This release features the three original Mood II Swing productions from that Freetown 12?; the iconic The Groove Mix, the deep-house induced NY Mix and JC's Ecstasy Dub providing more stomp with a booming bassline. Celebrated pioneering French producer Francois K features with his very special 'Groove Mix Edit'. The much-loved London-based duo restless soul, formed by Phil Asher and Luke McCarty, present their Ragtime Mix which incorporates broken beat elements before dropping into a cool house groove, whilst the Rufftime Mix is a straight up house music with that signature restless soul West London flavour. Louie Balo offers a warehouse-influenced dub more exemplified of today's modern tech house sound. Washington DC DJ Jean-Philippe Aviance rounds off the release with his accapella version of the track.
