Various Artists Triple R Selection 3
- Words: Peter Nicholson
- Label: Trapez
Maximal is the new minimal. Or so one could assume from the third Riley R. Reinhold mix, which keeps many of the lean angles Trapez helped popularize while beefing them up with saucy, almost progressive synths and hilariously ridiculous vocals. The former sound appears on tracks from Reinhold with Steve Barnes ("Mondrian") and Matthias Rahn ("Programmed Society"), while the latter update comes courtesy of two tracks by Und, including "Racehorse," with an absurd upper-class accent recounting tales of jockeys. Best of all, the set is absolutely dead-on, with devastatingly straight mixes reminding you that sometimes less is more. Or is it now more is less?
