Larry Heard Presents Mr. White – Virtual Emotion [ML2236]
Eleven years after he introduced us to his Mr White alias with the acidic bliss of “The Sun Can’t Compare”, Heard returns with two more extensive, immersive and stylised slices of house. “Virtual Emotion” is a breath-taking progressive odyssey that resonates in that perfect sweet spot between house and techno. “Supernova” takes a much more structured route with full nagging vocals and a sense of proto house theatre running throughout. With promise of a new album (his first in over 12 years), it’s an exciting time to be a Larry Heard fan.
