Review: Ibadan drop another excellent split here. Jerome Sydenham remixes Motorcitysoul and then joins Dennis Ferrer to continue their acclaimed run of collaborations. "Mbali" is classic New York style deep house where as "Jero"steps into driving dub territory. Extra delights include extended and dub versions. Do not miss!
Review: It's interesting to hear that late 90s, UK-influenced tech-house has made a return. In some ways, it's a logical progression for producers who embraced deep house after mnml imploded, but for Anthony Collins, it's the sound he started off with. On the title track, Simko and Collins use Brothers Vibes' vocals to create a moody yet soulful groove, its menacing bass and firing percussion sounding like the natural successor to Terry Francis's Resse-inspired productions. "Run & Tell" is of a similar disposition, but there, the duo deploy playful strings and seductive chords which lends some polish - but listen closely and you'll still hear the raw, driving rhythms of deepest, darkest Croydon.
