Review: While its releases have so far been sporadic, Hamburg's Room With A View has an impressive pedigree. Under the watchful eye of owner and A&R man Phil Dairmount, the label has proved a constant source of quality house and techno over the last three years - as this 15-track retrospective neatly shows. There's much to admire, not least Dairmount's overriding passion for machine soul. Everything here is touched by raw, electronic beauty, be it spine-tingling vocal techno (the wonderful Sebastien San/Aaron Carl collaboration "Faces"), Larry Heard-ish Chicagoan deepness (Motor City Drum Ensemble), melancholic futurism (Sasse, Basic Soul Unit) or smooth deep house (Art Of Tones).

Review: With "Love" as its theme, it's perhaps unsurprising that this newie from Motor City Drum Ensemble is so sensual that it feels like MCDE man Danilo Plessow is actually gently tickling your nether regions with a fine feather duster. Whether or not the idea of getting down and dirty with Plassow floats your boat, "Love" is a particularly fine example of his deep house craft; a virtual hug crafted from live drums, minor key chords, brushed cymbals, melancholic organs and a sweet, sweet vocal. There's a more hypnotic dub, too, in the shape of "Basement Love", which offers a pleasingly chunky alternative.

Review: With its sensual blend of hissing, jazz-influenced percussion, warm chords, live keys and bluesy sampled vocals, there's no doubt that "Love" is one of Motor City Drum Ensemble's most accomplished compositions yet. Here, the original is joined by a trio of remixes, including a notable rub from Kyle Hall. His version is typically claustrophobic, building an intoxicating late groove around analogue bass pulses, relentless percussion and all manner of strange synth noises. Wolfgang Voigt reaches for the (synth) strings on his pleasingly groovy rework, whilst Smallpeople do their best Lone impression with the assistance of some big piano riffs and jackin' beats.

Review: Finally! Motor City Drum Ensemble aka Danilow Plessow drops the Raw Cuts series into one neat little package. Ubiquitous in 2009, the series showcased the Stuttgart native's ability to combine warm pads and luscious synths to create a house sound with a decidedly classicist tip. On this EP you'll also find two new jams from the Plessow-produced Jayson Brothers and a couple of new MCDE tracks, the highlight being "Prayer".

Review: Given the "contemporary classic" status of Danilo Plessow's Raw Cuts series - arguably a string of 12" singles that helped redefine deep house for a new generation - the announcement of a surprise remix release is enough to make even the most level-headed DJs go weak at the knees. Pleasingly, said remixers more than live up to the hype. Marcellus Pittman's version - smooth and deep, but with enough raw disco cut-ups and wonky Detroit swing to impress those who like it raw - is particularly good, though Mike Huckaby's locked-in deep house groover is not far behind. There's also a superb version from Recloose, whose crackly, shuffling beats, sweeping pads and soulful vocal samples recall his earliest productions for Planet E.

Review: Dani Plessow dons the Motor City Drum Ensemble name with Say A Prayer signaling a return to the production game following his much publicized creative burnout. It's clear that Plessow's period of convalescence has worked wonders, with the four tracks here every bit as deep and dusty as the much vaunted Raw Cuts series upon which the MCDE project was launched skywards. Proceedings open with the two part suite of the title track, laying down fuzzy chords and intermittent vocal swoons over a gritty 909 backbone on the opening track; part 2 meanwhile will have you digging out those Raw Cuts 12"s in order to do a MCDE master mix, such is its immediate warmth and neck snapping drums. Meanwhile, Plessow uses "The Stranger" as a chance to traverse bleepier, rattling techno terrain with superb results, whilst "SP11" is rasping high octane house at its finest.
