Probably the most underrated deep house record of all time. Gumbo is a masterpiece. This is deep house!!! Thank you Si Brad and Co for this!

This is truly one of my favourite deep house records of all time. Every time I listen to it, I hear something new, some little detail I never noticed before. Beautiful production, so crisp and clear, but warm and full at the same time, blending techy precision with deep house emotion. 'Gumbo' has little melodies in the percussion, beneath all its delicate interwoven intricacies, and the overall mood of this track is so sweet: if you're having a bad day, put this track on and the world will seem like a much brighter place. A smile is almost guaranteed. 'Custard Gannet' has a slightly darker vibe initially, but it develops soon enough and fully earns its title. Works well on the floor, too. The Blooty Mix is a useful bridging tool and has slightly progressive edge. The Toko boys must have been truly inspired when they penned these tracks. A very very special record, and for me, spiritual deep house at its finest.
