Jack to future (Resopal) Rating: NNN Rating: NNN
This unmixed compilation features contemporary micro-house and minimal techno producers taking on the sound of classic Chicago house. A lot of fun for anyone who loves early house, but a bit confusing for some German techno fans. Theoretically, though, you shouldn't be able to like micro-house if you don't like house. As long as electro, new wave, EBM and post-punk are being revived, why not acid house? Thankfully, it's more cheeky than reverential, and the updated sounds breathe new life into the familiar skeletal synth riffs.
