Innovative producer, remixer, DJ and engineer-extraordinaire, Rob Rives as gone under many names; Floppy Sounds, Phantom Power, Fluid X and Shade. On his long-awaited KID Recordings debut, he chose to reach back into pop TV culture and grab the mother-in-law from The Jefferson as his new alias. To my knowledge this is first time the cranky old icon has been used in dance music and it’s high time. Rives established himself as one of New York’s premiere architects of hard, dark and penetrating electro-fuelled tech-house having worked with an impressive array of luminaries including Yoko Ono, Can, Underworld, Kraftwerk, Pet Shop Boys, The Orb, Green Velvet, X-Press 2, Francois K. and Danny Tenaglia. On “Lost In The Past” he begs the question: “what is house?” House is whatever you want it to be – the pulsating fusion of past and present in harmonious union. The result is a sweaty, unapologetically underground workout worthy of prime-time spins. B-side “Dusk” is an existential journey into psychedelic prog-house and stargazing space disco clocking in just under 11 minutes with an edit by Jason Hayer.
