Joss Moog - That Old Feeling

The clue's in the name here, with four tracks that evince a strong sense of nostalgia for musical days gone by.

The title track, for instance, is a lo-slung n' moody, garage-y organ groove with echo-ing percussion and insistent, repeating vocal stabs. Blue Paradise ups the retro ante further with its sampled funk loop, That's What UR puts another sampled vocal snatch over handclaps, sparse percussion and a fat, driving disco b-line while Xtra Beatz is a simple and fairly self-explanatory DJ tool.

Wheels do a pretty good job of making things move around… there's not actually any need to keep on reinventing them. And sometimes it's the same with house music, especially if you're going to revisit classic sounds with as much panache as Mr Moog has here.

Out: This week

About: This comes on Phil Weeks' label Robsoul Recordings.
