Review: Expect the usual jungle-meets-D&B madness from Marcus Visionary with plenty of reggae vibes, soulful, uplifting vocals and shimmying melodies that make you want to dance. Continuing his run of good form, the aptly entitled "Good Vibes" does exactly what it says on the tin with upbeat melodies, jungle horns, pops and bleeps, plus rough, rolling drums keeping up the pace. Sit back and soak up the sunshine with this one! For those who want it without the vocal, you'll be pleased to hear that there's a dub mix aswell. Bo!
Review: Turning the winter cold into groove paradise, "We Love House" is back with another exemplary installment of top-shelf house music. Dropping delicious cuts at the pace of snow falling during a blizzard, this Winter edition sees the genre's most esteemed acts fuel the groove fire. Totaling to no less than 40 tracks, this edition of 'We Love House' certainly ain't frosty. Highlights come courtesy of: Berlin enfant terribles Format: B on the bouncy stomper "The Scoop", the old school rave flavour of Todd Terry presents CLS vs Montel - "Can You Feel It" (Montel remix), the deep tribal phunk of Kryder & Erick Morillo - "Waves" (feat Bella Hunter - Erick Morillo & Harry Romero extended remix) or power duo Leftwing & Kody's "With My Body" (feat Isis Salam) that rolls with utter force as always. We must also mention the worthy addition of the classic upon all classics: Inner City - "Big Fun 2017" (extended mix).
Review: Kevin Saunderson's label has released so many classics that this compilation celebrating its quarter century is an embarrassment of riches. Classics provides an insight into Saunderson's diversity as a producer; from the classic late 80s/early 90s Detroit techno-house of "Rock to the Beat" and "The Groove That Won't Stop" through the pop techno of "Good Life" and the deeper, bass-heavy sound of his E-Dancer project, represented here by "World of Deep" and "Bassline", this is a well-rounded snapshot of Saunderson's best-known releases and projects. However, it also wins extra kudos for including some obscure gems like the classy, ominous vocal-led house of "Forces", reorded under the Essa guise.
