9/10 Brian Staff review, 31 March 2011
This guy has got an undeniable amount of funk. His productions are really deep & sublime - they strut & preen through the neon stained city streets at night. Some of his best work has a faint similarity to Scuba but I think I prefer the Dutch numerically monikered one's productions as there's a bit more consistency and I really like the Urban technoid sound he lays down. His attention to detail is riveting & also the bass maneuvers here are the stuff of dreams. Surprisingly, 'Fever' is intended as a disco-inspired album, entirely constructed with samples from old disco records, like an interpretive travelogue stretching from his childhood of sorts. Sure the grinding groove and sweet chink of hi-hats are blatantly present - that ecstatic dancefloor stuffing element is blatantly here in spades - but there's none of the disposability and cheesiness of disco. Nothing remotely retro or "swinging". This is a very dense, muscular & atmospheric form of bass-driven club music with a strong futuristic bent & absolutely huggins of atmosphere. It's surely amongst the best material i've heard him produce and I also want to know why they've used a picture of an infant Anthony on the sleeve. Wicked progressive tunes for the feet & the mind! My head is now a disco inferno.....
