Boss of the mighty Underwater imprint and founding a member of dance music behemoth Underworld, Darren Emerson is a DJ with an impressive pedigree. His Underworld days may be behind him, but his label is going from strength to strength. The imprint is known for releasing exciting house and techno, with this mix serving up powerful musical treats from a range of players. CD 1 features winners such as Stimming & Einmusik’s biting Magdalena and Maja’s rolling Love Me Tonight. CD 2 is a slighter techier affair, where cool efforts include Adam Beyer’s take on Mathew Jonson’s awesome Marionette and Joris Voorn’s soaring Blank. Emerson delivers in style for the technoid crowd.
