The Imogen label launched back in September with a pair of Ilija Rudman remixes of London Acid Jazz favourite Brand New Heavies. This second release sees them change tack somewhat, adopting an archival focus to dig out two tracks by Croatian hero Ilan Kabiljo. Known mostly for his '90s work, Kabiljo comes from legendary Croatian music stock - his father was composer and musician Alfons 'Alfi' Kabiljo. This Expression 12" sees Imogen dig through the Ilan archives for two rare and unreleased tracks records in 1990, with A side cut "Cool Nights" a supple midnight saunter through jazz funk that highlights Kabiljo's compositional class. "Golden Days" is just as good as sounds like a loving homage to the '80s.
