Review: Does James Burnham ever find time to sleep? The Leeds-based tech house hero has been churning out his trademark grooves for the better part of 15 years as Burnski, where he was a staple of top labels like 20:20 Vision, Dessous and Real Tone before moving on to head up his successful Constant Sound - the current 'go to' label. He's no stranger to Jamie Jones either, having released on both Hot Creations and sister label Hottrax previously, but he's back under the lesser known alias of James Solace here for the 'Mind Music' EP. It features the deep, down and dirty Reese-driven action of "Keep On", the sunny peak time thriller "Catalyst" which we can imagine having the crowd going mental on The White Isle this summer, and the tunnelling after hours shenanigans of "Groove" - which works that TB-303 to perfection.
Review: A few weeks ago you may remember us asking if James Burnham ever finds time to sleep? Clearly not! The Middlesbourough native and Constant Sound main man takes time out from the Burnski alias and is on a roll as James Solace, following up a terrific efforts for Hot Creations and Knee Deep In Sound. His new hit prediction is "Ghost Town", a rolling funky house tool which is sure to cause a stir in the clubs, not to mention the energised and tranced-out euphoria of "Universal" and the utterly hypnotic prog house epic "Spectral" which will work a treat under the strobe lights. Finally, the Afro house influenced "Thoughts" provides emotive and spiritual vibes.
