Review: Leeds-born Daley Padey, aka Hot Since 82, is known for many things but humility isn't one of them (just read his bio!). Currently standing at the top of the commercial house food chain, Padey reaffirms this anointed position with a sample of the sounds his Knee Deep In Sound label will be treating the White Isle to this summer with a fine sampler. Highlights include Lewis Boardman's sinister and deep "Lose Control", the sunnier uplifting vibes of Dee Montero's "Vedra" and Landmark's sleek and catchy "Lost In The Club".
Review: With a career that spans back to the mid-90s, if anyone can step up to Purple's Purpleized artist series it's D'Attis. Compiling tracks that date as far back as 1998 (his quintessentially soulful rub of Jamie Lewis's "For You"), the album acts as an impeccable audio CV while plotting the development of house music in the process. Styles and sounds come in myriad forms from the bulbous bass minimalism of his "Once Again" remix to his Latin-licked sunset sizzles "Circolo Cubano". A worthy addition for both completists and those who've only just got acquainted with the D'Attis style.
