Despite being active since the early '90s and chalking up a sizable discography that includes singles on all manner of acclaimed labels (think Force Tracks, NRK, V2 and Ovum Recordings), Ian Pooley has never before released music on Radio Slave's Rekids imprint. Predictably he's brought the goods on Studio A Pt. 1. He begins with the chunky weightiness of 'Basic Juno', where echoing synth sounds and tight electronic riffs ride a dubby bassline and hypnotic late-night drums, before opting for a more expansive and dreamy sound on the equally impactful, acid-flecked 'Close Your Eyes'. Fittingly, Pooley finishes with a flourish via '303 (2 Bars)', a fine fusion of melancholic, early morning deep house and jacking, off-kilter Chicagoan acid.
