A prolific machine, J. Albert returns with a brand new 12” on Black Opal. Kiss The Ground opens the record with a vocal sample and a simple 4/4 beat that gradually morphs into the sporadic crackling sound of a bonfire before smashing back into a thumping 4/4 handclap. Simple but effective house music. Out on vinyl 12” from Black Opal. In black with handstamp. Limited to 300 copies.

8/10 Staff review, 19 June 2015

Here we have four cuts of no frills WareHOUSE music for Disc Jockey’s from J. Albert on Opal Tapes sister label Black Opal. “Kiss The Ground” sounds like it could have been retrieved from dusty cassettes found in the basements of Vince Lawrence and Jesse Saunders -- a stripped back syrupy stomp of chunky kicks, dry 909 claps, swishy rides, rattling snares and pitched down male/ female vocal samples/ loops.

“We Know” gets freaky/ funky with sampled double bass and piano -- the sorta track I can imagine the likes of Theo Parrish or Moodymann dropping... maybe even Marquis Hawkes or the likes of DJ Sneak.

‘M15 (Ivy Mix)’ is a dreamy thumper with an almost Balearic feel. The one for me is ‘Hold Your Breath’ with it’s DBX ‘Losing Control’ style tripping balls headfuck vocal loop, fist pumping drums, infectious bassline and melancholy synth giving me that gooey feeling you only get with real house music
