Marc Romboy – Talking All That Jazz

This is just ACE. It starts off sounding fairly typical of the kind of deep, techy house that the Germans have proved to be so good at in the past few years… and even if that was all there was to the story it'd still be a good record, don't get me wrong.

BUT! then you get what is unarguably the single best drop I've heard in years… it's not often a record takes me completely by surprise but this one did. I won't spoil it but suffice to say it's one of those moments that'll take the floor aback and give it a whole new lease of life. And it makes this the sort of record you want to run outside and drag people in off the street shouting "listen to this!"

Two mixes: the Original from Romboy himself, plus a remix from Patrick Lindsey & M. in Fresh. Without giving too much away, the latter is sparser and thus renders THAT drop even more effective.

Out: Tomorrow (Jan 20). Buy it, it's great!

About: This is on Systematic Recordings, which as you're no doubt aware is Romboy's own label and has put out stuff by the likes of Booka Shade, John Dahlback, Tommie Sunshine and Stephan Bodzin. Even Blake Baxter once. For more info, visit their website.
