Supa DJ Dmitry
Scream Of Consciousness
After the demise of his flagship group, club favorites/mainstream pop dabblers Dee-Lite, DJ Dmitry has pursued his continued fascination with dancefloor fodder on the word-played Scream Of Consciousness. An assemblage of synapse-rinsing bliss, the mix unfolds like an introduction to the eccentric mind of the Russian-born DJ. Combining the finest elements of dance with the hyped artists that ensconce the archetype, Dmitry attempts to display the fact that he is more than novelty.
Sure, the club-ready, pre-blow up samples are ever present, but as witnessed in the early ’90s period in which Deee-Lite thrived, this environment was more than welcome. So why not some time for a bit of thumping nostalgia? No worries, because your modern-day discotheque deities are all assembled, including Timo Maas and Luke Slater, who have both graced more compilations than Boy George and other ’80s rehashes. A straight hard-house record with little breathing room, in the vein of Carl Cox, Scream is the validated statement of a tried and true DJ who strives to main relevance in our über-judgmental 21st century.
