1. After some ok twelves it seems Zoovox have finally found their right form. Lo-fi house with leanings to italo & new wave in a fine balance that doesn't compromise on either rhythm or melody.
2. This type of distorted, highly compressed techno is really not my bag, there's just one killer track on here - Cestoda's Labyrinth - that is just the dirtiest thing one could hope for.
3. Simple Machines is the first truly modern Chicago house I've heard in today's soundscape, and Whistpers In The Dark is the cherry on top.
4. Thank you Tako, Abel & Jamie. Bringing music like this out of the shadows is the best part of the crate digging addiction.
5. When we refer to something as minimal it is usually not a good thing to my ears, but thankfully that's not what Dillon is going for at all. While the expression may be very reserved, the impression is powerful.
6. You'd think (at least I did) that edits of Turkish music would be a bit hard to keep interesting after that first wave. This proved me wrong completely. And that sleeve art really rocks.
7. My buddy Prins Emanuel does a rather good job of turning Kenneth Bagers sunshine balearics into cave-dwelling, cold-sweating tribal house.
8. Great concept, great sleeve art, great tracks.
9. Loving the freeform saxophone on Ocean City.
10. Might be very edit-makers dream to do one of these. This is one of the best, taking on the library album concept fully with a particular sound.
