KIKUMOTO ALLSTARS "HOUSE MUSIC" (GIGOLO RECORDINGS)
 
I feel sure I've said this elsewhere at this site, but the great progress in the house music territory is happening with some of the indie/underground, minimalist intelligentsia of the dance world. Darkness, grooves, textures, rhythms and hooks, a post-modern/electronica tribal vibe - that's where it's at. And it's so fitting that an album entitled "House Music" should be one to take this full circle. This is a SPAND-BRANKING new album but it shoots straight through the curl of the time continuum to hit a bull's eye right in the heart's home of house - way back in the day, when disco was a fresher memory. The Kikumoto Allstars have taken the new frontier of house around the curvature of the fourth dimension and reconnected us organically to our house roots. It proves my point about the good stuff cranking out of the independent scene when an album so close in heart to the kind of goodness the folks over at Fabric are turning out is actually a bit of a retro effort. That's right! This does everything the house I've been raving about the last few months does. And it's got one foot in the underground house movement that brought this whole world to life back when disco was evolving in a less bubblegum, more substantial direction.
