The Ambassador's Reception label has subtly shifted focus in recent times, moving away from obscure disco edits towards original production. This expansive set from Italian producer Sofa Talk falls into the latter category, combining notably luscious, eyes-closed deep house cuts (see "Floating Thoughts" and "Halo Strings"), with the odd dash of P-funk influenced broken beat (the standout "Away From The Point"), and a couple of notable remixes. In the latter category, Chris Massey drops a trippy, psychedelic acid remake of "Floating Thoughts", whilst Golf Channel regulars The Central Executives add some live percussion and freestyle jazz horns to "Halo Strings", giving it a wayward Afro-disco-meets-deep-house feel.
