Review: Colin McBean aka Mr G is back with another full length. We know what you're thinking; it's probably awesome? Well duh! Damn right it is, so here's more with the good news; several tracks of slamming tech funk that this man is renowned for and it's all killer. First track "Entrance" is the soundtrack to a techno aerobics class, take a listen! "Sub Level 3 (G's Freak Zone)" uses a nasty arpeggio untypical of his previous work but those strings that come in are just epic! "Interlude @ ?" keeps on with his typical sense of humour and in sound with its tough and dirty sense of funk that's so emotive at the same time. "Thrust" is proper peak time business that reminds you why he was once one half of The Advent; banging, doom laden hard groove.
Review: Techno legend Colin McBean aka Mr G presents to us young Birmingham producer Jayson Wynters and what a debut this is! Starting out with the minimal and atmospheric dustiness of "Momentum" that's reminiscent of Fred P's finer moments, he gets stuck in with "Unfamiliar Territory" which explores the soulful techno sounds of early 90's Detroit; very nice indeed. On the flip he delves deeper with the bumpy yet emotive "Science" while "More" hammers the message home in even more emotional and bittersweet fashion, calling to mind the classic sound of Prescription Records. Tip!
Review: After last year's killer Record Store Day edition featuring the Relative affiliated Vinalog, UK techno legend Colin McBean aka Mr G flies solo on this year's special installment with this wicked four tracker on his esteemed Phoenix G imprint. RSD 2020 features the soulful vocals and breakbeat action of 'Bands Tight' (4 Henry) and the moody, heads-down stomper that is 'Stinger 2' on the A side, followed by the loose and low-slung after hours vibe of 'The DJ' on the flip, and ending with the evocative and atmospheric slow burner 'Song For My Forefathers'.
