Juno Review: Bradford James and DJ Monchan return to the workshop for four delicious deep house dispatches. Each groove riding with its own dreamy narrative, "This Sound" cascades with woozy pads and a little plucked arpeggio giving E-Man more than enough space to harmonise with gravitas while "Sparks" offers more of an introspective daydream. A sunset roadtrip of a vibe that touches on both blues and Balearic; once again there's bags of roomy for vocalist Bonita Oliver. Flip for two instant uplifts as "You Make Me Happy" pays homage to the source and "Let It Play" is all about the street-strutting groove so tight it would make Alan Kendall blush. Get to work.

Aside 2017 Cedar Sound Workshop Mix starts off early with the classic chicago deep house vibe. Billy Love's voice floating on 909 beats and analog synth basslines. A very simple sound structure that gradually leads you into the dark packed sweat drenched NYC nightclubs dance floor! Very trippy and psychedelic.

While A side goes for a darker deep club vibe; Bside features a remix by Anthony Naples who elevates this track to the ultimate peak-time weapon. Dubbed out vocals, heavily delayed percussion sequences, bumping bass while the drum smacks hard! Drop it in a big room club for maximum effect!
