Review: DJ Apt-One dons his hairiest mane for more roaring Lion edits. And this time he's brought company. Fresh from collaborating with Soul Clap, here we find him in fine funk fettle with two more precision dug obscurities: "Keep On Hangin' On" is classic loopy filtered disco house finesse while "Finally" takes us deep into electro boogie heaven. Supamomo Jay Airiness takes the B for two equally XL party-sized joints: "Funky Situation" is a total carnival of percussion and slapbass magic while "Two Of Us" is all about the bumper-busting disco funk. Divine.
Review: Fresh from the success of their first split 12" on Diggin' Deeper, Michael The Lion and Jay Airiness return to the imprint with more hot-to-trot, dancefloor-ready re-edits. It's the former who handles side A with the bouncy, percussion-laden disco-funk romp that is "Direction NYC" (all razor-sharp Chic style guitars riffs, booming slap bass and dense drums) before putting his stamp on a hazy, horn-heavy disco stepper that should be familiar to a few dusty-fingered diggers. Airiness, on the other hand, starts his side with the trading horn solos, fluttering flutes, jazz-funk tropes and busy slap-bass of "Jazzy Mind", before reaching for the stars via the celebratory disco release of "Disco Dance".
