Various Artists Derrick Carter & Mark Farina: Live At Om
- Words: Peter Nicholson
- Label: Om
Recorded live at Om's San Francisco monthly, longtime friends Carter and Farina flex their skills and styles, pairing flawless crossfader action with tracky Chicago house. Disc 1 finds Farina deploying his trademark blend of jacked funk and vocal oddities, with squelchy craziness from Cajmere and Land Shark's Trax-esque "Tie Me Up" as highlights. On the second disc, Carter keeps the mixing tight but introduces a disco feel with two cuts from Stacy Kidd and Backroom Production's "Classic Vibe." Pumping stuff from two DJs whose techniques perfectly match their taste.
