3 Year Compilation LP ... TIP!
There's something undeniably old-fashioned about this latest missive from hyped imprint Nous Disques. By gathering together seven unheard tracks on one slab of wax, they recall thoughts of classic compilations from early techno labels. Musically, it's undeniably forward thinking, gathering together a range of dancefloor-friendly cuts from label artists old and new. Highlights are plentiful, from the flexible disco bass and new age chords of Mutual Attraction's "Track 2", to the stripped-back, drum machine thump of Moodcut's "Sleep In 808", via the cybernetic techno fizz of "Azoui" by Fetnat. Elsewhere, you'll also find some fine Larry Heard style deep house revivalism from Breakin Moves, and a mid-tempo blast of colourful synthesizer love by Cofaxx.
