"Airtight In Session Volume 1: Sampler"

Having begun life as the sub label for 90's institution Hooj,

Having begun life as the sub label for 90's institution Hooj, Airtight has spent 11 years quietly putting out quality deep house, bits of proto-nu disco, and the odd club classic.
The label's output has always been a touch sporadic, which explains why this is the vinyl sampler from the first compilation after a decade, but hopefully the depth and breadth of music on offer on the comp, and hinted at here, gives a decent insight into the standards the label has maintained throughout .
Things open up as they did back in the 90's with Francois Kevorkians gorgeous mix of Ame Strongs' French Language "Tout Est Blue". Next up is a new one from Japanese producer Atsushi Yano, "Room Safari" is a rolling, hypnotic and tough jazzy houser, somewhere between Jeff Mills and Restless Souls.
The flipside opens with a mesmeric slab of deep tackle from new-comer Tony Underground, that to these ears sounds like it's crossing oriental harmonies with Afro flavours. Things finally round off with possibly the best-selling mix of one our favourite tunes; The organic psychedelics are once again giving an airing with Justin Martins mix of "Mushrooms" from Marshall Jefferson and the Noosa Heads.
