DEEP HOUSE

Review: Moodymann - Moodymann

Regardless, "Moodymann," like Moodymann himself, is a tightly conceived, totally self-aware product. It may be a fantasy, or a fever-dream, but its rare groove and cranky spirit are Detroit in a bottle.

Review: Lawrence - Films & Windows

Where modern genre tracks favour straightjacketed formulas and big hooks to capture attention, Lawrence's music shuns the approach, preferring an expressionist style of music with the artist at the centre.

Review: Oliver Deutschmann - Out of the Dark

For what it's worth, this album is an excellent showcase of Oliver's deep repertoire and what Vidab as a label has to offer. It has its hits and misses but fans shouldn't be disappointed. Also 'Out of the Dark - Remixes' is out now featuring three of my more favored tracks on the album. Check it out.

Review: Trus'me - Treat Me Right

With such a cinematic, curtain-rising ending to 'Treat Me Right', one feels as if one has been told a love story through Wolstencroft's music playing by the album's end. It might be the producer's most techno-sounding album to date but in any case, his remixers of late would have already indicated the artist's growth in that direction.

Review: Legowelt - The Paranormal Soul

Channelling otherworldly 'cosmic intuition', Legowelt expertly conjures up some very sweet vintage synth sounds with his collection of analog equipment. Not to be dismissed as a mere exercise in nostalgia - there are nods to early techno, house, acid and rave (or as Legowelt puts it, "90's weird English stuff from all over the place") - the end product is decidedly modern.

Review: Kris Wadsworth - Life and Death

'Life and Death' is an honest, entertaining piece of work put together by a man who knows exactly what he stands for. And when it comes to Kris Wadsworth, that's nothing short of impressive.

Review: Erdbeerschnitzel - Tender Leaf

Let's just leave pigeonholing to the folks at Beatport shall we. To do that with Keiling's work, would be a big mistake and a sad injustice in every sense. Just call it great music, soul food or mind fluid if you must. But it's something anyone who looks for beauty in life or in music should own.

Review: Basic Soul Unit - Motional Response

Being objective and drop dead honest when reviewing an artist album especially when its the output of a good friend, is difficult. But Mr Li, you've just made it easy.

Review: Jacob Korn - You & Me

With every listen, you might find something new to love - depending on the time of day, the mood you're in - it's difficult to pick just one favourite.
