As label debuts go, SALT001 feels like a genuine statement of intent. Run by Melbourne producers Shedbug and Rudolf C (who both contribute tracks), Salt Mine's first outing touches on a number of contemporary deep house trends whilst retaining the kind of hazy, Balearic feel most associated with the Australian city. Mall Grab & Rudolf C's dreamy "Untitled (Track 2)" pays tribute to the new age house sounds of Vancouver, while Shedbug's "End of the Drone" inhabits the ambient techno territory recently visited by Shine Grooves and the Acting Press crew. Elsewhere, Coastdream's "Untitled 16" sits somewhere between Motor City futurism and the raw rhythms of L.I.E.S, and DJ Phlowgod's "Summer" is a pitch-perfect analogue jam full of clattering machine drums, boogie synths and jackin' intent.
