New Jack City – Back In The Dayz EP
Back In The Dayz itself comes in two mixes: one with a vintage US house feel and diva wails (the original), one a proper deep organ jam the way we used to do it (the MIL Remix), both sporting one of those spoken "this is house music" vocals. Elsewhere The Golden Age is a rough-cut bumper that wouldn't have sounded out of place on Eight Ball, Movin' or Strictly back in the day, while completing the EP is Gimme That Chance, a swung, garage-y affair which goes the whole hog and bites chunks from Simone's My Family Depends On Me vocal.
With elements of Chi-town, NYC and NJ wrapped up in one floor-friendly package, this is a must – unlike some similar outings, these tracks do actually stand up next to the classics that've inspired them. Go seek.
Out: This week
About: What makes this doubly exciting is it's the first release on a brand new label… Music Is Love Records is the brainchild of Oli Furness and Angus Jefford, and is based in Manchester. Here they are on Facebook and Soundcloud.
