COLL: 5 Years Desolat Label: Desolat

Wow! This is one of the best house compilations I've reviewed in a long time. KUDOS to Desolat! They did an amazing job putting this together, and each track has its own distinctive character. And there are many styles represented, from the light & soulful to the dark & thumping, and tasty flavors in between. Loved every track. Try them all! If I had to choose, I'd say "Amorphous Mass" (#2), "La France" (#5), "Mancha" (#6), and "Room 305" (#7) are my favorites.

1. "Enty" - I've been a fan of Alexkid since his album "Mint". A smooth, deep, synth-bathed deep-house track that's got a nice groove to it, very listenable & mysterious.
2. "Amorphous Mass" - Hector kills it with deep heavy thudding beats, accompanied by a deep male vocal sample. Awesome club banger.
3. "How Much 909 Can U Take?" - I can take a lot of 909 (analog bass). If you can too, this is your track - a retro-style electro-bass thumper with huge claps & snares.
4. "Lolo Pohinho" - A mad, nervy, tweaky, comical, and wonderful track with electro loops and little percussive rolls. Genius work by Loco Dice, the guy who mixed the compilation.
5. "La France" - Chunky house beats, female vocals in French, huge funky bassline, catchy little loops. Love it!
6. "Mancha" - Slammin'! Rolling bass & thumping beat driving this club-floor tech-house banger. Unintelligible male vocals interspersed throughout, giving a druggy effect.
7. "Room305" - tINI brings it smooth & soulful. Sparse R&B vocals over a space-y deep-house track, totally yummy.
8. "Our Connection" - African-infused flavors, lovely organic percussion over a space-y deep-house backing, with assorted vocals in French.
