Colette & DJ Heather
House of Om
House of Om is a two-disc set from Colette and DJ Heather, with each woman exploring a different side of mainstream house music. Colette's disc incorporates lots of pop vocals, most of them sung by the classically trained singer herself on lovelorn numbers like "What Will She Do for Love" (Andy Caldwell mix). Her set is bright and melodic, and builds on rousing cuts like Rockers Revenge's "Walking on Sunshine" and Craig David's "All the Way" (Sandy Rivera remix). In contrast, DJ Heather's disc is deep, funky and rhythmic, a 4/4 equivalent to minimal techno, and the beats per minute are fast-paced. Some will find DJ Heather's predominately instrumental set monotonous, while others will be inspired to reminisce of club memories past and future. 4 stars
DJ Heather spins at Eleven50, Wed., July 26.
