt one of my favorite ... See full review

"Horizons" is a collection of many influences and complex sounds that straddles the line between house and techno. "Clockwork" is a melodic techno piece with a slight jazz influence and a pinch of acid. Beautiful. "Clouded Remorse" is a more ... See full review

"African Indigenous Rhythms" is a bit of a lofty title for a 12" EP like the previous person said, but Ron Trent delivers with these two very deep and spiritual house cuts.
posted a comment on Gemini Jazz - Storyteller. 5 months ago
Phenomenal record. "StÔryteller" is the deep house one and the B-side is new-age jazz. I hope there is much more to come from Gemini Jazz.

I have about half of this catalog. It's all pretty deep, sometimes dubby and weird, but it always slaps. I would love to hear more from the label and those involved. Unfortunately Ben Jenkins and Jackson Lee seem to have gone dark. Will Azada stopped ... See full review

Brilliant indeed, but this is not deep house or tech house. This is raw midwest techno at its finest.
posted a review of Panoptica - 04/04. 6 months ago
"Y Ahora" is a straightforward but well-done minimal house/techno track. "Esquirla (Panoptica Mix)" has a slightly off-kilter melody sitting over the kick drum, which distorts the sense of time a bit, but it's still very mixable. Solid little deep, funky ... See full review

The B-side goes hard indeed. The A-side is a bit weak. Considering that, an extra track or two on this record would have gone a long way. There is plenty of plastic to spare. Worth a bargain buy, but otherwise pass.

The chord stabs remind me of the ... See full review

I've been tracking this record down for about four years and I finally have it. The 54 dub is rare, appearing on only a few of the plates, and it's the obvious winner of the bunch. Be careful which version you are buying. It's some of their best work. ... See full review

More like Milehigh deep and dubby techno with house influences. This record is excellent. I've only heard one other MHH record (001 by ILK), but what I've heard is nothing short of amazing. Underrated crew right here. I like to think that these guys were ... See full review

This is a beautiful record. "Needless" might be my favorite tune of the three. "Pulsez" is a chuggy peak-time bit, while side B is the deep and jazzy good stuff.
