Boomkat Product Review:
Tidy label compilation from Third Ear, celebrating 10 years in the business of deep, grooving house and techno. Third Ear specialises in music of the Detroit-hailing and Detroit-influenced variety, and artists from the Motor City provide the comp's backbone: Theo Parrish's original, jazz-touched 'Falling Up', Kyle Hall's mellow 'Ghosten', Recloose's unbelievably funked up Why Sheep remix and Mike Agent X Clark's epic, spaced-out Beatdown classic 'Motown'. But the catalogue is far-reaching, and In Yer Third Ear duly draws on the talents of London house hotshot Wbeeza (the slinky 'Bichez' and 'Lust', Brendan Moeller ('Pink Noise', one of his finest ever productions), Benjamin Brunn (the analogue odyssey 'Stay Hungry'). Irresistible Force, Crowdpleaser & St Plomb, LA Williams, Dubble D, EBZ and Sarass are some of the other estimable producers who contribute to this mammoth two-disc set. For those who like their house silky and sensuous but served up with a little bit of Michigan grit, this is a must-have.
