bargrooves: metropolitan v.13

bargrooves: metropolitan v.13

Another collection of potent house music tucked away from the glare of the mainstream, metropolitan presents two tightly-packed mixes, drenched in jazz touches and warm, propelling beats. Compiled by Ben Sowton and the Soul Avengerz, this is another great combination of classics and future classics.
“bargrooves is as reliable for great compilations as Fatboy Slim is for wearing tacky shirts” Daily Record
Following on from the sublimely summery mimosa, bargrooves continues with the ‘taste and tastemakers’ quartet, to bring you Metropolitan – the perfect soundtrack to the early evenings and autumnal tones of fall. This time, bargrooves boss Ben Sowton has invited the Soul Avengerz to guest mix CD2. Ben turns in a beautifully melodic mix, with highlight tracks and mixes from Atjazz, Physics and Soldiers of Twilight, and The Soul Avengerz up the pace a little with a mix that fits right in with the bargrooves vibe. Their mix includes some of their own exclusive material and remixes, as well as tracks from Wave, Soulfuric, Defected and Susu.
