Having recently expanded the repertoire of their previously edit-heavy Retrospective imprint to include original productions from themselves and others, Ruben and Ra gather together a bunch of mates for an expansive collection of previously unreleased material. It's a largely excellent collection, mixing brand new deep house and nu-disco with smart edits and loopy, slo-mo edits-not-edits. Bedmo Disco Records' regular Jimmy The Twin and Rayko provide scalpel jobs, Ruben and Ra do their Tiger and Woods-ish thing and Toomy Disco drops some contemporary electrofunk. Best of all, though, is Fil Lavin's "Love Is Gone", a formidably rush-inducing chunk of fluid deep house that channels the spirit of Chill Out/"Pure Trance" series-era KLF via a familiar, dubbed-out vocal sample.
