Reel Houze are/were Dominic Dawson and Rob Mello. This two tracker on the eternally hip Optimo Music is a reissue of a cut originally released in 1996. Time has been kind and, even though these tracks are pushing the twenty year limit, there's a timeless quality to their dubbed out disco chic. Apparently featuring percussion played on a toilet seat, the shackles have been removed on this floor pleasing, hypnotising, crate digging saviour.

9/10 Staff review, 14 November 2014

Despite these two spangled disco dubs leaving you change from a fiver should you seek the Zoot originals out on disposable-income-black-hole Discogs, Optimo move on to plate number two of their newly minted series with a collated ’96 reissue that’s all about shining the swirling spotlight once again onto a pair of sweaty, rugged and essential party tracks, lest they spend too much time in the dark working each other up into a hundred degree lather.

 If the loose Paradise Garage haze of ‘The Chance’ immediately has Dinosaur L’s ‘Go Bang’ loping into mind, it’s because a sample of the Arthur Russell classic provides the hypnotic foundations over which Rob Mello goes into orbit with a Cloud One Moog solo that will have Patrick Adams fans nodding earnestly with reverent drool falling onto their shoes.  DJ Harvey backs him admirably by working a toilet seat up into a frenzy.  The track has that streamlined feel of the contemporary re-edit, but still wouldn’t sound out of place between the famed Francois K and Walter Gibbons versions that equally harnessed the feral whoops of the original and channelled their energy into tantalising heat-drenched dancefloor mercury.

 The spaced-out wooze continues on the flip with ‘No Difference’, a satisfyingly hefty and impressively modern-sounding psychedelic boogie that melds the Raw Cuts sound of Motor City Drum Ensemble with a DJ Sotofett lobe-melter, strutting over a decade ahead of its time.
