Various Artists JT Donaldson: Franchise Player 01
- Words: Stacy Meyn
- Label: Swank
- XLR8R Rating: 7/10
On Franchise Player 01, former Dallas resident and Fair Park Records cofounder/in-house producer JT Donaldson rides again, with mostly predictable results. This time the influence of Chicago house bubbles up through jackin' beats and blurpy basslines that chuff away then dive spooky deep. Flanging and pitch-bending effects thrive in tracks by Blacksoul, White Lotus Society, Greenskeepers, and JT himself, with remixes included from Derrick Carter, Yoruba Soul, and Bob Sinclair. Mark Farina calls "DJ JD" his fave house producer-Franchise Player 01 demonstrates why.
