Review: Quantize Recordings is the brainchild of Baltimore legends DJ Spen and Thommy Davis. As executive producers, they work with other producers - in this case Soundshack head honchos (West Yorkshire UK) John Khan and Earl Tutu. With Asia Yarwood on vocals, they use the label as a vehicle of expression with people all around the world. "Lies" (original mix) sees them nailing that classic funky house sound that we all know and love from the late '90s, while the DJ Spen & Reelsoul remix gets that classic 'B-more' bounce on in true style. For something more lo-slung and urban, hear the sexy swagger of the Groovy Soul remix up next. Great vocal talents here by Asia Yarwood, who is based in Blackpool and previously lent her fine vocal talents to Andy Edit, Cafe 432 and Thomas Brenner.
Review: Grown men of a certain age will be very confused by this new release from house heroes Todd Terry and DJ Spen, as they tackle '70s classic "Stone Fox Chase", better known as the theme to BBC music show The Old Grey Whistle Test. The famous harmonica riff is present and correct as is most of the original with just some subtle beefing up going on. Terry's own mix adds some seriously slammin' jack master beats to the equation though, whilst other highlights include Damond Ramsey's techy excursion and Mannoo's swampy beat-fest.
