30 is a seemingly effortless blend of classic Chicago jacking house with minimalistic acid funk and the occasional detour into trip-hop and ambient house. Enhanced by Laurent Garnier's longtime DJ work, the superb mix and feel for what should come next inform production skills to an incredible degree. The single "Crispy Bacon" is one of the seminal moments in the history of acid, while "Sweet Mellow D" and the mid-tempo "For Max" provide other highlights. The superb jacking theme "The Hoe" and "Flashback" (dedicated to the recently deceased Armando) are two of the more overtly Chicago-inspired tracks, but 30 is a stunning album throughout. ~ John Bush

John Peel reportedly dubbed Dave Clarke "the Baron of Techno," but his stylistic range is quite a bit broader than that. On his contribution to the now-venerable Fabric series, Clarke manages the impressive feat of ranging all over the place while maintaining a unifying thematic mood throughout, and that mood is dark -- if you're looking for happy-face glow-sticks-and-pacifiers techno, you'll want to go elsewhere. On Fabric 60, Clarke shows a strong tendency toward gothic-tinged minor-key chord environments (Raudive's "Shiver"), foreboding and often indecipherable spoken word vocals (Cristiano Balducci's "Pride," "I.D.F.D.F.I." by Ray 7 and Malik Alston), and relentless machine beats often colored by rather grim and even Teutonic atmospherics (note in particular the fun but rather chilling "Aufstand" by Gesaffelstein). Tommy Four Seven's "Armed 3" is constructed out of a muttering groove punctuated by a thudding house beat and snare hits that sound like rifle shots, while the Heuristic Audio remix of Sync24's "We Rock Non-Stop" harks back (unsurprisingly, given its title) to the sounds and beats of vintage hip-hop. Some tracks bustle and grumble while other jerk and quiver with glitchy rhythmic elaboration, and all of it is interesting, even if at times the relentlessness of some of the beats makes for a better dancing than listening experience. ~ Rick Anderson

One of the more interesting, inventive releases among the new crop of Parisian house/techno talent, I:Cube's full-length debut for Versatile covers similar territory to other recent debuts from Motorbass and Daft Punk. I:Cube's ups the trance quotient, however, making for a driving brand of funky, soulful techno with both depth and velocity. Cleaner, tighter production also adds to the album's appeal. ~ Sean Cooper
