It's a mark of Derrick Carter's status that Defected have afforded him the luxury of a lucrative House Masters retrospective. Carter, of course, was one of the driving forces behind Chicago's "boompty" sound, a formidably energetic, swinging take on house that seems to have fallen from favour in recent years. House Masters: Derrick Carter offers a neat reminder of the qualities of the boompty sound, and more specifically Carter's own production highlights. While all the obvious cuts are present - "Where U At", "Square Dancin", Sound Patrol's superb "Trippin Among The Stars" - there are plenty of lesser-known gems, many featuring Carter's distinctive scat vocals.
