Sound Design, Vol. 2

All Music Guide - Jason Birchmeier
Moving quickly through 16 diverse tracks on Sound Design, Vol. 2 for Om Records, Mark Grant drops an incredibly broad range of house tracks, everything from Latin house to the more jazzy style he's perhaps best known for. And even though he surprisingly strays from the Om catalog, you really can't complain since there aren't any dull moments in this set; he draws from an eclectic array of labels and producers -- some well-known (Masters at Work, Mood II Swing, Kerri Chandler, Eddie Amador), but most relatively unknown. It's partly this sense of the unknown that makes this mix so adventurous and thrilling, especially on the initial listen; even the most seasoned ...

All Music Guide - Jason Birchmeier
Moving quickly through 16 diverse tracks on Sound Design, Vol. 2 for Om Records, Mark Grant drops an incredibly broad range of house tracks, everything from Latin house to the more jazzy style he's perhaps best known for. And even though he surprisingly strays from the Om catalog, you really can't complain since there aren't any dull moments in this set; he draws from an eclectic array of labels and producers -- some well-known (Masters at Work, Mood II Swing, Kerri Chandler, Eddie Amador), but most relatively unknown. It's partly this sense of the unknown that makes this mix so adventurous and thrilling, especially on the initial listen; even the most seasoned listeners will travel through this set blindly, since many of these tracks are relatively obscure. Successive listens are just as delightful, though, even without the sense of surprise, and that's because of Grant's mixing, which is just as amazing as his track selection. He moves from one style of house to the next without any delay or difficulty, showcasing just how much of a masterful DJ he truly is. And he shows off a little bit too, like any great DJ should, dropping an a cappella of Amador's "Rise" early in the set and then changing gears at the conclusion with some Latin house. So forget your presumptions about this mix. Sure, it may be commissioned by Om, but it's definitely not your typical mix from the label. And don't expect this to be your typical Chicago house set either; Grant's roots may lie in Chicago, but this mix proves just how far he's come since the early '90s as a DJ, not confining himself to one sound or style. However, as diverse as this mix may be, there is one constant; every track here is stunning, particularly Kerri Chandler and Jerome Sydenham's "Deconstructed House (Phase 1)" and the album-concluding Masters at Work remix of the Pasadenas' "Round and Round." So, even if this mix isn't what you'd perhaps expect from Grant, it's partly the sense of surprise that makes is such a worthwhile listen.

    Mark Grant's latest project is ''Sound Design Vol. 2'' on Om Records (San Francisco). The CD was mixed and compiled by the House Music legend himself. I have had the privilege to get an advance copy of his CD and it's been the only disc in my CD player since the day I got it. As a matter of fact, I'm listening to it now while I write this. It's that good! The CD is packed with beautiful and soulful house that's has been hand picked by Mark Grant. It includes attractive vocals, both mesmerizing and flirtatious, and Latin rhythms, that will invite thoughts of a cool summer day. His musical selections, and his blends (on 3 turntables!), are what make this CD an essential piece to the collection of any House Music fan. ''Sound Design Vol. 2'' can be compared to Mark Grant's unique live sets. It will make your body and your soul be in motion without any alternative. His sentiments are conveyed on this mix and make for a funky, soulful, joyous, sexy and spiritual trip. It positively gives you that feeling with the purpose of elevating you to that higher plateau. I recommend that you stretch before listening to this CD because it's going to wear you out. Chicago is very fortunate to be the founding city of House Music and is very fortunate to have Mark Grant as well. House Music is part of Chicago and musical history and Mr. Grant has made his mark.
