Varley's motivation has always been the groove. His fixation reached an early peak under the G-Man guise with Album) minimalist classic "Quo Vadis?
The record still sounds coolly alien, like the irresistible funk of the interstellar medium. Not straying from that hazy brotherhood, Bayou Paradis belongs to the same clubbier faction of the alliance as his previous albums.
Both albums relish shimmering percussion tracks and blindingly reflective surface washes, whereas others in the alliance fuzz everything out in a glowering haze. Bayou Paradis begins in this radiance with "Le Soleil," which appropriately shimmers and pulses with the immense energy of a solar flare. The title track mocks the primitive percussion sounds of LFO's debut album by placing them in a sumptuous new dustless environment.
The doomy "Violator" contrasts well with the title track. Is Varley deliberately referencing the Depeche Mode album of the same name? If so, is Varley chiding Bell for his chasing of major label cash? The track is a darkwave stomper, easily gloomy enough for the most morbid Covenant fan. The following cut, "Gardelle," returns to the Maurizio camp, but adds far more clippy and current hi-hat and cymbal programming.
Underneath, there's the familiar and beloved rim-shot rumble that harks back to acid house, recalling Phuture's "Acid Trax. This record succeeds in its modest aims. Varley has created another set of classy club-ready tunes that techno DJs will justifiably drool over.
The man doesn't try for anything else. But whatever anyone thinks about Varley's old studio partner, no one could excuse Mark Bell of not thinking beyond the boxes arrayed in front of him. Varley seems to hide behind his equipment, letting the machines suck up attention. Please try again later. Verified Purchase.

I thought it was too repetitive, but on subsequent listens I decided it was subtly hypnotic and expertly mixed. Adam X creates a vibe and keeps it going all through the mix. It's just about a Columbia - Gez Varley - Gez Varley Presents Tony Montana (CD techno mix. This rocks! I may have just given you the wrong impression of this album - it is not hiNRG by any means.
It's more like an experiment of mixing house with underground. However, the result is an awesome sonic experience. It starts and ends slow and strange, Album) Adam's mixing skills and talent in picking out the right tracks shine throughout. He's almost playing with you - just when you have settled into a rhythm of a track, he throws in another riff.
And just when you're about to get a case of arrhythmia from listening, he spins in another, which makes everything fall together beautifully. The perfect example is "Grasshopper", which transforms from the weird sci-fi "Birth" into a deep house groove with light layers of electronica, and then smoothly continues into "16th", Album). Of course, none of these accolades are valid if you're simply planning to peruse this album for catchy party tunes clue: you won't find thembut it's worth it all for listening on your own time.
One person found this helpful. Had this when it came out and yes I still play it. I appreciate DJs that use skill and technique versus those that play it safe in the mix.
