Jon Delerious No Warning

He’s been at the turns for 12 years and is just releasing his first record. How very producer! The Calgary-based producer/DJ isn’t a complete newbie, with three EPs and a few remixes and compilation contributions under his belt. But for his debut LP, he comes with a deep house record that relies on a diluted dub to keep it from stagnating under the repetitive structure of house music. From the sound of "Orange Eyes (Dub Revolution)” Karsh Kale could be an influence. While there are points on the album that suffer from too much of the same thing, for example the track "Dedication,” it’s mostly a house album doing the house thing. It’s inoffensive but is saved from being ordinary by supportive bass lines and well chosen tones for pleasant melodies. (Nordic Trax)
