Saucy Vibes is the brattish offspring of Saucy Records and as such, tends to attract fresh new talent. Mike Jones has been bubbling under for a short while now and is surely set to go overground if he keeps delivering sterling efforts like this. "Don't Stop" is a sleazy jackin' after hours jam with a tech house edge. Calle Lebraun takes it back to the rawness of early Chicago and Jack Swaffer goes all-out thumping 90s New York house. Finally X5 Dubs delivers a cool electro-house rework that's the standout track of the release.
Mike Jones is consistently driving to be a lil maestro of the house genre, and this latest EP for 2Tone is pure vibes throughout. The best part about it is that "Floor Burn" sounds oldschool - there's even some breaks here and there - but it comes across as mature and confident in its own skin; "Another Jam" is another summer of '88 belter boasting a string beat structure and plenty of certified party tricks. The first remix for the latter comes from Casey Spillman who strips it right down to more contemporary deep house levels, followed by Donnie Lowe's own version to inject some tech-house spirit into the mix.
