Point G The Point G Ex­pe­ri­ence

Future Music - - ALBUM REVIEWS -

Af­ter the re­birth of his Point G pro­ject back in 2013, French house stalwart DJ Gre­gory now un­leashes a eigh­teen-track ret­ro­spec­tive of his much loved alias. The vet­eran pro­ducer res­ur­rected Point G only af­ter the huge re­sponse to the reis­sue of his 90s clas­sic, Un­der­wa­ter, which Dan Ghenacia re­leased as the first record for his Apol­lo­nia im­print. Since then, the pro­ject has en­joyed a re­nais­sance en­com­pass­ing new mu­sic, live shows and a Point G la­bel that has dropped nine im­pres­sive twelve inches. The Point G Ex­pe­ri­ence show­cases the raw, stripped-back aes­thetic that has be­come the hall­mark of the moniker. Dubby at­mos­pheres, jack­ing beats, hyp­notic bass and lush pads pro­vide the back­bone of the French­man’s dev­as­tat­ingly sim­ple pro­duc­tions. The record has real fo­cus and an in­sa­tiable drive. The typ­i­cally dance­floor-ready col­lec­tion of songs tra­verse styles and eras with that idio­syn­cratic Point G ap­proach. His dis­tinc­tive grum­bling basslines, thump­ing drum ma­chine rhythms and ma­nip­u­lated analogue synths cre­ate a world that is at once clas­sic and fu­tur­is­tic. With such vir­tu­os­ity on dis­play, here’s hop­ing that Point G goes on to cre­ate his spe­cial club vibes for many years to come. Tom Jones
