An artist whose love affair with Classic is now more of a 16-year marriage with two kids and a nice house in the suburbs, the ever-evolving musician, DJ and composer James Curd presents his new EP for our delectation.
'Two Decades And A Day' explores the essence of Curd's dance music credentials. 'Treat Treat Treat' (so good he named it thrice) is disco at its most pure with seductive hooks and audacious grooves for days. Alongside Chicago veteran Fuzzy Cufflinxxx (aka Bear Who?), 'Bring Back The Whoop' delves into Curd's crucial Chicago house roots, the irresistibly Chicagoan vocal tying together a ruthless ricocheting bassline and well-considered percussion breakdowns into a very neat little package.
Curd is right where he needs to be on Classic; consistently surprising and never far short of excellent, 'Two Decades And A Day' is another instant triumph.
