New Jack City – Back In The Dayz EP

New Jack City Back In The Dayz EP Music Is Love Records
And we continue with the 'back to 90s' theme with this unashamedly retrofied four-track EP from Dutch duo New Jack City.

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.
