The Button Down Mind of Daniel Bell

By Tom Magic Feet

When it comes to minimalism, the likes of Hawtin, Mills and Hood are generally considered to be the innovators in the field. Yet while Dan Bell may not have released nearly so many records as his contemporaries, his early Accelerate releases like Blip and Beat Freak were vital in shaping the movement.

In keeping with the theme of the Globus series, The Button Down Mind... is a essentially a house mix and includes a plethora of cracking tracks from producers such as LoSoul, Thomas Brinkmann, Cari Lekebusch, Herbert and Maurizio, as well as two from Bell himself. With inch-perfect mixing and a spotless track selection, the flow is seamless throughout and finishes on a flourish with Shake's Detroit State Of Mind. Highly recommended.
