New Light
Early '90s progressive has become one of the great forgotten genres of house, a strange development considering the impact it had at the time. As ever, a lack of songs and real artists probably did for it in the end. There were a few who got away, though. Sasha may be the most obvious, but now Guerilla Records pioneers Spooky are back with a new label and a new sound. 'New Light' is a more mellow, more introspective Spooky than of old and arguably much the better for it. The 'Original Mix', complete with female vocal and acoustic guitars, is the sort of melody with beats that Groove Armada or Moloko might do, while the 'Strobelight Mix' strikes a more bombastic club attitude. Wonderful.
