This second installment of DJ Deep's City to City series essentially follows the same premise as its inaugural edition: tracing the roots of house music from its birthplace in Chicago and New York, with a brief stopover in Detroit for a good measure, of old-school techno. Throughout the mix, Deep does an outstanding job of selecting obscure tunes that have their place as cult classics (Mr. Fingers' "Distant Planet," "In the City" by Master C & J, and Jovonn's "Can't Make Up My Mind"). However, to his credit, he tempers them with familiar club anthems that are considered vital to the music's evolution. Unlike most mixes that find their way onto the shelves, Deep has concocted a mix that is not only educational, but thoroughly enjoyable from start to finish. This is pure house music of the highest pedigree mixed by someone who has no doubt done his homework digging through crate after crate of vinyl.
