For those who like their house deep, groovy and emotion-rich, Dessous’s back catalogue is a veritable goldmine. It is rather vast, though, so it’s good to see the Steve Bug-helmed imprint giving us a few pointers via this excellent compilation. Check, for example, the drowsy chords, undulating bass and jazzy drums of Thierry Tomas’s “Piu Piu”, the basement-bothering tech-tinged chunkiness of James Dexter’s “120” and the ultra-deep late night hyonotism of Chocky’s “Self-Knowledge (Dub)”, where hazy and trippy synthesizer motifs ebb and flow over a locked-in groove. Further highlights come in the shape of Tom Flynn’s fuzzy and far-out “Pluck” and a brilliant mid-tempo Genius of Time rub of Vincenzo’s “106 Downtown” full of gentle acid lines and freaky electronic noises.
