It's Various Artists time for Mistress Recordings, continuing the hair colour theme that has been running with The Brunette and The Redhead. DVS1's sublabel is known for opening up to more diverse sounds and it shows here, as you get treated to bouncy deep abstractions from Jonas Friedlich, dirty analogue immersion from ASOK, dreamy house music from Nicson and An Gelo, and crisp mournful techno from Kirill Mamin. What binds all these tracks together is the melancholic atmospheres and the tough line in rhythm that goes hand in hand with DVS1's artistic temperament. Both playable and intriguing, there's nothing not to love about this EP.
