Various - Nude Dimensions 3
Naked Music has been holding it down for the San Francisco house scene for the last few years, exposing the area's talent to a larger audience.  They've done this mainly by releasing quality 12 inch singles, but their Nude Dimensions series has proven instrumental to spreading the word about their music.   The first two editions were mixed by the likes of Miguel Migs, but this one arrives with relatively little star power.  Instead, the focus is on the music within, and finds the label stretching out into new areas.

In addition to homegrown favorites Migs, Blue Six and Gaelle Adisson, volume 3 imports goodies from Chicago (Deep Sensation's "Don't Stop"), Paris ("Ida Y Vuelta" from Savannnah) and England (Nathan Haines, Nova Scotia, Jersey Street).  These choices bring some needed variety to the proceedings, for as great as the Naked sound is, it can get repetitive after a while.  As usual, the blending of the mix is impeccable.

Give the label credit for recognizing an occasional change of pace could make their trademark smoothness even more impressive.  Proving that the newest crazes in dance music - nu jazz and broken beat - can coexist nicely with comparatively old deep house makes Nude Dimensions 3 a complete listening experience, one that requires heavy rotation.
