Part II boasts the compilation's best track, which comes courtesy of Manchester's Herron. The meandyou. cofounder nods to Kassem Mosse on "Yusumita," a slow-mo electro groover with the wheezy grace of the Leipzig producer's best work. The other away player is Machine Woman, whose "Iron Curtain" is a characteristic loop track, intriguing and strangely funky but a bit too long.
The other tracks come from new-ish local artists, and are various kinds of rumpled house music. This sound has been explored extensively in the '10s, and the Jheri crew tackles it proficiently, if not always with flair. SBOT's "Yassam" makes the pilgrimage to Chicago, its Mr. Fingers-style bassline and biscuit-tin drums flavoured with dreamy chords that sidechain themselves into every fold of the mix. Sias's "Brickfields" ups the weirdness with crazy chord stabs and a theremin lead. There's a hint of garage to its beat, a quirk shared with Soft Stone's "Stretching." The latter track lingers in breakdown stasis, closing out the compilation with featherlight chords and dabs of perky melody.
