The Naked sound in all its glory – a swirling batch of soulful clubby numbers, done with lots of smooth touches! The set features some of the most sought-after singles from the well-known Naked Music imprint – including some rare remixes and b-sides, all presented together as an introduction to the label's classic-styled grooves. Titles include "Let It Ride (Jimpster remix)" by Lisa Shaw, "Blow My Mind" by Gonky Business, "Rely On Me (Jay's bodega voc)" by Petalpusher, "All Over Your (2B4U rmx)" by Aquanote, "Try (Fenomenon rmx)" by Arvid, "All I Need (Jimpster rmx)" by Blue Six, and "Inside" by Central Living. CD
A smooth set of soulful grooves – all very much in the Naked Music tradition (sensual sound, packaged in a cartoony cover with a naked girl – you know the deal!) Miguel Migs blends a range of current tracks that span the groove between house and soul – all quite pleasant, and sliding together with ease. Titles include "Highly Strung" by Headstock, "Happiness is Free" by Onda, "Endless Bow (Jimpster rmx)" by Hajime Yoshizawa, "Release" by Mindflight, "Atmospheric Beats (orig ext)" by Kerri Chandler, "The Dream (deep dreamer dub)" by Fusion Groove Orchestra & Simon Green, and "Tango Sed (Ron Trent drum mix)" by Batidos. CD
A great album from this groovy French combo! While some tracks channel Pink Floyd a bit, many of their usual atmospherics are dusted off with fairly jazzy instrumentation and post-Bacharach arrangements. Gordon Tracks sings guest vocals on "Playground Love" and the whole thing's got a beautiful airy 60s pop style to it – tracks include "Clouds Up", "Bathroom Girl", "Cemetary Party", "Dirty Trip", "Highschool Lover (Theme From The Virgin Suicides)", "Afternoon Sister", "Ghost Song", and "Dead Bodies". Pretty heady titles. LP, Vinyl record album
