Halal Prepared Vol 3 12″ – Boe

CS548221-01B-BIGUK-based Boe records has included 2 Chicago underground talents in their latest installment of the compilation series. Chicago Deep and Taelue from Perpetual Rhythms recordings branch out from their local output and drop ocean-deep tunes across the pond.

Chicago Deep’s Star Struck jams a minor-key electro arpeggio over deeply moody atmospherics and a driving raw house beat, channeling a Sistrum-style groove. Taelue gets more introspective on his contribution, Desolate Dreams slows the mood down with film noir interplay between forboding strings and a minimalist piano melody, with loose drums rolling underneath. On the flip side Havantepe gives a UR / Detroit type bumpity electroid groove, and label-boss Ben Boe swings a shuffling beat under a gently melodic tune.

Without breaking any new ground, this is a thoughtful compilation that could turn some attention to the label and its understated contributors.
