Retreating from his Cagedbaby alias for this storming follow-up to 2011's "The Piano Track", Thomas Gandey hits Southern Fried up with another stellar tech-house killer. Rocking deep Korg organ stabs and tight, jacking kicks and snares, Gandey builds and builds in a proggy-yet-funky way, while the excellent Maxxi Soundsystem get even deeper with an 808 clave taking centre stage on their slow and assured recast.
Brighton dwellers Maxxi Soundsystem and Thomas Gandey (he of Cagedbaby fame) join forces for a jaunt on Moda Black. "I Don't Care" is the epitome of house in 2012 - all vaguely touchy-feely chords, pitched-down vocal oddness and ket-addled beats straight from the big room rulebook. "Shake Your Head" flips the script, offering a deeper groove and some deliciously tactile melodies (oh, and Gandey doing his best impression of Michael McDonland). Remix-wise, Jaymo & Andy George get out the big bassline and skippy beats on their version of "Shake Your Head", while PBR Streetgang deliver a slick chunk of bespoke house.
