Various Artists Jay Haze: Mindin Business Part 1-The Minimal Grind
- Words: Dave Segal
- Label: Tuning Spork
The minimal-techno backlash is well underway, but Jay Haze's 47-track Mindin Business Part 1 irrefutably proves that the genre has plenty of juice left. Disc One abounds with the kind of clever, cerebral techno that appeals to the style's most discerning fans. Haze's own unconventionally playful productions dominate, and standouts from Fuckpony, Dan Curtin, and Michael Ho weirdly tint the disc with psychedelic hues. Disc Two is a more song-oriented excursion, featuring many of the same characters from the first disc, plus show-stealers Samim & Michal. The adventurous party music holds sway, and nuttiness is just as prevalent.
