The title track from prolific producer James Curds debut album Taking All This Time is a marker of the quality of the 14-track collection, and one of the new tracks set amongst some of his finest moments to date.

A looping jazz-funk b-line and key sample cut pumps round and round as splashy hi-hats and tense synth whirrs build the mood, before the sweet male vocal refrain is unleashed over a pleasingly mellow melodic progression. The vocal by Shyam P reveals itself more, laying on a honeyed R&B / soul feel to the proceedings before were dropped back into that relentless disco groove. Snatches of biting electric pianos intersperse the rhythm, and drawn out sax samples provides a moment of juxtaposition in the break. The overall feel is that of a melancholy summer jam that bridges the gap between multiple genres, concisely reflecting Curds tastes in the process.

Alan Dixon (Running Back) ditches the soulful feel for an acid/electro/Italo fusion on his bold remix, setting bubbling acid lines against early '90s piano chords that joyously take centre stage midway through the track.
