Various Artists - Nightfall and other stories [RS025]
A2 - SIMONCINO - LAURA B. (TRANSIMENO DREAM MIX)
B1 - VINCENT FLOYD - EUPHORIC RECALL
B2 - REGGIE DOKES - SHE A FREAK
Opening proceedings on A1 is *Dekmantel* mainstay *Vakula*. A regular at the Release/Sustain ‘Conclave’ parties and part of the RS family His offering, _809,_ is a percussive drum tool trip of a track, with sporadic raw percussion shooting shining across a positively minimalist backing.
For A2, we see Italian stalwart of underground dance music, *L.I.E.S* & *Crème Organization* regular, *Simoncino*. Obscure sample work, and a repeating line ‘i can use a friend’, twist and turn over rugged, thumping, functional drums and bass. Simoncino at his best!
Furthering the quality of this standout 12’’ is Chicago house music pioneer, and *Dance Mania* alumini *Vincent Floyd*. Rich in melody and familiar classic house sounds, Reggie’s soft jacking house sound bring a silky smooth, North American touch to a previously rugged, European 12 slab of wax.
Rounding things off we have *Clone*, *Prime Numbers* & *Deep Explorer* badman, *Reggie Dokes*. A cut riddled with percussive and quirky undertones
