Description

A little opening into the creative mind of Dope Jams’ own slow to speak. Tired and bored of the specialization of dance music---a general genre-fication that rules over our strange times---Hous’: Reverse Forward 2.6, like the entire FRAGMENT series of mix-CD’s, aims to capture, assemble & reformulate a blatantly divergent & disparate range of musical styles and focus them into the unified stream of creative release---sculpting these elements with the aesthetic vision & temporal arrangement of ambitious vision. Hous’: Reverse Forward 2.6, unlike most of it’s peers, focuses exclusively in the realm of dance music---but with this the limitations cease: employing classic and contemporary house & techno, from the obscurity of European-trance-label-hidden-gem-secrecy, to the classic Detroit rooted eeriness of Mills’ otherworldly funk, to the heavy soulful vocal stylings of classic deep house lore, HOUS’… hops to and fro without missing a beat, an ambassador to every region of quality dance music without losing it’s focus of centered momentum. Time of production means nothing if quality means everything, and in this sense, well-aged classic house stands comfortably next to the most forward-looking productions here (apparently they were both focusing on the exact same future), proving that vitality and funkiness do not belong to the exclusive providence of one genre. In fact, the entire aim of this FRAGMENT series, as with “Hous’,” is to prove that self-relegation to a specific style only limits one’s impact and relegates programming to a routine of reiteration. With this mix, I write most humbly, this aim has been achieved with beautiful dexterity.
