Presenting the first full-length on Mood Music by producer/DJ duo Peter Gijselaers and Felix Eder aka Dirt Crew. Blow sees them back on the block with more of their original, raw-as-fuck house music. This album reveals the true roots of these pioneers of European electronic house music, with influences ranging from early Chicago warehouse tracks, sophisticated mid-'90s NYC-inspired house productions, and pioneers of UK dub house from the likes of Warp and DIY. "Deep Cover" slowly evolves with a dubbed house feel and perfectly-arranged vocal samples. Followed by "Rough Roads," the theme stays the same, deep bass confiscating the groove, holding no hostages with a building, arpeggiated synth-line. "Blow" throws old school samples and deep keys into the mix with stunning results. Keeping the pace mid-tempo, the groove just keeps going. "Clap" layers synths and vocal snippets into a frenzy of house bliss, ending in an FM synth-horn crescendo which could be from a Jovonn production from 1992. "Redux" is an old school stomper with a 2009 production to keep it fresh. Borrowing a touch from early Deep Dish, this has a massively hypnotizing, hands-in-the-air factor in true Dirt Crew-style. "Slope" is a darker affair with a well-paced Berlin peak-hour frenzy that never gets too dark. "Parade" is an ode to classic house -- deep, pulsating bass and groove mixed with some tasteful keys and vocals. "Scenario" enters darker territory, with pitched-down vocals and echoed percussion, keeping the groove on high alert till the keys drop and the dancefloor explodes -- another DC classic, for sure. "The Real Shit" is a bouncy, almost techno production with distorted beats, true DC bleepiness and dubbed-out vocals -- a demented dancefloor bomb already. Finally, "Star" starts with mesmerizing keys and a murderous bass line, evolving over minutes of modern house music at its best to a crazy horn breakdown. There's no stopping the Dirt Crew, now.
