5.0 out of 5 stars
Best compilation of the year, 10 July 2005
I've never written a review before but felt compelled to do so after buying this album.
I thought after purchasing 'Joey Negro in the house' & 'Most Rated Miami' that I wouldn't need to purchase another compilation this year. But after listening to a friends copy of this album I couldn't resist.
I didn't think I'd find an album as good as 'Soulfuric in the house' (probably the best compilation from the Defected label yet) but this comes damn close.
Disc 1 oozes pure quality deep house with a Balaeric edge such as KOT's 'Another Day' & Dennis Ferrers 'Reach for Freedom' to start with, before descending deeper into the wicked 'Bar A Thym' by Kerri Chandler (seriously 3am sweating in the club time).
Disc 2 continues with some gorgeous soulful vocal house before moving into the funk zone with Bobby Blanco & Miki Moto's 'Black Sugar' and Second Crusade's 'May the Funk be with you'.
Disc 3 is pure class with some serious 70's & 80's soul classics. Not the stuff you find on your average 80's soul album but the 'real deal' with tracks from the brilliant 'Salsoul' and 'Sony BMG' stables to name but a few...
In three words, 'BUY THIS ALBUM'. If like me you enjoy your house deep, soulful and with a latin twist, you won't be dissapointed.
Pour yourself a JD & Coke, stick this on your Hi Fi, sit back & enjoy.............
