5.0 out of 5 stars Love the sweet sounds 4 Feb 2008
Format:Audio CD
Tom Middleton is always a sure fire bet for the safe money when it comes to faultless track selection, programming, and fluid mixing and this 3CD set for Renaissance does nothing to change that perception, it is also probably the first effort he's released that is aimed primarily at the floor since his seminal Jedi's night out mixmag album back in 1999.

More importantly it's come out at a time when house music seems to be lacking inspiration and immediacy, where each successive release just seems to be doing it by the numbers and never quite delivering more than the sum of it's parts, but starting with the first disc here the standard is eye opening. Pulling on more established tracks such as Henrik Schwarz's mix of 'Voui Voui Mui' by Mari Boine and The Timewriters 'Life Is Just A Timeless Motion' which has been familiar to fans of the Plastic City label for years, sitting alongside fantastic tracks such as the Mark Knight & Funkagenda remix of Groove Armada's 'Sweet Sound' and the smooth as polished ice production Aya's Sean (Eric's 2WFU dub). This disc in particular is crammed full of those moments that just pull you in and make you grin, ploughing a deep, mesmerising furrow, scattered with wobbly basslines and shimmering, deep chords.

The second CD contains a slice of Middletons consistently excellent remix back catalogue with well known remixes such as Lambs 'What Sound', Kerri Chandlers 'Bar a Thym'and Ulrich Schnauss' 'In all the right places'. The last disc which is a more downbeat selection continues the quality, kicking off with a great, broken sounding Spiritual South remix of Middlewood sessions 'Fallback', a track first debuted on Gilles Peterson's excellent Brownswood Bubblers 2 label compilation.

3.0 out of 5 stars I Expected Better from Tom Middleton.... 11 Feb 2008
By R. Mullaney VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
I'm a huge fan of Tom Middleton. I think he is an extremely talented musician and a very interesting DJ. He is at home playing bonkers party tracks as he is deep house. He is at home producing acid house as he is ambient electronica. I also think 'The Sound of the Cosmos' is one of the best mix CDs ever made. That said, Renaissance 3D is a slight let down.

When I heard Tom was doing another 3-part mix I almost wee'd a bit. Since TSOTC we've had to catch his Radio 1 essential mix or Mixmag cover CD (both excellent) to hear any house music from him. He's been busy working on his 'Lifetracks' LP, 'Crazy Covers' compilations and his 'The Trip parts 1 & 2' mix CDs. Whilst these are worth buying, they entirely different kettles of fish to the work of his house/breaks/techno alter-ego.

Disc 1 is a classic Tom Middleton blend of very deep house which normally would be fine, but dare I say this mix gets a little boring? I've almost worn my TSOTC CD out as I listen to it so often but I can't see that problem with this one. Maybe it'll grow on me? I don't think so though, there's just nothing that special on it and did I hear a jazz flute on one of the tracks? Not cool.

Disc 2 is an unmixed studio CD of some of Tom's finest remixes. Or is it? I think these are some of Tom's least exciting remixes. Where is Zoot Woman - It's Automatic? Where is his remix of Clubbed To Death by Rob Dougan? These tracks don't seem to exist on CD anywhere and do we really need another CD featuring Kerri Chandler - Bar-A-Thym? It's on nearly every compilation from the last two years!

Disc 3 is the best in my opinion. A solid mix of some more obscure, funky and down-tempo grooves for listening to at home. Very good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Timeless House music 16 Sep 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Tom Middleton has a produced here an exquisite work that does not merely replicate many of the trends and musical fads that appears to be a common practice amongst many of his contemporaries, but he transcends them. The album includes a selection of underground House cuts, many of which are Middleton's own productions. The emphasis is on the eclectic and the refined house sounds of the kind initially produced in Middleton's earlier works. The sounds, which flow seamlessely, have an intrinsic feeling of warmth to them.

The album is split into three sections - 'Club', 'Studio' and 'Home' - each part reflecting the mood of the specific scenario. With 'Club', rotund bass lines and rich chords add to an already detailed melodic component which ease into a mix of funky grooves. These eventually get lost in the overall sound as this section of the album ends on a high, positive note.

'Studio' consists of deliberately unmixed full length versions of mainly unreleased material together with new treatments of existing cuts. 'Home' references music that Middleton personally enjoys to listen to whilst relaxing. 'Renaissance' transcends the usual one-dimensional and derivative club anthem identikit music of the clubs, and instead offers a kind of House and Electronic dance music that is timeless and atmospheric. Above all, 'Renaissance' imbues an intrinsic beauty that succeeds in moving the body as well as engaging the mind.
