Ding, ding! After a long wait it’s round two of the Gmos & Nico series of mix-ups. Queensbury rules, no grandstanding, no overwrought premeditated blends, just hit record and hope for the best. The opening two tracks indicate when this was recorded (r.i.p GSH) and from there it’s everything from Tom Noble’s exceptional re-issues/re-edits, Audio Atlas, Nick Straker Band, Chaka Khan, Kerri Chandler and a whole load of other shit that hasn’t been properly ID’d yet.
Money can’t buy you happiness but it can buy you a couple of heavy air mailers packed with shiny, black, shrink-wrapped vinyl fresh from the pressing plant (sort of). This is all new music and is an assertion that contrary to some grumblers there is in fact more good music being released these days than it is possible to keep up with. That said, this mix is definitely a hark back to 80′s house and a lot of it’s euro influences. Piano aplenty, as well as crisp drums, swirling synths and slinky basslines.
