Various – Moda Black Vol II (Mixed By Jaymo & Andy George) – Moda Black

Following on from the award winning Volume 1 Jaymo & Andy George once again push the envelope forward with all that’s finest in House music right now. Just reading the track list feels exciting in itself with the impressive selection taking in the currently hot such as Huxley, Ejeca and Walker & Royce amongst many significant others. Ben Pearce kicks it all off with another excellent production in ‘Pale Ale’ as the mix proceeds to probe between dark and heavy territory, and its more uplifting counterpart. Lots of special mentions here but has to be said that Hot Since 82 & Habischman’s ‘Leave Me’ is particularly notable. You could indeed say there’s something for everyone, which is certainly true, as the music traverses a rich assortment of styles and rhythms that perfectly capture the mood of the moment.
