Umek & Mike Vale – Point To Consider EP

Time to pick up the pace a little now with this latest from European techno stable 1605. Regular readers will know I've long been a big fan of Umek's house-informed take on techno… well, this is one of his housiest, dare I say it even discofied in places, efforts to date.

That's not to say it's not plenty tough and pounding enough for the techno floors – it is, and in fact techno floors are undoubtedly where it's gonna be most at home. But there's no mistaking the influence of classic jacking Windy City house music in the two tracks here either. B-side How's Your Body, in particular, comes on, to these ears at least, a little like I Feel Love reworked for Tresor in the 1990s, with a very familiar Chi-town vocal sample thrown in.

Pump up the volume and listen without prejudice!
