Various Groovetechnology V1.3

A double CD featuring a variety of house styles selected by James Taylor and David Brown (of Swayzak), who also both happen to be superb dubby house producers in their own right. Despite the fact that everything from dubby to tech to abstract house is on this CD, V1.3 is not a DJ set, rather a showcase of bomb tracks. Among the more choice cuts on this CD are music by Akufen, Herbert, Mike Inc. and Vladislav Delay. It was a distinct pleasure to find a track from the Basic Channel producers, and another from Round Four (one of the alter ego's of Basic Channel) with Tikiman on vocals; both easily the best tracks on the compilation. That being said, all the music on this double CD showcase excellent tunes and serves as an excellent guide for some of the best in contemporary and slightly dated avant house. (Studio !K7)
