Craig McWhinney's reputation has largely been built on releases that blur the boundaries between stripped-back techno and melodic tech-house. Here, he pops up on Melbourne Deepcast with something altogether deeper. "Heavy Stemmed" is as hypnotic and bewitching as his previous work, but the action revolves around a stuccato deep house rhythm and tumbling vocal samples that are pure late night deep house. The fluid, driving "Flow"moves back towards pure techno territory, retaining an air of deep house wooziness thanks to some drowsy chords. Weekend Express go all Lone-meets-Medlar on their cheery remix of "Heavy Stemmed", while the ever-impressive Mic Newman caps an all Australian affair by delivering another excellent remix in his inimitable nu-disco-meets-deep house style.
