Review: This fine slab of house hedonism is a rare example of a successful cross-generational collaboration. It's a collaboration between all-round UK house legend Terry Farley (he of Faith and Junior Boy's Own fame), XOYO resident Wade Teo and New York-based spoken word artist Kameelah Waheed. Farley and Teo's original version is a pleasingly nostalgic and forthright affair that sits somewhere between acid-flecked DJ Pierre productions of the mid-90s (his Wild Ptch phase, basically), piano-sporting early '90s piano anthems, hip-house and the chunkier end of Junior Vasquez's Sound Factory-era reworks. Over on the flip, Farley and Teo deliver the more tactile, warming, Frankie Knuckles style 'Lonely Dancer Remix', before enlisting DOP's Kevin Swain for the darker and crunchier 'Angels Take Control Remix'.
