Expansions In The NYC
House music abides. No matter what other trends come and go, house remains powerful across generations, absorbing new trends into itself, and coming back stronger. And nothing demonstrates that more than this huge, sprawling 2022 album — three hours long — that covers all of house’s key elements. Digital edits provoking strobelit hypnosis, endlessly unfolding jazz fusion keyboard solos, camp sass, huge gospel vocals, melodies that rival the best pop songwriting, deep Black and Latin roots in every single bar of rhythm and harmony: they’re all there, combining and recombining as readily as they did back at the birth of the genre in the 1980s, to an effect as fresh and functional in the moment as it ever was.
