Avery :: The Unseen Horizon

Recorded in February 2003, "The Unseen Horizon" takes a voyage through many styles of house.  It starts out on a harder, driving theme highlighted by Natural Rhythm's "Fall".  The mood shifts to a slightly disco-ish vibe with the Kings of Tomorrow track "The Session".  A few more tracks further into the mix brings us to a very cool track:  Twilight by Mustang.  I enjoy it's hypnotic melodies along with its thick percussive rhythms.  Almost like it was meant to be, the 3rd Eye remix of Roy Ayers melts right into the mix.  If memory serves correct, it was Rise Ashen who did this bootleg.  After a few moments in this deeper mood, things switch up to a more tribally jazzy vibe.  Claude Monnet - "New Jazz Soul" was quite a hit at the time.  It seems like in the early 2000s, you could never go wrong with a Cooly's Hot Box track.  "Cooly's Wages" is a funky deep jazzy track that I played at several venues back then.  When the Deep Swing "Shelter" track drops, things have moved towards the garage style.  Finally the mix ends with two classic tracks.  "Show You Love" by Romanthony and "Voices In My Mind" by Voices.  Both of these tracks were and still remain anthems.  They are the type of tracks that gave me goose bumps when I first heard them out late night at a rockin' night club.
