While their sporadic appearance remains a frustration, it s hard to find fault with Boe Recordings Halal Prepared series of EPs. This third installment of the series, which lands 12 months after it s predecessor, contains another quarter of high quality deep house jams. The real highlights - to our ears, at least - are the two tracks that doff a cap to classic Detroit techno, whilst keeping their feet firmly rooted in deep house. Both -Star Struck- by Chicago Deep and Havantepe s -Plane Waves- capture the retro-futurist spirit and stargazing electronics associated with the Motor City perfectly. Elsewhere, keep an eye out for Taelue s -Desolate Dreams-, which offers a bittersweet trip into ultra-deep house territory.
