    L.A. deep house ambassador Marques Wyatt affects a New York style on this mix of classics from the 1999-2000 clubbing season. Starting out with Willy Washington's "Ain't No Runnin' Away" (featuring Paula Ralph), Wyatt gives props to the New York sound that dominated house music at the start of the 21st century. Preferring melody and instrumentation (flutes, conga drums, and strings) to relentless drum machine-made beats, the tracks on SOUND DESIGN V. 1 are well-crafted dance floor hits that are also fully rendered songs.
    MAW's "Elements of Life," Isolee's "Beau Mot Plage," and MKL vs. Soy Sos's "Her Song" are all memorable numbers with a distinct chorus and verse. Tedd Patterson's "Roots" and Aquarian Dream's poignant "Love and Tears" tell their stories over 125 bpm tempos. Also included is the lovely "Orixas," a Brazilian-inspired hit sung in Portuguese. Wyatt's sequencing is top notch, yet his mixing is very subtle on this disc, with only one extended blend and a little filtering here and there, letting the strengths of these cuts speak for themselves.
