German imprint House is OK built its reputation on a series of compilation style EPs called We Make Music. Five years after the final volume dropped, they've decided to revisit the concept by launching a new series, Gemist. Fittingly, heavy hitting Swede Kornel Kovacs kicks off Part 1, serving up an everything-but-the-kitchen-sink peak-time floor-filler seemingly inspired by the cut-and-paste, sample-laden house hits with which M/A/R/R/S and S-Express made their name. Jean-Paul Gavri and Sleazy McQueen do a good job combining choppy house beats, disco samples and wild synth solos on "Dead Sea", while Longhair's "Coco Loco" is an attractive, retro-futurist box jam. If you fancy something a little raw and rough-round-the-edges, Janis's excellent "Floating" is well worth a listen.
