With such a star-studded line-up of old and new talent involved, it’s little surprise to find that De La Groove’s fourth vinyl release is seriously good. It’s that good, in fact, that there’s no space to go into each and every highlight. Instead, we’ll point you in the direction of some of our personal favourites. Check first the breezy and soulful US garage revivalism of Art of Tones’ impeccable “So Sweet”, before turning your attention to the dreamy, vibraphone-laden deep house sexiness of Cody Currie’s “As of Yet (featuring Joel Holmes)”. Grant Nelson’s “In The Dark” is a fine slab of late ’90s style UK garage, while Goddard’s “Almasti” sounds like a nu-disco era riff on Pepe Bradock deep house classic “Deep Burnt”.
