Various Artists Joey Negro: The Many Faces of Joey Negro
- Words: Janet Tzou
- Label: Z
It's not easy to sound frisky after nearly 15 years in the DJ business. But Joey Negro is no stranger to reinvention: Faces plucks from his various production monikers, each slightly refashioning his own old-school stylings. Akabu's "I'm Not Afraid of the Future" pairs a strapping techno hook with Negro's trademark vocals and exuberant house melodies, while Sunburst Band's "Far Beyond" offers a study in shuffling rhythms and jazz-inflected piano keys. It's Negro's effortlessness that makes his tunes so inviting: in a few sweeping notes, the promise of a house beat on an early-morning dancefloor feels as fresh as ever.
