Silent Noise - (6:09) 123 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Those with a deep knowledge of classic Chicagoan deep house may well be aware of Vincent Floyd's Cruising, a sought-after single that first appeared in stores way back in 1990 on one-off Gherkin Records offshoot Resound Records. 31 years on, the EP has lost none of its allure. Opener 'Cruising (Long Ride)' is undeniably special, with Floyd wrapping warming chords, picturesque synthesizer melodies, the sound of crashing waves and sci-fi electronics around a luscious bassline and snappy machine drums. It comes backed by the deeper, dreamier and more melody-driven 'Isolation' and 'Silent Noise', a slightly stranger - but still wonderfully atmospheric - chunk of Windy City deep house.

Review: A Dance Mania original G returns. Take one listen to the sweet chords and genius simplicity of tracks like "Economy Of Motion (Vincent Inc Morning mix)" and you can see why his sound and career has not been lost to the ages. Somewhat resurrected by Rush Hour in 2014 with a return EP after a 12 year hiatus, this progenitor of the Chicago house sound has seen a slew of releases make their way back to labels like Pulp, Traxx Underground most recently Vincent Inc's Manuscript. Cruising 120BPM grooves, light chords and sweet pads dominate this EP for the Ukranian label, with plodding basslines giving extra weight to the sunny strands of "Symbiosis" too. Percussive and tribal touches define "Cassandra's Dream" in a cosmic swell of rich and synthy waves that compliment a four-track EP reminding us that a sweet and soft side to Chicago house still lives!

Time Machine (Lola Allen Outro) - (1:15) 144 BPM
Review: Four very varied mixes to choose from on Vincent Floyd's brand new EP for New York label Ghetto Rhythms. In its Original form, 'Time Machine' is a textbook example of a classic-style deep house groove, and comes topped with analogue-sounding synths that are at times lounge-y, at others sci-fi-esque. The Vincent Inc Remix is lighter on its feet and sports tropical percussion a-plenty, the Kazarian Remix has discernible hints of disco and reggae as well as a full-on jazz section towards the end, while a downtempo Outro from Lola Allen completes the package.

Review: Has Vincent Floyd released a duff record? Certainly, we've yet to hear one. Predictably, Contemplation of Deepness is another superb selection of cuts from the veteran U.S deep house producer. The title track, in particular, is gorgeous: a soft focus chunk of spacey deep house replete with whispered spoken word vocals, elongated chords and cascading synthesizer melodies. Lerosa's remix is rather good, too, and adds a little percussive grunt and rhythmic urgency without losing any of the melodious goodness. Also worth a listen is the surprisingly organic-sounding bonus cut "Aurrora's Smile", whose warmth and musical richness is emphasized by elastic jazz-funk bass guitar, ear-pleasing guitar chords and a surprisingly swinging drum track.

Review: It would be fair to say that Release Sustain has put together a particularly hot line-up of production talent on this compilation style EP. Vakula kicks things off with "809", a thrillingly trippy chunk of heads-down house built around a relentless electronic riff and clattering drum machine percussion, before Italian producer Simoncino steals the show with "Laura B (Transimeno Dream Mix)", where haunting flute lines, Larry Heard chords and dusty vocal samples cluster around a heady, analogue-rich groove. On the flip, you'll find a deliciously positive and loved-up chunk of melodious deep house breeziness from veteran Vincent Floyd, and some fuzzy, jammed-out analogue deep house warmth from sometime Royal Oak and We Play House man Reggie Dokes.

Review: Having previously released a mini-album's worth of Vincent Floyd's unreleased early '90s recordings, Rush Hour has decided to re-release one of his most notable original EPs - 1991's Dance Mania released I Dream You. Happily, all four tracks have aged well, with the title track sounding like a near perfect blend of vintage Larry Heard, early Bobby Konders, and the more new age-inclined offerings of the Burrell Brothers. There's a bit more of a New Jersey shuffle to the superb "Get Up" (check out the wonderfully tactile organs and pads), while "Cactus Juice" sees Floyd in Chicago Jack-meets-Detroit techno mode - all alien electronics, clattering machine drums and raw energy.

Review: Earlier this year, Rush Hour announced the focus of their archival attentions would fall on Vincent Floyd, a producer with a small clutch of releases in the mid-90s for Dance Mania, Relief and Gherkin Records offshoot Resound Records. Having reissued Floyd's 1990 Dance Mania release Your Eyes back in February, Amsterdam outpost Rush Hour return to the Chicago artist's canon of work with Moonlight Fantasy, a six track missive filled with unreleased material. Sourced from Floyd's personal DAT tapes, Moonlight Fantasy focuses on his earliest productions and a time when his sumptuous sound was very much in the classic deep house mould of Larry Heard. House music historians will find this a most compelling document!

I'm So Deep - (7:08) 123 BPM
Review: Rush Hour's latest reissue focus is Vincent Floyd, a producer with a small clutch of 12" releases in the mid '90s for Dance Mania, Relief and Gherkin Records offshoot Resound Records. Although more from the producer is promised in the year to come, the first record is Your Eyes, a reissue the producer's debut for Dance Mania. Released back in 1990, the five-track 12" brandished a title track that was pretty much a perfect example of vocal deep house from the era, and this reissued edition from Rush Hour pares the record down to just three tracks, with the Chan-featuring title cut complemented by an instrumental and "I'm So Deep," described by the label as a "sinister haunting instrumental jackin track".

Review: Given the recent upsurge in interest in the back catalogue of seminal Chicago label Dance Mania - particularly the ghetto booty side of their output - it seems fitting that Strut have finally given the label the retrospective treatment it so richly deserves. The whole story is here, from the early jack tracks of Hercules, The Housemaster Boyz and Victor Romero, to the stomping rhythms of DJ Funk, Dj Deeon and Robert Armani (whose ghetto-meets-acid jam "Ambulance" is a riotous highlight). Along the way, there are classics aplenty, alongside lesser-known gems from the vaults (see Parris Mitchell Project's ace "Ghetto Shout Out (feat Wax Master)" and Paul Johnson's thrilling "Feel My MF Bass"). Whether you're a Chicago house connoisseur or not, this should be essential listening.
