Bag Teej


CANADIAN DJ James Teej's tech house is bare.
The Toronto-based beatmaker's new LP Evening Harvest is cavernously minimalist to begin with, like a bare whitewashed room.
However slowly delicious ornaments begin to furnish his skeletal house grooves - Fink-like vocals on Greenback, organs and sitars on The Rain Awakening, sleigh bells on All We Have Is Time.
It's a slow start, but it swells to become a fantastic effort, possibly the best house release since his compatriot Deadmau5's For Lack Of A Better Name.
By the end of the album, you'll agree with me that James Teej deserves to be decorated for his service to clubbers.
