It may have its critics, but there is no doubting that early 90s US house records had a profound influence on underground dance music in recent years. This is audible on the latest release from J Choirboy. Speculation is rife that this is another pseudonym for Rene 'Shed' Pawlowiz - and certainly the title track has a similar feeling to the Wax releases. But irrespective of who is behind this EP, there is no doubt that it is early contender for record of the year. On "Full Effect", joyous piano keys crash in over a stomping groove and repetitive vocals are spliced up into a stutter. It's a different story on "Lights Down", where hoover samples shriek over gargantuan break beats, but it'll be hard to beat "Full Effect".
