At what point did the wave of New York house producers become closer in sound to their European peers? The turning point was perhaps the launch of Anthony Parasole's The Corner label. Whether this is the case is unclear, but there is no doubt that the US producer's links to Berlin strengthen with the release of My Block on Berghain's in-house label, Ostgut Ton. Ironically though, the title track has more in common with UK techno, its rolling drums and loopy tones sounding like a sleek and dynamic update of late '90s techno tools. "Bizarre" has a more mysterious feeling as Parasole drags the listener down a tunneling groove that sounds influenced by Prologue and Dozzy, while "Typhoon" reverts to the dense, loopy sound, this time realized through a filtered prism.
