Various Artists Southport Weekender Vol. 3
- Words: Luciana Lopez
- Label: suSU
Dimitri from Paris shines on this three-disc set, with great pacing and mixing that highlights eminently danceable vocal-leaning house. Quentin Harris, the Detroit-born hip-hop artist turned New York house remixer/producer, contributes a more laid-back disc. But it‘s Jazzie B who delivers the best programming, a mix of soulful classics from luminaries like Roy Ayers, James Brown, and Marvin Gaye (and Jazzie‘s own Soul II Soul) and the occasional more modern cut, like two tracks from Wookie ("Down on Me" and, with Lain, "Battle"). Not always as smooth as it could be, the set nonetheless offers plenty.
