It's been a little while since we've heard from 6th Borough Project, the Scottish duo of Craig Smith and Graeme Clark (bka The Revenge). The duo's initial album, One Night In The Borough, helped usher in an new era of disco edit based house. From there they've turned in a bunch of remixes along with working on solo projects. Three years on and they've returned with Borough 2 Borough, an album of disco based house that's sure to please those who've been left wanting. If you're a fan of acts like Tiger & Woods and Motor City Drum Ensemble you'll definitely be happy with 6th Borough's latest. There's plenty of samples coupled with what feels like live instrumentation and an impeccable hand at the controls. The sound is smooth, but not too smooth, as there's a good amount of soul bubbling beneath the surface. 6th Borough takes you on an inspired ride, from the slo-mo soul disco of "Through The Night" to the more Chicago styled "Read My Mind." They close things out on a classically funky note with "Walk Away." With Borough To Borough they've taken a welcome turn towards a more house oriented direction. Includes free CD of the album.
