one of house musics true originators, todd terry was first discovered by pioneering new york house imprint fourth floor records. now the label has collected four of his earliest and most essential productions on to one 12inch vinyl. the a-side houses a pair of tracks created under his black riot alias in 1988, both featuring his trademark raw, jacking drums. the unmistakable rave stabs on a day in the life were to reappear on countless hardcore records, testament to the tracks influence, whilst the cut-and-paste sample patchwork of warlock defines the house sound of that era. meanwhile, the b-side features two tracks as masters at work, a moniker that todd would later pass on to his friends little louie vega and kenny dope gonzalez. both alright alright and dum dum cry, originally released in 1987, exhibit terrys musical roots, combining hip-hop breakbeats, powerful electro-funk and playful freestyle melodies in his inimitable style.

positioned neatly between the twin worlds of modern jazz and eclectic nu-soul, zara mcfarlanes album confirms the presence of a very special young voice on the uk scene. the album exudes a liberal dose of subtle, stealthy swing, yet, as steeped as she is in the jazz tradition, zara has brought an eminently soul undercurrent to what she does, and her music will appeal to audiences weaned on jill scott and erykah badu as easily as to those more attuned to cassandra wilson or dianne reeves.
