Huggy & Dean Newton - Spectrum

It's been eight months since I described this pair's The Dukes (in iDJ) as sounding like "the Roobarb & Custard theme reworked for a mid-90s gay club, with a hefty dose of swing added". Since then of course they've scored a reasonably-sized club hit in the shape of 747 on Subliminal and now here they are again with Spectrum, which sees the pair in slightly less obvious mode. The track has techy/proggy influences to the fore and, while still pretty 'accessible' sounding, is just a wee bit less commercial, which is a good thing methinks.

Two mixes from H&D themselves (Original and Jumbo Remix), plus a rerub from Orli & Da Ragnio, but they don't vary hugely TBH. Still, as big room, synth riff-driven floor fodder this'll do its job… and it's out this week on Supra Recordings. So there.

About the label: Supra is a proggy/borderline trance imprint out of Germany, not be confused with the French funk/soul label of the same name… and that's all I know. But here's the label's website, plus Huggy & Dean's own MySpace, should you wish to find out more.
