This is the first of a new, four-part compilation entitled Traffic III. Detroit-techno and breakbeats were the coordinates of Traffic II, the last compilation which was released three years ago. On the first 10" with Matt Flores, Ada and Glagla, the sound clearly moves in a 4/4 direction. As always, the musical language is more melodic than straight. Ada presents an almost sweet, Christmas-like atmosphere with "Sternhagel." "Nightlife" is Glagla's debut on Combination. With its melodies and its dancefloor brilliance, it's a track that really calls for remixes. Matt Flores is the man with an atypical bassdrum who single-handedly composes kicking sketches of garage and minimal. "Autorock" is so minimal, its dry -- as if it comes right out of the fog machine.
