Under the tutelage of founders Irfan 'Rainy' Hussain and Cyril 'Rex' Lyons, Rainy City Music has been contributing to Manchester's vibrant music scene for two decades, essentially adapting with the times into the digital age. As part of their 20th anniversary celebrations the label have issued this new 12" featuring four tracks by Irfan and Rex Leon, all lifted from their previously digital-only album. "Vodun (The Calling)" is simply tribal house music for lovers of the old school Jovonn sound, whilst "Smash The Silence (Afrobeat Power)" is a brand new version of previous digital only release where afro-beat and house combine for a MAW style dancefloor groove. Flip to the B-side and we have "Snoop's Story (Ode To The Wire)," which merges samples of the cult HBO show with '90s style NYC house, whilst "Manc Union Dub" pairs up ghostly Brazilian Candomble vibes with Rhythm & Sound.
