Various Artists - MMNT002
The brainchild of synth nerds Juxtpose and JDK, analog jam project JDJX opens things up with 'Disco Machine'. Label founder Ben Houghton returns on a similar tip, his track 'Night Channels' bringing pounding kicks and saturated chords together with a classic vocal sample for yet another stripped-back house burner. Rising star Hymns returns home from a first-foray into the euro club scene. With maturity and finesse, his aptly named Giant 90s Rephlex Analord Based Love Affair' pays homage to early inspirations as he crafts a deadly and precise mix of electro-infused techno. With closing track 'Reigning', Melbourne legend Rambl lets the subs do the talking.
