Mort's Best of 2007

"Say Hello to My Little List"

The 3 Best Electronic Releases of 2007 (That You May Not Have Heard About)
GUI BORATTO - Chromophobia [Kompakt]
Brazilian-born Gui Boratto created a trancey tech-house record that is big on rhythmic inventiveness and is characterized by his ability to connect seemingly disjointed sound loops into a warm, cohesive whole.

PANTHA DU PRINCE - This Bliss [Dial]
Pantha Du Prince's second LP is an extension of the sound he explored on his first disc: deep house with a narcotic and melancholy edge, with flourishes of beauty seeming to arise out of nowhere. This album begs for a pair of headphones and your undivided attention.

THE FIELD - From Here We Go Sublime [Kompakt]
The Field masterfully uses tightly looped samples to create layers of complex sound. The music is a propulsive, ambient drone that simultaneously moves forward while existing in a state of suspended animation.
