While seven years have passed since Smallpeople's last album length excursion, it would be fair to say that "Afterglow", their much-anticipated sophomore set, was worth the wait. While rooted in their trademark twist on atmospheric, musically rich deep house, there's enough subtle variations across the eight tracks to suggest that the long-serving duo has delivered something that works both at home and on peak-time dancefloors. The high quality threshold throughout makes picking highlights tough, but we're particularly enjoying the bumping, early '90s NYC house-meets-Motor City deepness of "All States of Dawn", the jazzy house breeze of "Beyond", the piano-driven rush of "Sonic Winds", the dub-house warmth of "Magic Interference" and the ultra-deep pulse of "Afterglow".
