About this item
Night Theatre is a new label from Linkwood dedicated to serving dancers and deejays alike. It's been quite some time since we've seen this stalwart of 'second wave' UK deep house put his name to something, and what a break from the hiatus!
"A" treads a line similar to Vakula's Leleka excursions: dreamy, thick with synth haze and powered by the vintage rhythms of house music. A fluffy bassline seals the deal for complete immersion as a gentle cerebral perc line tickles any remaining and unattended erogenous regions.
"B" sees a barrage of tribal drums converge on shamanic wails and rainforest chatter; conjuring up a fiery slice of dancefloor voodoo that's so on point you could sharpen a pencil with it.
Two completely absorbing pieces for the right now and beyond; and a fantastic return from this UK legend. Totally recommended.
Matt says: Linkwood's back and he's ready to dance. It's hard to ignore side B's wigged out attack of tribal percussion, especially with carnival season just round the corner!
