(15/45) Monsieur Mango gets straight to the beating heart and soul of the US house experience on the A-side with the sublime "Talk 2 Here". Gentle acoustic guitars melt slowly into thick, loose rhodes chords and held 101 licks while a choice vocal loop from Womack & Womack's Frankie Knuckles produced "MPB" holds the whole thing together. This is proper house music, blessed with the kind of clear uncomplicated arrangement which allows the quality of its parts shine through. Over on the flipside we're treated to a body moving excercise in warehouse disco thanks to the bass heavy bang of "Drumspeak". Held strings, chord stabs & bubbling filters overlap and interact while the weighty drums carry the whole track on their broad shoulders. As the sample emerges through the blur of a filter, a sleazy vocal snippet of some street corner business takes your hand for the dancefloor payoff.
