As we all know, there's something of a disco-house revival going on right now, and Steve Mac and co's Nocturnal Recordings continue to keep up their end of the bargain with this latest from Green Street.
Thankfully leaning towards the more credible, Sneak-ish side of disco-house, as opposed tothe cheesy French touch/Hed Kandi end of the spectrum, In Effect in its Original form consists of the usual filtered disco loops plus a male voice listing those urban centres that are “in effect”. Miami, Las Vegas, San Francisco, Chicago and New York all are, apparently, though strangely Chelmsford seems to have been missed off the list. Ah well.
The M80 Dub takes things a little deeper and drops the vox, while the Hijack Re-Rub adds some silly Dutch-style synth wibbles for the kiddies. The track doesn't really need it to these ears but then I'm not 17, am I?
Overall TIWWD verdict: not essential, but playable for sure.
