Henry Hyde - "Every Day's A Good Day For A Swim" - (6:19) 135 BPM
Review: While the ethos behind Bobby Pleasure's Needs (Not For Profit) label is admirable - all proceeds go to carefully chosen charities - the imprint's greatest calling card is the exceptionally high quality of its releases. That's evident once again on EP number six, which begins with a stellar slab of fizzing, synth-sporting peak-time breakbeat house from fast-rising DJ/producer Eris Drew. Her bustling, pleasingly positive "See You In Snow" is quickly followed by the low-slung dub disco/deep house heaviness of Edward's "Mind Loop" and the rave era deep house/proto hardcore fusion of D Tiffany's typically dreamy sunrise workout "Sun Trip". Best of all, though, is the liquid warmth of Henry Hyde's "Every Day's a Good Day", where lucid ambient electronics swim around bold, bass-heavy two-step beats.
