Phil Maher & Secret Sinz Don't You Say You Love Me Blackroom RecordsSeeing as it’s Friday night, let’s finish on a more party-hearty tip with this two-tracker from fledgling UK label Blackroom Records.

Y’know that current style of house people like to complain about, because MoS, Hed Kandi et al insist on calling it “deep house” when it’s really got more in common with mid-90s handbag and garage? Of course you do… well, as I think I’ve said on here before, I get annoyed about it being mislabelled as “deep house” too but some of it, while admittedly on the commercial side, IS actually pretty decent house music all the same. As this is.

Two mixes to choose from: the Classic Club Mix, a full-on vox/piano/M1 belter, and the slightly more subdued After Dark Mix. The former takes me back to many a Manchester podium circa 1994-96 – no mean feat for a record released 20 years later! – so going to have to plump for that one.

Out: This week
