Various Artists min2MAX
- Words: Doug Morton
- Label: Minus
Following last year's Minimize to Maximize compilation, the subtractive force of Richie Hawtin's Minus label is captured once again with another first-rate selection. Label veterans Magda and Niederflur are joined by new recruits like Gaiser, Troy Pierce, Marc Houle, and Berg Nixon to drop a dozen highly polished minimal-tech biscuits that snap, crackle, and pump the way they damn well better. Heartthrob gets A1 placement for his peak-hour floor-wrecker "Baby Kate," and guest appearances from Loco Dice and Wink, plus some tidy graphic design from Matthew Hawtin, round off another essential Minus fat-pack.
