House Session 3 - Large Music

Germany's Soulstar release the third in their House Session series of label showcase compilations. After excellent sets from Transport and Seasons, this time it's the turn of Chicago-based Large Music.

There are 24 tracks in total: 12 on CD1 which is mixed by Large boss Jeff Craven, and then, somewhat unusually, 12 completely different tracks presented in their full-length, unmixed glory on CD2. And as Large has now been in existence for some 12 years, you should know what to expect: sultry deep house from the more soulful end of the spectrum. Or soulful house from the deeper end of the spectrum, I guess.

With names like Chuck Love, Dennis Ferrer, Gene Farris, RaSoul, Julius Papp, Halo & Jay-J, Scott Wozniak and Black Beat Niks, House Session 3 won't disappoint, either. It's not the most varied of albums, admittedly, nor the hippest right now, but if deep soulful grooves are your thing there's plenty to love here, with a nice upfront collection including Ethan White & Marie Tweek's Don't Tell Me You're Sorry, for all those who were wondering what the former Rurals songstrel would be up to next.

About the label: As stated, Large has been going since 1997 and putting out a damn fine line in house music since the get-go. More info here. Or for more on Soulstar click here.
