Producer San Soda was at the helm for the label's first release and he returns here with four tracks of abyss-deep, groove-laden house that touches disco-fied Detroit jack and dub-inflicted tech. "Just In," a twinkling house number in no hurry to unveil its melancholic undertones, begins things and is all swinging handclap-heavy percussion until it gently opens up to starry-night synths that send shivers in abundance. Red D's liquid tech house remix of "20070505," meanwhile, cuts a low-slung acid growl that pushes Lady Linn's puffed up "don't go there girl" diva strut into darker corners.
"Possible Release" is my pick of the litter; a simple two-chord dub house number wound tight with machine gun percussion and vintage claps, it's drenched in smart Chicago soul that gives a knowing nod to early Larry Heard, while the slow wrecking ball disco of "Got Me Jumpin' In My Car" has got the Freerange crew talking (it was played on their recent podcast). Its creeping bassline and minimal melody make it perfect early set fodder for those inclined to that sound.
