10.100 (Peacefrog) Rating: NNNN
This two-CD set compiles some of the best releases from the Peacefrog catalogue. It's a rich and varied collection of mainly American techno and house, with a special focus on Detroit. Considering that there are 23 tracks here, there's an impressive lack of filler. Highlights include Theo Parrish's experimental, minimalist house; Moodyman's chopped up, atmospheric Mahogany Brown and Norma Jean Bell's Your Perfect. It's surprisingly cohesive given the range of styles presented -- everything from hard techno, jazzy house and ambient to experimental.
