Continuing his interest in percussive African rhythms, Chicago-born, Brooklyn-based house and techno prodigy Ron Trent delivers a deep house mix touched with deeply contemplative vibes. Abstract Afro Journey pulls from ambient atmospheres and deep house, building something vibrant and unmistakably lovely. Even a brief listen reveals the same spine-tingling, melodic beauty that touched all of the releases on Trent’s Prescription label. Dreamy cuts like New African Orchestra’s “Village Dance” are anthems for soul-searching, while Ananda Project’s stunning masterpiece “Cascades of Colour” clearly references something greater than house beats. An important collection from a house music master.
