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.
