Various Andrew Emil presents Four Play Music
- Words: Luciana Lopez
- Label: Forever Soul-EsNtion
DJ/producer Andrew Emil wears Chicago's influence proudly on this disc, a mix of tracks from Emil's four play label. The house is heavy on the beats and light on the vocals, with moments of genuinely tight groove. But while the tracks are well done, the first half could benefit from more variety and sharper pacing. The mixing, as well, might use a bit of subtlety. A few tracks stand out-like Emil's "CTF (Nick Santillan Dub)," with its warm, dubby female vocal, and the bouncy, bass-happy "Rockument" by Pat Nice and JRod-but overall the compilation needs more range.
