Various Artists Simple One (Mixed By Will Saul)
- Words: Mike Battaglia
- Label: Simple
Will Saul is the kind of DJ we like ‘round these parts: eclectic, versatile, and not afraid to run in different directions; this makes the first compilation from his Simple label so compelling. Mixed by Saul using Ableton Live, One is a seamless journey through ambient house, dubby techno, and moody breakbeat, starting off gentile and relaxed with Sideshow‘s luxurious "Waiting in the Darkness" and taking the long way ‘round to a cracking conclusion. Never afraid to break things down after a raucous build-up, Saul peppers the mix with a dense psychedelia that must have something to do with his Glastonbury upbringing. One is the kind of mix we need to see more often: unpredictable, engaging, and complex. This time the name doesn‘t say it all.
