3.0 out of 5 stars There Are Lumps In This Mix January 24, 2014
Format:Audio CD
These Renaissance Mix Collections tend to be more like grab bags than the albums put out in their other series, which tend to be more like cohesive DJ sets. Although not every Mix Collection I've heard is a complete scattershot, they do tend to be more uneven, and this album is no exception.

It has a promising start, with the first seven tracks of Disc 1 offering up a dark blend of classical minimal against deep house funk, the mixture set to a low simmer. This really gets going in "All Moving Over The Earth," a track with a catchy and insistent grimness that plays nicely off of the preceding ups and downs.

At this point, the set completely collapses under a poorly chosen vocal track. Vocals are tricky when it comes to EDM. It's hard to find any that don't detract from the music. "Good Times" features atonal fellows attempting awkward falsettos over mind-numbingly repetitive lyrics to "have a good time." The next few tracks meander around without doing anything to revive the spirit before decaying even further under the horribly arranged "Royal Asscher Cut," a minimal track that features the ear-grating whines of overlapping squawks. It sounds like two clowns with broken squeeze horns are honking them at each other without any rhyme or reason. Just an awful track.

The set suddenly finds the plot again with "Norah" and "Oregano," both of which bring back that twisty cone of deep funk and airy trance minimal. "Red Lines" makes it sound like Tiefschwarz is going to bring it down to a gritty finale, but the closing track, "Knox's "Mornings" -- while a beautiful piece -- is a bittersweet alterna-anthem that sounds both unfinished and completely out of place.
