Retro refinery

Aside from the obligatory ‘Intro’, a retro disco diva sample, you’d be forgiven for expecting Glaswegians Craig Smith and Graeme ‘The Revenge’ Clark to venture further into unchartered territory after hearing ‘Our Love’, a slightly offbeat future funk track closer to Letherette than the majority of warm, stodgy slo mo disco found on their 2011 debut LP under the same moniker, ‘One Night In the Borough’.

However, with ‘U Know U’ it’s back to business as usual, but that’s no complaint. There are few in the game better at languid disco with a vintage feel and ‘Think It Over’ is 112bpm sample-based dancefloor fodder at its finest.

'In Your Arms’ is nothing but glitter-ball class, while ‘Through the Night’ is lumbering funk with soulful strings made for no other reason than to encourage us to turn the lights low and make babies. ‘The Call Back’ is more of the same, but even more seductive, borrowing from the Prelude Records school of boogie, whereas ‘Read My Mind’ is throbbing indigo house built on a bassline Carl Craig would be proud of.

Indicative of dark, underground pub basements with low level ceilings, 6th Borough Project’s second album once again boils the original sounds of New York, Detroit and Chicago down to their finer elements, stripping them back and laying them out into a linear 4/4 house formula. Steady, sexy and sophisticated, ‘Borough 2 Borough’ presents yet another solid handbook, and you’d be a silly billy to miss it. Adam Saville
