Various Artists Public Works
- Words: J. David Marston
- Label: Dumb Unit
Toronto's Jeremy P. Caufield is the buzz amongst the techno ubermensch of Cologne and Berlin, and if you listen to some of the releases on his Dumb Unit label, you'll see why. But his DJ mix just doesn't work it. Public Works serves best as a showcase of its tracks, which is fine, considering it's a label retrospective. But the tracks begin to blah quickly, and border close to trancey tech-house in some parts. Which brings us to the second note: don't put out mix CDs as extended advertisements for your label, unless you're going to take some risks with the mixes, or you're Michael Mayer.
