very classic sounding deep house from brian harden. the crown jewel of his album get gets the re-rub from label honcho mike grant. haunting sounds from the past that feel like old frankie knunke sets, this is bringing back the deep sound that is re-establishing detroit again as a major force in house music. mikeís throw downís are really smoked out, blending soulful strings and chunky beats that meet with pure emotion from the blinding rhodes solos. very moodyman/ ron trent.
