Article: Various Artists-A Taste Of Cajual

Author: Garnall Awad

Reference: February-March 1998


This CD mixed by Mark Grant proves what house music is all about.  Also a producer for Guidance, as well as Cajual, Grant knows how to rock the house.  Starting out with the epic hard drama of Green Velvetís masterpiece ďAnswering Machine,Ē this is a peak hour set.  Itís predominately a set of sweet funk, groovy jazz and off-the wall black-to-the-future disco cut-ups.  The selected cuts, five Grant productions, along with recent gems from Glenn Underground, Braxton Holmes and others are put into the most brilliant light through Grantís brilliant mixing and programming skills.  It commands attention through its simple and direct party vibe.  But because the music is deeper and more sophisticated than your average tracks, itís also perfect for those hazy, 5am moments.  Simply put, if you canít get the feeling here, you need to check your nervous system.
