Keepin on...

There's a fair bit of love going down on some blogs for early Faze Action lately, count me in. Their album 'Plans & Designs' was, make that is, a real gem. Their second album 'Moving Cities' was given major accolades too, though i prefer their debut. Of course there's that Carl Craig remix of 'In The Trees' from Juno's 10 year thing, doing the rounds plus there are some unforgettable remixes done by Rob & Simon Lee back in the 90's. Their last album 'Broad Souls' signalled a major change in direction for them, it saw them heading for deeply contemplative head space downtempo territory, many fans were a little disappointed though there is no doubt about its quality. It just wasn't that Disco sound they're so good at. More recently they've been taking on dance floors again with two great singles; 'Keep it Coming' from last year and the very recent 'Stratus Energy', both of which have been white labels with limited runs. The Lee's don't do edits (well not so far) and produce all original material which manages to sound very modern while observing club music from the past, I'm really hoping for a new album. While I wait here's 'Keep it Coming', very nice!!!
