The Details: Kyle Hall, Must See EP (Third Ear, 2010)
A Short Review: Now here’s one reason–besides a rare stateside appearance by Ricardo Villalobos– we’re bummed about missing Detroit’s annual DEMF festival this weekend. Kyle Hall is one of the country’s most promising deep house producers, an 18-year-old (!) student of Omar-S, Mike Huckaby and other names only true dance heads know. Judging by this jazz-infused EP and Hall’s last two contributions to the Hyperdub catalog (“Kaychunk,” the remix side of Darkstar’s “Aidy’s Girl Is a Computer”), someone needs to get this guy to deliver an actual album before the year’s over. In the meantime, we’ll continue to prove that White Men Can’t Dance while this one’s on.
