Minimal/Tech House
  1. Dream Express
  2. Tachyon
Review: A Chicago native, Parrish Adams aka Intrinsic, provides two dubbed out minimal tunes on this artist's debut 12" single. "Dream Express" starts off with a sparse bass lick and strings drowning in reverb and delay effects. A live drum sample supports the track with little variation, but it works. Repeating a very infectious groove that leaves you wanting more of the deep! On the flip is "Tachyon", a percussive number that beats a little like "Percussion Electrique" by Dwarf. The difference here is that the bass lick and synth stab gives it a fuller sound. Dancefloor ready!

  1. Since The Accident (original mix)
  2. Since The Accident (bonus beat)
  3. Descending
  4. Since The Accident (Specter mix)
Review: Continuing a sterling run of form of late, Steven Tang's OMT moniker has been testing the fringes of classically rooted house and techno with a style that comes on somewhat malevolent without ever needing to resort to aggression. Indeed the original mix of "Since The Accident" is overtly creepy with its atonal acid lines and horror film strings, but the beats fall with a clean precision and there's not a touch of overdrive or unnecessary volume in sight. The bonus beats allow further clarity on this idea as well, while Specter's mix seems intent on opiating the entire jam into a mellifluous blur of strangeness. "Descending" is less uneasy in its demeanour, but still occupies an otherworldly space thus making it a worthy addition to the EP.

Deep House
  1. Incite (Another mix)
  2. Slight
  3. Incite (Dubbyman remix)
Review: Although Steven Tang's Obsolete Music Technology alias has been going since 2007, it's been the past two years where things have started to take off, in fact, more-so than the productions of his namesake.. This latest EP on Tang's own Emphasis label continues OMT's scuffed take on house that the Chicagoan has long pushed. "Insight (Another Mix)" sounds like something that would fit perfectly in a Tama Sumo DJ set or Steffi Panorama Bar mix CD, while sharing the A-side is a moist sounding "Slight", a track that invokes the mental imagery of sped-up time lapses of blooming flowers you see in a nature documentaries. The EP's emphasis (excuse the pun) on sound design makes way for the prominent use of keys (and additional vocals) Dubbyman employs in his remix to "Incite". What a pleasant EP this is.

Mmmmmusic (12")
Cat: EMP 011. Rel: 02 Feb 12
  1. Mmmmmusic
  2. Mmmmmusic (reprise)
  3. Distance
  4. Mmmmmusic (Chicago Skyway Pay Toll mix)
Review: ** Repress for the Tang fans ** Obsolete Music Technology aka Steven Tang has had another great year, nurturing his personal take on Chicago-filtered house music. "Mmmmmusic" is just sublime, taking us on a journey through rugged, drum machine terrains, swaying pads and crafty vocals; whilst the reprise version unearths those synths to create a majestic soundscape which develops into a semi-groove thanks to its smart melodies. Over to the B-side, "Distance" is as deep as one can go, aligning sharp slabs of percussion to more tranquil pads and woozy synth chimes. We even get a boisterous Chicago Skyway refix of the title track, rendering almost unrecognisable thanks to a truly mesmerising bundle of hi-hats and toms. Beautiful.

  2. Escaping Thoughts (6:09)
  3. Verged (Obsolete mix) (7:09)
  4. Infinitesimal (5:38)
Review: Surprisingly, this is Steven Tang's first 12" in some two years, and marks his first appearance on Emphasis Recordings (an imprint he founded way back in 1998) since 2011. Happily, it was worth the wait, because Infintesimal is amongst the Chicagoan's best worth to date. Heavily influenced by vintage Detroit techno, its' four tracks take in rolling creepiness ("Approaching Theory"), shimmering blends of Larry Heard style deep house and Motor City futurism ("Escaping Thoughts"), deep and spacey dancefloor bliss ("Verged (Obsolete Mix)"), and retro-futurist techno sweatiness (the undulating chords and hissing cymbals of title track "Infintesimal"). In other words, it's a fine EP packed full of floor-friendly gems.
