Reverence is demanded,
This review is from: Deep Dish Toronto Global Underground #25 (Audio CD)
All I can say is, thank God Global Underground had the good sense to entrust their silver anniversary outing to none other than Deep Dish, two madmen/geniuses who present themselves to the public as DJs. Yes, GENIUSES...or at the very least, two people with a true love of and passion for music, something so visibly lacking in most music today that it almost seems like one would forget what to look for. Yet it turns out that, the rougher the field, the brighter the gems stand out.
I can't say enough about either of these CDs. Throughout my life I've never listened to anything even resembling funk or "deep house", yet I find myself completely captivated by this whole album. This statement will I assert and most stoutly defend: Years from now, people will hear the first track on this CD, "Diamond Life" and say "This was the beginning of the 21st century. This is what it sounded like". This is the best music of our generation.
CD2, I dare say, is even more amazing. The range of styles, and emotion, that it covers, combined with the perfectly-placed vocals (completely absorbed within the body of the song), make for what I can only call a new kind of electronic music. The last song "Nothing" must be heard to be believed.
Futuristic yet universal - if you want music that expresses our time and way of life, the technology and the uncertainty, along with our adapting but static humanity, this is what you need to be listening to. You can hear this music evolving.
