MR G - Unreleased Gemz Vol 3
12"Mr G is a real badman. The UK great always goes in hard with this sets and tunes - they're smoky, grainy grooves that lock you in deep for hours on end. For this year's Record Store Day he serves up a third volume of unreleased gold from his vaults. This one kicks off with a heavy sample from 'I Need A Freak' reworked into a late night and trippy tech house framework. 'Untitled 8' ups the ante with punchy and gritty techno loops, 'Tears Of Joy' then twists in some acid and last of all is the best fo the lot. It is tantalisingly short at under four minutes but is a body-shaking broken beat rhythm with heavy bass that makes you move your body right from the off.
