Recent reissues of early Chicago house tracks have offered a neat reminder of Frankie Knuckles' production skills. Now, in case we doubted his ability to keep churning out twinkling house hits, Nocturnal Groove have invited him to curate a double CD featuring many of his recent tracks and remixes under the Director's Cut moniker. Knuckles' sound - soulful, warm, expansive and undoubtedly classic - still resonates, even it has barely changed in the last two decades. For those who enjoy it, Tales Beyond The Tone Arm should be essential listening. There are nods to his past - remixes of classics such as "Your Love" and "The Whistle Song", a cover of Sylvester's "You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)" - alongside a string of unreleased tracks.
