Boomkat Product Review:
Damn essential debut album of unique House music from DJ Qu! From his base in New York, Qu (real name Ramon Lisandro Quezada), has become an increasingly respected producer and DJ, managing a residency at the revered HouseDanceConference besides his own brilliant Strength Music Recordings. After four years of highly sought after releases he presents 12 tracks of inimitable and downright irresistible Deep House music, the kind of stuff that makes most other dance music seem bland, clunky and uninspired. Qu's music does not go through the motions: it is a motion all of it's own. Deeply informed by his Latin heritage and the House culture of his home city, these tracks are made with the dancers in mind, first and foremost. From the pure and kinked percussion of 'Mud The Congo', through the slinkily motorik drive of 'Get Sum', the opulent spirit of 'First Down', the abstract and deeply powerful sound design of 'Thrilla' or 'Mixing Room's sparse but shark-eyed construction, we can honestly say this is the best House/Techno album we've encountered this year or the last. If you didn't pick up the wax, don't be so daft this time! Massively recommended!!!
