French house master DJ Deep has always had a knack for associating himself with the very best from the dance game. Throughout the 00s, you could find him chilling on Tresor or up on the Distance label, but his speciality was certainly spinning records. In fact, that's how he struck up a relationship with NYC's mighty Kerri Chandler, going on to form a long-lasting relationship that would land him on Deeply Rooted House and, as of now, Kaoz Theory. For The Love Of Kaoz is a tripped-out pile of percussive dance sketches, all wrapped up in a noticeably tribalistic sort of flair. "Thai" and "Tuesday Record Shopping In Paris" are slower, more warm-up pieces, while "Guardian" and Cavalier Drums" pump out that classic DEEP sound we all know and love...pushing it far and hard.
The legendary Moscow club delivers a third instalment of future-facing techno. Zadig's "Solar Analog" kicks off the release in frenetic style with a firing percussive workout, while veteran producer Savas Pascalidis shows why he is such a respected name, thanks to the grimy acid and concrete kicks of "Kontext". Conscious of Propaganda's propensity for tougher sounds, DJ Deep's "Night Scan" is among his hardest musical iteration - and is based on a lean rhythm and mean filters that swoop in and out of the arrangement. Finally, Versions take inspiration from the eerie, steel-plated minimalism of Space DJz' 90s sounds with "Broken Strings".
