Although Steven Tang's Obsolete Music Technology alias has been going since 2007, it's been the past two years where things have started to take off, in fact, more-so than the productions of his namesake.. This latest EP on Tang's own Emphasis label continues OMT's scuffed take on house that the Chicagoan has long pushed. "Insight (Another Mix)" sounds like something that would fit perfectly in a Tama Sumo DJ set or Steffi Panorama Bar mix CD, while sharing the A-side is a moist sounding "Slight", a track that invokes the mental imagery of sped-up time lapses of blooming flowers you see in a nature documentaries. The EP's emphasis (excuse the pun) on sound design makes way for the prominent use of keys (and additional vocals) Dubbyman employs in his remix to "Incite". What a pleasant EP this is.
