GENRE | MINIMAL SOUL
VERDICT | MOTOWN’S FINEST
LABEL | FABRIC
RELEASE | 12.5.11
People always consider “minimal” electronic music to be cold and robotic, but as Detroit’s Visionquest continually prove time and time again, less can be hella sexy. These three friends (Seth Troxler, Lee Curtiss and Shaun Reeves) from the birthplace of techno have shot to the top of the club world with a brilliant blend of the simple and the supple. Consider Thomas Brinkmann (aka Soul Center), dropped on the third track here. These guys found a bridge in France’s Seiul and Canada’s Konrad Black to bring us to Cassius’ glorious “Sound of Violence.”
A great mix requires risk-taking decisions and a connect-the-dot ability in three dimensions. Consider Troxler, Curtiss and Reeves each their own dimension with their products a matrix of influence and creation.
Or just enjoy them for being very, very sexy.
And this is what it’s like to be at Fabric for Visionquest
