Moody: "Anotha Black Sunday"

Once again, the draw here isn’t the title track. “Desire” makes this EP essential.

Omar-S: Fabric 45

This mix is a great sampler of Omar-S’ prolific output. It should be sub-titled “Condensed and Compressed.”

This is one 12-inch that reinforces the idea house and techno are two sides of the same coin.

Jay Denham: The Truth

I have to give props to Denham for originality, because this is one weird album. The title track, written and co-produced with Anthony “Shake” Shakir is pure house with a woman singing atonally and Denham speaking pretentiously over synth strings and bleating bass. A little goes a long way.

Robert Hood: Fabric 39

It’s been a while since I’ve reviewed a DJ mix. Robert Hood should need no introduction. He collaborated with Mike Banks and Jeff Mills on the first Underground Resistance and Axis releases, then founded M-Plant in 1994 to focus on minimal techno. Fourteen years later, minimalism is finally mainstream in club-land.

Theo Parrish: Sound Sculptures Volume 1

There’s no doubt this double CD is a major work and an intense listen. Theo Parrish’s deep house tracks range from sweet vocals and soulful instrumentals to gritty, repetitive loops.
