Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Andy Kellman
Given the sense of humor that has run through Simon Mills and Neil Tolliday's productions as Bent, it's practically a given that their DJ sets will carry a similarly playful sense. That notion holds true on their contribution to the Fabriclive series, which combines left-field house with old-school disco, R&B, and hip-hop. Since a significant sector of house music has been taking inspiration -- and in some cases, borrowing sounds -- from the late '70s and early '80s during the early 2000s, there really isn't that much range in the selections here, despite the fact that the time span between the oldest and most recent tracks is 25 years. That doesn't necessarily take ...

All Music Guide - Andy Kellman
Given the sense of humor that has run through Simon Mills and Neil Tolliday's productions as Bent, it's practically a given that their DJ sets will carry a similarly playful sense. That notion holds true on their contribution to the Fabriclive series, which combines left-field house with old-school disco, R&B, and hip-hop. Since a significant sector of house music has been taking inspiration -- and in some cases, borrowing sounds -- from the late '70s and early '80s during the early 2000s, there really isn't that much range in the selections here, despite the fact that the time span between the oldest and most recent tracks is 25 years. That doesn't necessarily take away from the level of quality; in fact, it's one of the best, most enjoyable Fabriclive mixes to date. Mills and Tolliday aren't the most skilled DJs, but they do know how to piece a set together. After opening with Giorgio Moroder's electro-disco classic "From Here to Eternity," the duo slides in the first of three tracks from Morgan Geist's Environ label, with Metro Area's equally delirious and heartstring-tugging "Caught Up" leading the procession. The Kelley Polar Quartet's "Hammer/Anvil" and Geist's "24K" are also placed within the first half, which is linked through the latter half by Whodini's Thomas Dolby-produced "Magic Wand." From there, the selections are just as smart and imaginative. Annie's "The Greatest Hit," a slinky production in the mold of the Mary Jane Girls and Teena Marie with a Madonna sample, along with one of Bent's own tracks, lead up to a strong closing. By the time Jean Carn's "Was That All It Was" and Steve Arrington's joyous "Dancin' in the Key of Life" begin to wind down the set, you'll no doubt feel wound up, primed for more.
