These days, there are quite a few vintage Borft releases that attract big money in the second hand market. This may have been a factor in the label's decision to kick off a new "Classics" series showcasing rare and sought-after gems from the vaults. Volume one focuses on tracks released between 1996 and '98, first showcasing the Detroit techno/spacey deep house fusion of Pher's "Tja Boo" (one of the highlights of the producer's now rare-as-hen's-teeth Dans Vid Iglasjon double-pack), before switching to the slower, darker and druggier vibes of Dan Fun's "DFSS1". On the flipside, there's another chance to savour the rubbery, pitched-up New Jersey deep house grooves of Crinan's "Kilimanjaro" and U's "Smooth Lover", a classic chunk of sci-fi techno blessed with some brilliant organ solos.
