The Wilson imprint deliver the goods once again with their third release, the first in a series of "Split Grooves" that brandishes a pair of classicist house productions from label boss Fabio Monesi and Spanish producer Kastil. Monesi was ever-present on Wilson this year, impressing with his obvious passion and understanding of the key elements that make 90s era deep house so seminal and demonstrated he's got the production talent to implement it within his own tracks. The status quo is retained here, with the relentlessly joyous and uplifting pump of "Jampad One" complemented by the thicker, gut punching groove and tight key play of "Let's Go Back". Previously Kastil has dabbled in both disco flecked and muscle flexing house productions, and his two bumping efforts here sit resolutely in the latter camp, demonstrating a craft for utilising vocal samples and classic melodic motifs which fit perfectly within the Wilson ethos.
