DMA MAGAZINE, January 2000

For fans of eclectic, mostly downtempo electronic grooves, this is a MUST-HAVE disc. Turntables on the Hudson is a weekly underground party in New York City that saw huge success over the
"I can't recommend it highly enough." -DJ Mags
summer; recent months have seen them morph into Turntables on the Brooklyn Side at a spot underneath the Brooklyn Bridge. All I can say from a thousand miles away is, wish I could be there! Groove Collective MC Nappy G leads off this superb set with a spoken word piece over acoustic percussion that sets it all up. Next up is the midtempo Lee Davis remix of Nickodemus & Jay B's "Spoon Song," featuring Carol C. on vocals; it's a deep swirling, eastern-tinged polyrhythmic tune that clocks in around 112 BPM, licensed from one of my favorite labels, Mush/Dirty Loop Music.

Astronauts of Antiquity offer up the dub-wise "Same Ground" (73 BPM) that Nickodemus & Zeb remix to perfection, aptly called their Slow Mo remix. Neutrino "I Think Both Understood" is a moody 89 BPM trip hopper with a great piano tickle; and jazz-hop fans will appreciate Soul Kid Allstars "Take One," with its melancholy sax ride and polyrhythmic beats. Circadian Rhythm contributes "Seven Seas," a deep midtempo organic percussive groove with a solid 104 BPM thump. Single Digit Warriors "Sound Waves" is possibly my favorite cut on the disc, with its simple midtempo retro-electro type beats, turntable embellishments, and catchy key groove. The beginning of it kinda reminds me of Tom Tom Club's "Genius Of Love," in spirit; there's no melodic singing here, though, only spoken word loops and edits.

A live interlude from one of the summer's TOTH parties serves as a segue to a handful of more uptempo tracks, including DJ Smash's "Dakatari" (122 BPM), Martha Cinader's deep house delight "When The Body Calls" (125 BPM), and Derek Sessions' funky space-guitar-filled "61 Swing" (124 BPM). Pleaser takes it back down a notch with the funky, noisy jazz-beat "I Wanna Be Loved" (108 BPM), and Zeb's "For The Ladies" (105 BPM) is an eastern-flared hypnotic dub groove. By this point on the disc, you'll be cheering along with the "Outro (One More Tune)," and soaking up Pleaser's ten minute "Dream Girl," hoping the disc will never end. Look for a limited edition vinyl sampler from Liquid Sound Lounge at the beginning of the year, but until then, get the CD. I can't recommend it highly enough. 100% -MAGS
