We should perhaps rename the Glenview label Glennview for their latest release in honour of the fact they've scored a debut from famed Chicago producer Glenn Underground. When you have a record from the Strictly Jaz Unit founder in your mitts, you know you are holding quality and that's certainly the case with the richly rewarding Smoke 12". From the moment you touch start on your 1210, this record breathes deep house authenticity with the title track a luscious exercise in melodic and soulful deepness that goes in on the Rhodes! An accompanying "Beats" version of "Smoke" offers a masterclass in stripped down rhythms from Mr Glenn Crocker whilst the B Side is dedicated to "The Soft Drink" which is both sensual and has a killer broken rhythm track that would prick the ears of Dego or Theo Parrish.
