A unique take on deep house from the same artist behind Vladislav Delay. I bought this when it first came out and was blown away at the time. It still holds up very well years later. Nothing quite like it.

An album compiling three 12″ (for a total of 6 tracks and 76 minutes), it spikes and sputters, with lots of hopskipping rhythms. Delay’s pretty, dancefloor Frenchstyle disco/house even has whispery, sultry R&B vocals most of the way through. A populist record with an underground, distorted sound that unfolds around the edges and in deep dub tones, the beats sometimes wash out to ambience and murmur, like water on ink. Think MOODYMAN, BASEMENT JAXXdeep house that snags the listener on multiple levels: head to heart to feet. Superb deep, vocal house project from the talented Mr Delay, exploring the flipside to his minimal/drift output. The beats and rhythms used here are still of the pure/minimal variety, but these tunes are designed for dancefloor use and abuse sitting somewhere alongside the pioneering house productions of Matthew herbert. Dubhousedisco, all the waydeep without being dull, understatedly funkfilled & sufficiently bleepy. The vocals Distinctly fromagetastic. Absolutely Essential. (Review by Inertia Music)
perhaps not so innovative, given Burial's stylistic parameters, these tracks are more like a frolic, made of fragments who are like distant relatives, getting nowhere really, but still being enjoyable in their atmospheric anticipation. This is more so in the case of Nightmarket, which fits what I like to think of as lo-fi trance, as anticipated in a superb track like ashtray wasp, although with a beatless and more orchestral approach in this case. aelena
