D5: Sides of Space

D5: Sides of Space

This CD looks pretty unassuming, but it’s actually a treasure trove of released and unreleased tracks by one of the best Detroit-sounding techno producers who isn’t from Detroit. Seriously, these tracks could’ve totally been released on Metroplex or Transmat or Planet E during the ’90s. Instead, they were released on Delsin during the 2000s and I’d never heard of them until now. Super vibrant, melodic, soulful night drive music. Tracks like “Transglide” and “Future Sense” perfectly blend striding beats and sublime melodies, hitting on whatever magic formulas Carl Craig and Juan Atkins have been concocting for ages. None of these tracks are overstuffed or too busy, and yet they’re not minimal. They also aren’t the type of tracks that just loop endlessly for several minutes. They’re bright and alive, and they feel like they’re inhabited by spirits. Highest recommendation.
