Boomkat Product Review:
Divine dub house evergreens by Moritz von Oswald & Mark Ernestus’ deeply adored ‘90s project .
Round Two of Main Street’s short but golden run followed the more explicitly Chicago-indebted Round One with a finer balance of Berlin/Chicago energies in 1995.
Again, ‘80s session vocalist Andy Caine lends an immaculate blue eyed soul vocal to the A-side’s Club mix of ‘New day’, with opulent vestiges of Chicago garage house, proper, and gospel house chord progressions distilled with softer dubbing to the sort of utterly skin-prickling effect that’s long been lost in translation by successive waves of house interlopers.
The ‘New Day Dub’ takes more artistic license to stretch out on the mixing desk, swapping vox for lip-smacking chord play and a crispier, energy efficient groove that rolls for days.
