|1.||"No Poetry" (5:43)|
|1.||"In Trance" (5:04)|
Following a surprise two-year hiatus, Strenth Music Recordings founder Ramon Lisandra Quezada - known to you and me as DJ Qu - returns to action. While his productions are rarely less than solid, there's something particularly impressive by the variety of tracks served up here. Contrast, for example, the fiendishly druggy and wonky early morning techno throb of "In Trance", with the skewed, sample-heavy, tooled-up late night deep house of funk-fuelled opener "No Poetry". Note the differences, too, between the bouncy, percussion-rich drum workout "Brut" and closer "Seepostrum", a brilliant fusion of broken, military-sounding drum work and loopy, head-in-the-clouds motifs. While there may be plenty of subtle eclecticism on show, all four tracks are aimed squarely at peak-time club plays.
