Black Catalogue is based in Detroit, but on their latest release, they open their doors to the free-spirited sound of San Francisco producer Sepehr. On the title track, he takes influence from minimal house as well as tweaked acid to deliver a heads-down affair that sits somewhere between house and techno. "Caught in a Funk" is deeper and features a ponderous vocal underpinned by warm synth lines, but at its core is a similar fusion of gurgling 303s and tough, steely rhythms. The label has commissioned Jakbeat producer D'Marc Cantu to remix "Step One", and he doesn't disappoint. Introducing a more fluid groove, he lets the nagging acid and warm chords flow in a heady, irresistible manner. It makes for another killer release from this open-minded label.
