Various Artists Jeremy P. Caulfield: Detached 
- Words: Joe Encarnacion
- Label: Dumb-Unit
Toronto producer/DJ Jeremy P. Caulfield's mix moves minimal techno further from the iPods of unkempt IDM-ers and squarely onto the dancefloor, employing low-passed analog worbles, opiatic synth lines, and syncopated clicks. The mix reaches moments of subtle climax with the bassline whomp of "Psycho Happiness" and the vocal hook of "Truthology," only to settle back into comfortable chug-a-long tech house, avoiding risk or reason to rant to your mates. Droning hypnosis may be the point of it all, but if Caulfield and other proponents of this heady genre want to maintain dancefloor interest, they would do well to add some range to their material.
