This may be Mr. Lee's finest moment ever, or at least, the finest release of his I have listened to. The EP opens with the classic, block bustin' Art Of Acid, a lenghty stomper, with fat and loud drum kicks and amazing acid sweeps throughout. No samples, no vocals, just pure old schhol gravy - from great and groovy drive through to some proper vintage acid.
Feels Good does just that, with a scratched in sample saying "feels good fee-fee-feels good. Get down!" with deep and playful acid synths. The kick is ground shaking, I can really imagine this one doing heavy damage all across old warehouses back in the day.
Last track is the London dedicated anthem, which would end up becoming a world hit, and is known for its uplifting "pump it up" vocal snippet, followed by many shout outs to cities and posses across the UK. The catchy acid line is thrown in for some good measure, so is the phat beat.
Overall, this is vintage acid house. With simple and effective layers of 303, pumping and club rocking beats, great and effective use of vocals, it is reasonable to believe that this record way a major club chart hit about two decades ago. It's not my favorite acid house record of all time, in fact it doesn't even cut the top ten list, but given the fact it hasn't become that volatile and rare throughout the years, you might want to pick it up if you are eager to snoop around the old school acid house scene! It shouldn't be hard to track it down for a reasonable price.
