Boomkat Product Review:
Delsin Records should really require little introduction to techno and house fans. For well over 10 years they've been established as Holland's premier outlet for all things deep and Detroit orientated with a roll call now including Redshape, Newworldaquarium and Shed. This is their second label round up, usefully collecting their best cuts from the last half of this decade. Spread over 2 discs, the selections run knee deep with future classics and hidden gems galore. Redshape's 'Misc Usage' is a notable highlight, culled from his 2006 EP of the same name which is long out of print now. Delta Funktionen's 'Nebula' is taken from his stunning 'Electromagnetic Radiation EP' which ranked highly on our end-of-year chart, and office fave Newworldaquarium provides two immense cuts with the melted synths of 'Bond' and the super rare and early 'Twenty', quite possibly one of his lushest tracks to date, and that's only the first disc! The second includes another 12 essential neo-Detroit techno and house tracks, reaching from the Nubian Mindz classic 'Afrika Man' to a healthy amount of Vince Watson productions and Shed's killer 'Handle With Care' cut from his 2006 EP of the same name. It's really a no brainer for anyone who didn't have the time or funds to pick up the 12"s on release and proves that the label is still in very rude health. We're looking forward to 3.0 already - Amazing collection.
