German producer Roman Mühlschegel is the man at the helm, serving up three original tracks. Saturday Night Fever (credited to Roman Mühlschlegel & Gusti) is up first, which with its raw beats, lo-fi pianos and female scat vocal wouldn’t have sounded out of place on Serious Grooves back in the day – praise indeed from yours truly! Keep The Junction is a more driving affair with rock solid kicks, meandering organs and the vocal from Shorty Long’s 1966 soul classic Function At The Junction. And then finally there’s Left Behind, a late-night gem with pads that go on forever, sampled spoken black consciousness vox and, just to stop you drifting off completely, some very fine acid squelch.
I think Left Behind just pips if for me but it’s a close-run thing because you really do have three excellent tracks right here…
