The mysterious (to us, for now) Legendary 1979 Orchestra launches the Legendary Sound Research imprint with three variations on the shimmering house jam "Close Your Eyes". The Legendary drums version opens the release, with crisp, rolling percussion busy in the mix but never overbearing - a hugely pleasant listen and primed for warm-up sets. Up next, the No Drums Just Soul mix strips back the percussion (obviously) with the piano loops and the chopped vocal given room to breathe. Finally, the dub mix - our pick of the bunch - gets nice and deep with those kicks ever so slightly beefed up. An accomplished release for both artist and label.
