Now onto the tunesies. So many months of records to catch up on posting, let's start with the essentials. Anthony Naples' debut EP is pretty fucking ridiculatron. The title track, my personal fave, is a pure house jam for a smiling dancefloor. I've been LOVING playing this one out, it's always the first record I reach for. NYC vibing. Seriously recommend picking this twelve up.

Another one that hasn't left my bag since I got it - this James Johnston record. I actually had no idea who he was, but I signed into my second Juno account which I haven't used in forever and found this sitting in the shopping cart with no memory of listening to it. Thank god I stumbled across it again. One of those incredibly rare, incredibly useful pieces of wax where every one of the 4 tracks is absolutely playable. I probs wouldn't have any gripes about playing them all in the one set if I was confident nobody would notice. Rock solid deep house goodness, if you DJ this stuff then this is pure gold.

It took me a little while to get into this Andrés EP, I have to admit. I listened to it a bunch of times in my bedroom and wasn't quite understanding the hype around the A-side, New For U. Yeah it's quite lovely, but I wasn't in the 'woah shit' zone. Then I heard it out for the first time on Saturday and it clicked. GREAT TRACK! So after saying that I'm not sure why I'm posting Jazz Dance instead. It's the tune on the record that really sat well with me immediately, and I still dig it a lot. Again, the appreciation got taken to the next level the first time I gave it a club spin. So yeah.

Lastly, a nice extended version of Eddie Kendricks' 'Date With The Rain'. On the flip is a nice old edit of Down To Love Town, so this is a very tasty twelve-inch. Mellow, emotive, soulful pre-disco disco. It's just a good song.
