Volume 5 of From Chicago To Detroit compiled by Jordan Fields, who starts off with ”You Make Me Feel” sounding very Detroit. Nastyboy goes Italo with ”All Night Long”. The B side introduces fresh cuts by Midnight Music Club, Kaizo and Maxi Aubert all getting Jordan’s edit treatment.
Inspired and positivie vibrations from the DJ, producer and label head, Reggie Dokes from Detroit City.
It would be fair to say that Black Jazz Consortium man Fred P is a reliable source of atmospheric, immaculately produced deep house and techno. We can’t think of a duff release to date. Certainly, this first 12″ for Secretsundaze is full of playable treats. Opener “6AM” uses tribal-influenced drum rhythms, mutilated vocal samples and moody electronics to create a dark and hypnotic early morning mood, while “Herb” is a perfect fusion of trippy broken house rhythms, hazy minor key refrains and weighty dub bass. Arguably best of all, though, is “Mile High”, a superbly emotional deep house epic full of crystalline chord progressions, sweeping synth-strings and immaculately programmed percussion. Killer deep techno tracks by the never disappointing Fred P.
