By now, we've come accustomed to Vancouver's Mood Hut delivering the goods. Predictably, this latest missive - a second full-length from Aquarian Foundation member Layne 'Bluntman Deejay' Browne under his House of Doors alias - is another strong statement. While there are plenty of twittering, new age influenced melodies and warm, undulating grooves - see the Nu Groove style goodness of "Burmstar (Running Flutee Mix)" and the old skool urgency of the "Twin Mix" of the same track - there's a rhythmic boldness about "Starcave" that may take a few listeners by surprise. Of course, the label's usual sumptuous musicality is still present - this time represented by darting synth-sax lines and long, drawn-out chords - it's the low-end hustle and restless drum fills that make the greatest impression.
