Julius Papp checks in with a nice deep house mix, perfect for the warm weather. For a change, it's creatively mixed and sounds live rather than computer-assembled. There are lots of big anthems from the past year and a good balance between bumpin' tracks and smooth sexy vocals. The only drawback is the abundance of lyrical clichés, but then again, this ain't Leonard Cohen. Seriously, though, do we need yet another song telling us to "feel the rhythm?" Thankfully, the inclusion of Closer, by Goapele, repairs any hints of cheese, but why are all the best house tracks these days R&B remixes? Julius Papp performs a live PA Friday (May 14) at Hush/Underbar.
