Various Artists DJ Sneak: House of Om

DJ Sneak‘s excellent mixing and on-point programming create what sometimes seems so rare: a house album that you can‘t pigeonhole. Part of a new mix series on Om, this album gives Sneak the chance to show off mixing so smooth the disc sounds almost organic. The heavy use of syncopation among the selections, like Lil‘ Mark‘s "Life Is A Dream," means these tracks don‘t just rely on a thumping 4/4 to keep one‘s interest. Other numbers-like Lawnchair Generals‘ "You Got to Go," with sexy-but-not-oversexed female vocals-succeed just as well. Sneak‘s still sneaky, making sure the mix never loses its sense of fun.
