Having recently flexed his deep house muscles with a couple of fine EPs on Local Talk and City Fly, Alexander Lay-Far returns to the world of the disco re-edit with an excellent three-tracker on Basic Fingers. Pleasingly, his edits are sympathetic to the source material, and there's no hint of additional house kicks or needless effects. Arguably the highlight is "Saaba Dub", an excellent instrumental revision of an Afro-reggae classic from 1970s fusionists Light of Saba. He also dips his toe into dancefloor-friendly prog rock with the sprawling "Prime Climate", while "Quality Hours" works a spirtual jazz-funk groove - complete with Rhodes and flute solos aplenty - within an inch of its' life.
