The Aphotic Segments Part 1 12″ – Sistrum

The conspicuously consistent quality of Sistrum label head Patrice Scott comes to bear both in compiling this compelling compilation and in his sonic contribution.  His suggestively titled “3AM” starts off unassuming, but builds into a cascading metalic riff that forms the 12″s most vigorous jam.

But he’s also assembled an excellent team of veterans, and they deliver in subtle spades.  Sunshine stands with Anton Zap‘s strongest material, its effortless bassy funk is undeniable.  Leonid’s contribution is deep as ever, but a touch more on the propulsive, upbeat side when compared with his solo work; XDB keeps it deep and hypnotic.

Sistrum consistently releases quality deep Detroit sounds, and this compilation neatly meets its high standards.  Understated as they are, these songs are growers: tracks that gradually blossom after taking root.
