Melt featuring Little Ms Marcie
Hard House Music[I](Code Blue)[/I]
After 18 months of insipid trance overload, how refreshing to hear a commercial dance record with stomping house beats and a lung-bursting diva demanding aural pleasure rather than sappy cod-religious fluffiness from her music. Despite being mixed by the chappy who spun ATB and [a]Gabrielle[/a] to their dizzy heights, ‘Hard House Music’ sounds like [a]Basement Jaxx[/a]after a punishing rub-down with sandpaper. A record which insists you listen and slaps you around the face if you don’t. It’s hard, it’s house, and it does exactly what it says on the tin. Respect.
