Jacques Greene - Lay It Down (UNO002)

Right, let's talk about some music again.



Second serving from New York's UNO imprint, featuring Jacques Greene on a wickedly bent acid tip. In contrast to the fancied House of his 'Another Girl' and 'The Look' hits, 'Lay It Down' is more rugged and acid tweaked, almost like Levon Vincent going toe-to-toe with Maurice Donovan. Remix reinforcements meanwhile come from Whatever/Whatever, furnishes the groove with more muscular bass and warehouse-ready cowbells, and then there's 'What Are You Feelin'?', a signature and much in-demand JG cut which has been in circulation with Mary Anne Hobbs and the Night Slugs posse for some time already. Class 12".



Fantastic release of swung, good vibes house with intricate details in the percussion and punchy frequencys coming from the bass. Big up Jacques Greene once again.
