Jamie McHugh – Mind Games (Underwater)
Darren Emerson’s Underwater imprint is a dancefloor orientated label, so it comes as no surprise that this debut album from Jamie McHugh has been produced with club play in mind and doesn‘t shy away from the floor. The key cuts on the album sound pretty electrifying when heard at home, but they would sound even better on a proper club system. The ‘calmer’ tracks on the album such as the mind-bending Straight Up would provide perfect warm up material, whilst efforts such as the synth driven I Get Deep and acid dripping Lunar are peaktime stormers. There is a short interlude towards the end, but this is an unashamed clubbing soundtrack that will go down a storm.
