Ronald Burrell's second release as Equation on Nu-Groove is as deep as it gets.
We're talking late night NYC back room deepness, often imitated but never bettered.
"I'll Say A Prayer 4 U" is the lead track here, A sublime longing synth groove with a nagging bassline and crisp rimshots, A total "under the radar" anthem straight out of New York City circa 1991 and engineered by the equally as legendary Bobby Konders, a real undercover gem.
The other two cuts on the EP drive further into the night, "Domm Domm, Yeah Mm Hmm" is another dope basement groove, rocking some classic Burrell flavours, And "My Life" is a real down-tempo piece that reappropriates the Roy Ayers classic "My Life In The Sunshine" while giving it a real "100 BPM House" swing, don't snooze...
All in all this is another classic release from the Nu-Groove vaults, re-mastered and re-pressed here for the first time in conjunction with Nu-Groove Records and the Burrell Brothers. Essential.
