Alex Picone adds a touch of class, as only he can, by delivering a contemplative yet punchy cut entitled Melting Moon. Chicago bossman DJ Skull delivers a funky called Mood which blends jazz, funk and soul with the core foundations of real house music.As you might expect, the production and energy on this Mr Gs Now Is The Time! is utterly compelling. A moody start is peppered with a classic reggae sample as the tension slowly builds. Leo Pol steps up next with Established 1991. As the title suggests this cut has a retro-leaning outlook, conjuring up images of a warehouse rave on the outskirts of Paris in the early nineties.
