Even with such a hefty back-catalogue of classic Detroit tunes, this E.P. by KDJ may well be my favourite! Simply brilliant.

what system do you use? must have a decent amp/ preamp mixer & speakers at least I have a Urei 1620LE & use ADAM A5x powered monitors through a balanced signal. Simple but effective..... makes anything sounds good

"January" samples the intro chords of "Stefano Pulga - Superflight" (1979).

Hypnotic sublime analog machine funk. Winter Breeze/January. Moody, & F**ing brilliant. Poor sound quality? Get a life! The whole 12" is of absurd soulful darkness. Top 3 Kenny releases this is in, no messin.

Came across this today and gave it a go. Vinyl / MP3 transfer for sure. Doesn't sound great. Had to avoid unfortunately

this is a poor record, not one track i would give above 3/10 to. every cut is based around sampling obvious disco/soul like george benson "give me the night" (i can hear geraldine hunt in there) but its all completely out of tune and painfully discordant/dense - like an out of key blend in a dj mix. it's although the producer has randomly grabbed a pile of records then sampled them and shoe horned them together with no musicality or attempt to find samples in the same key. i totally understand why its rare, as its not very good and i'm sure it didn't sell very well as a new release. if it wasn't moody man (who has gone on to make some better music) then no one would remember this. it does make me wonder about people's taste when you read the reviews here. i guess rarity and supposedly cool producer blind people of maybe they like really badly put together disco samples?

I bought this & I thought the sound was pretty poor

Own both, cannot discern any significant difference in sound quality between the two. They are certainly not Youtube rips.

It sounds amazing. Have club proof of people going crazy on the record.
