Chicago producer The Black Madonna burst onto the scene earlier this year with the excellent "We Don't Need No Music (thank you Rahaan)" on hometown label Stripped & Chewed. Here she confirms his status as "one to watch" with another impressive slab of beefy, basement-friendly deep house for Glasgow's Home Taping crew. Constructed around densely layered percussion, minor key chords and a brilliant blues vocal, "Alright This Morning" just seems to keep building throughout its breathless, eight-minute duration. Nicholas remixes, bringing a bit of classic US house bounce to the Black Madonna's sweaty drum grooves. It's a good alternative, but for us the original still wins out.
