Various - Need2Soul V.02 (Need2Soul)

London based nocturnal soiree throwers and record purveyors Need2Soul present their second compilation, which explores house, broken and other soulful territory. Known for putting on nights with celebrated disc jockeys, one would expect heavyweight spinners to select the music for this compilation and they appear in the shape of Londoner Benji B of 1Xtra fame and Chicago deep master Glenn Underground. Benji brings the goods in an across the board mix that features classy efforts such as Âme’s cool Hydraulic Dog, Carl Craig’s arresting revision of Cesaria Evora’s Angola and Yew’s understated Where Would You Be? Mr. Underground’s mix is heavy on the jazzy garnishing and features house gems such as YMC’s stargazing Nu Vibration, Nick Holder’s gorgeous Summer Daze and Moodymann’s frightening J.A.N. Need2Soul give a good account of themselves and their musical ideals with this compilation.
