Review: Soul Central return with ES002 - "Days Of Disco EP" following up Electric Shrine ES001 which firmly set the scene for this underground label, and sold out within a week of release, becoming an instant collectors piece and serious weapon for DJ's in the know.
Here we have a collection of raw Disco inspired cuts starting with "Just Friends" which is a serious neo soul stomper crowned with a prominent sing-a-long chorus. Whilst "Party Together" offers a relentless Boogie bass overload. Third inline comes "Your Smile" which takes the form of a sensitive Soul ballad vocal, adding in classic ascending strings and some modern House syncopation, turning in a deep journey laced with dancefloor dominating tones.
The final track "The Michigan Slide" is a real disco vibe that revisits a 300 year old Bach melody on Clavinet.
The complete EP is dusty, groovy and banging to say the least, maintaining a resounding quality that this standout UK act always deliver... great music that makes you want to dance.
