Review

Vick Lavender is best known as a member of Glenn Underground's Strictly Jaz Unit, but he's also a respected house producer in his own right. Following releases from Reekee, emergent label Wrong Notes welcomes Lavender into the fold for this stunning 12" of deep rooted soulful house, leading in with the full vocal mix of "Cosmic Love," where loose and limber instrumentation is lifted even higher by Angela A's honey-coated vocals. "Vick's Underground Dub" pushes the densely packed rhythms to the fore for a headier dancefloor brew, and then the final "Sophisticado Time Traveler" instrumental version gives the keys and chords space to shine.
