PJU have been around for a few years now, had loads of releases on Kitsune and have never put a foot wrong with their output. Each one is a dead cert floor filler and has a hook that reminds you of something that you just can't place, and that's a great trick to know how to use so well. Yet they never really seem to get the recognition they deserve. Let's see if 'Fairlight' can do something to change that.
Reminiscent of the glory days of St Germain, Chocky loops up some jazz and lays beneath a 4/4 and some unctuous bass to rather devastating effect. Toby Tobias goes dark on the remix.
Great name, and indeed great stuff from Greek producer Sek on Ray Okpara's Ama Recordings. 'Lonely Dub' and 'The Move' win in this four-track race, deep and dirty as they very much are.
San Fran man Nick Monaco is doubtless still reeling from the universal love for his recent bootleggy reworking of Alicia Keys' 'Unthinkable'. He'd better gird his loins for similar plaudits for 'The Stalker', a loose, torrid groove with mildly unsettling lyrics. Meanwhile, 'Boy Meets World' is a soulful, beguiling piano-led '90s party jam. The Soul Clap boys weigh in with a dirty dub of 'The Stalker', as does Wolf + Lamb family man Tanner Ross. Frenchman Wadz does his thang on 'Boy Meets World', purportedly a 'g-funk' mix, but it sounds straight boogie from here.
