Brazilian producer Zel Abud specializes in nu-funk, nu-soul, nu-jazz and trip-hop. The two original productions here stick to the formula. "Music Forever" variously bites P-funk, nu-disco and block party hip-hop, whilst somehow retaining a deep, soulful finish. "I Guess Thinking About You", meanwhile, has an airy, sun-kissed feel - helped by the sweet funk guitars and shuffling rhythms - as well as a deliciously soulful vocal from Master San. The remixes take the two tracks further towards house territory, with Thomas Krauze's remix of "I Guess..." being a fine example of deep, soulful dancefloor business. If we didn't know better, we'd think it was made in San Francisco.
