Jay Haze Love For A Strange World
- Words: Daniel Siwek
- Label: Kitty-Yo
With aliases like the Architect and Dub Surgeon, minimal techno/house fans may already know him, but technically this is a debut release for Jay Haze. Who are we to judge one's meds, but rumor has it (actually, a lie) that this electro-soul record was captured live in a k-hole. After getting dumped on "Why Did You Do It," Haze croons "I was there for you"-it's like Chaka Kahn's "I Feel For You," only with desperation rather than romance. In fact, most vocals here are delivered in that harmonized Detroit Grand Pubahs "Sandwiches" style-simultaneously slimy and sexy.
