This 2nd release from this recently formed international collective of producers, musicians and DJs from the US, UK and EU continue with their edgy, jazzy but lo-fi sound that featured on Vol. 1 which had plays from Gilles Peterson, Francois K and Fouk. Vol. 2 includes 'Knocking On The Door Of The Cosmos' which seeks inspiration from high priest Sun Ra, with its rich synth parts and Rhodes electric piano. DJ friendly 'Payback' includes numerous short sample edits and vocal chops, while 'Son of Equinox' is a musician heavy jazz-funk cut with layers of trumpet, live bass and drums being reminiscent of Louie Vegas' Elements of Life work. 'Theme For Chicago' offers the Windy City a Roy Ayers-inspired bouncy head nod tribute containing just the right amount of dirt which is as inspired by Detroit as it is Chicago. And finally there's an added 'Bonus Beats' like it's 1983.

This third release on City Volts Records from the international producer and DJ collective sees West Loop Chicago channelling their inner Herbie Hancock and The Headhunters for this heavily jazz-fusion influenced record. The A-Side features 'The Serpent', a frantic analogue synth dance floor gem with its Mini Moog and Oberheim OB-6 parts leading the charge, a track very much inspired by Herbie's 'Chameleon' and Barry Miles' 'Magic Theater' from 1975, a Gilles Peterson/Dingwalls standard. The B-side includes 'Divinity', a more soulful affair with its delicious Fender Rhodes chords and atmospheric piano solos, which furthermore highlights the high level of musicianship contained within the 12". Both tracks also feature their respective bonus beats versions with 'Serpentine Bonus Beats' and 'Divine Bonus Beats' providing the rhythm tracks for both.

New project alert for this experienced duo with a deep history from playing Hammond organ for Robert Plant, releasing 12"s on MAW's Kenlou Records and playing weekly six hour vinyl DJ sets, with 20+ years experience WLC have come full circle for this diverse EP. "Give You More" is a MPC house groover with KDJ-esque jazz-funk loops and vocal sample chops while "Miami Rice & Peas" centres around Latin piano motifs. "Everybody's A Star" replays the classic Minnie Riperton "Inside My Love" chord progression but with added vocals and disco flavours and "Which Way Is Detroit?" fuses broken beat, techno, live keys and electric bass with a pulsating breakbeat. Finally, the bouncy "Five Soul Chords" utilises some J Dilla swing combined with warm analogue synth programming. Highly recommended.
