Product Description

Product Description

House of Woo is the second album by Maxmillion dunbar. Maxmillion dunbar is one-half of Beautiful Swimmers and runs the influential Future Times imprint. House of Woo is cut from the same leftfield dance cloth as Theo Parrish s Parallel Dimensions and Newworldaquarium s vast catalog. Maxmillion dunbar will support the release of House of Woo internationally, with heavy focus on European summer 2013 festivals. Limited edition double LP set. Maxmillion Dunbar s House of Woo is raised on a solid foundation of love. Maxmillion dunbar is one half of Beautiful Swimmers and don behind the Future Times record label. dunbar first tried his fingers at programming hip hop beats and eventually introduced his rogue breed of house music to the dance world via 2010 s Cool Water. House of Woo counters Cool Water s darkness with shimmering, dazzling light. HOW is a pure blast of bliss inspired by dunbar and his girlfriend s deeply rooted relationship. Themes of their devotion never appear lyrically on HOW, but ebb in the album s emotional flow. House of Woo s architecture is free of fabricated rigidity, but does bare structural resemblance to some of dance music s outer limit moments. Theo Parrish s narrative masterpiece Parallel Dimensions is touchstone on a track like Coins For The Canopy , while the cerebral techno of Newworldaquarium takes moving, grooving form on The Figurine and album namesake Woo. in percussive corners throughout House of Woo, dunbar drums up native dC Go-Go spirits and skitters into Jersey swing on tracks like ice room Graffiti . Dunbar deviates even further from the blueprint on For Mozy and Shampoo , pieces that haunt House of Woo with their spectral, synthetic wash outs. Whether showing respect and love for his influences or for his peers and those even nearer and dearer, dunbar stands in the doorway waiting with a warm invitation to anyone ready to dance, embrace, and inhabit forever the House of Woo.

4.0 out of 5 stars Eclectic sugar rush 27 Mar 2013
Format:Audio CD
The House of Woo is a slippery, eclectic beast of an LP. As an attempt at description, here are a few of my initial thoughts:

"Woo" - similar to DJ Q's tech-house of the late `90s
"Coins for the Canopy" - like a cascade of glitch in a giant Super Mario coin room
"Figurine" - a vibes-heavy R'n'B slow jam shmooze
"Inca Tags" - all sleigh bells, gangsta clap and heavily processed horns
"For Mozy" - a straight up Vangelis new age homage
"Loving The Drift World Taste" - Oneohtrix via Detroit techno
"Peeling an Orange in One Piece" - a lop-sided psychotropic lurch through a rainforest
"Ice Room Graffiti" - an update on Chicago House
"Kangaroo" & "Shampoo" - Both conjure up memories of old Black Dog Productions tracks.

The production is artfully constructed with that ever-so carefully slip-shod timing on the kick drums and resolutely un-cool timbres like electronic pan pipes.
The overall sound is instantly gratifying but with repeat listens it is wearing a little thin and I don't know whether it will stand the test of time. For the time being though it's a decent listen with a gauzy, psychedelic blanket draped over it all. File next to Sand Circles' awesome `Motor City' cassette.
