British producer Mark Ambrose has been steadfast in the deep techno scene since the mid 90s, keeping his head down and slinging out refined, immersive tracks with a minimum of fuss. His Crayon label carried his most personal gear, and there was a lot of it, so now Was/Is have done the right thing and sifted through the catalogue to find the strongest jams for this Crayon Classics 12". "Zulu Groove" is a quintessential rolling groove, all pattering percussion and dubby FX threads, while "Warehouse Blues" ramps up the hi-hat sizzle and plots a course for the techno end of Ambrose's repertoire. "Thru" finishes the record off with a housier disposition, all shuffling beats and looped up melodic hiccups locked into an irresistible funk.
