Jerome Derradji's excellent Still Music sub-label, Stilove4music, continues to trickle its stunning back catalogue into the digital domain for the first time, and this week it's the turn of Mancunian deep haus don Trus'me. This was the 12" that first turned the world's gaze onto the Prime Numbers boss's brilliant knack for jazzy, sample based house (along with the now legendary Nards CD sampler). And it's "Nards" that opens this release, with the tense strings, funkafied bassline and sultry vocal snatches sounding as brilliant today as they did upon first release in 2007. Add to this the languid title track - predating the current vogue for slo-mo house by some 18 months - and rolling groove of "Good God", featuring a vocal sample of the legendary Teddy Pendergrass, and you have an absolutely essential release.
