Over the last two decades, few deep house producers have built up quite as impressive a discography as Alton Miller. Even more impressively, the Detroit native continues to deliver superb material some 24 years after he made his debut. There's naturally plenty to enjoy here, from the Motor City futurism-meets-Ron Trent warmth of "For You (Instrumental Dub)" and gentle, life-affirming positivity of the sun-kissed "Move Me", to the soulful house meets tech-house thrills of Rachel Claudio collaboration, "Rise Me (Alton's FunkLab Mix)". The EP also includes a couple of fine, Osunlade style remixes of "Rise Me" by V Underground and GenVee Ultra Tone; both are smooth, soulful and pack genuine dancefloor punch.
Arnaud le Texier (formerly of multi.vitamins) presents the next series of recruits for his newest venture Children Of Tomorrow; focused on hard hitting hypnotic techno grooves with Connection Series Vol. 5. First up is the droney sonar transmissions of current scene hero Antonio De Angelis with the fittingly titled "Drone", Barcelona based rising star Marla Singer with the tunnelling and trance inducing "Naked Face" while Moteka's "Xytyru" is one of the finest tributes to the Edit Select sound we've heard in a while. Elsewhere, PVS channels the vibe of early Prologue or Zooloft on Arcadia" and Wunderblock & Relic Radiation's "Recombination" will have you surrendering to the void in no time: awash in ethereal pads, churning synth loops and endless trails of reverb.
