Brooks - Jet
Bumping '90s party techno
What do we have here? A solid if unknown slab of '90s techno tools from presumed Michigander Brooks Mosher, and the first release on Ann Arbor's short-lived Smart Records.
The A side's Jet is a rave heater, all overdriven 909 and pipe-clank percussion, peppered with dialog from Airplane! and odd trance-y breakdowns. The Hijack mix is blasted, in-the-red warehouse fare, while the Stormy Weather mix dials back the theatrics into a brooding DJ tool.
On the flip, things get a little more funky. Chrome Cat deploys aquatic Detroit pads and garage-house snare chops, while Mañana Land closes out the EP with a jerky, bouncing stomper.
