Alex Reece, the vanguard of jazzstep (when such distinctions actually meant something), only released one major label album, SO FAR, but what an album it is. "Feel the Sunshine," dives head first into the funky bassline, with Deborah Anderson's sultry vocals floating above, and "Out of Time" similarly emphasizes the thick double-bass. "Acid Lab," on the other hand, puts more of a tech spin on things, and "Pulp Friction," in particular, has a growling bass to accompany the horn flourishes, but it's certainly the darkest track here. But fear not: the R&B tinged "Candles" brings the mood back up with ease, and "Ibiza" brings the summer right into your home. But, for me, the best track is still "Jazz Msater," a buoyant track that starts with a languorous horn fanfare before the good feeling kicks in full-time. The keyboard is exceptionally perky, and the whole thing is toe-tapping fun. It's a pity Alex Reece didn't go further.

Ibiza

Even its name oozes the summery feel that this track contains by the bucket load. Alex Reece, has clearly brought his House music influences and its obvious connections with Ibiza into this tune, with bouncy two-stepping beats and a catchy synth riff - simple but very, very effective, especially at the breakdown, midway, with just the riff playing. Sounds best when played on a hot summers day with the car windows down while cruising along the motorway, preferably going somewhere nice! Sounds worst when played during the winter as it makes me long for the summer even more than usual.

Funny thing about this album is that I bought it when it came out, I wasn't really feeling it. But then about a year ago I started listening to it again and WOW! it's magic. Smooth rhythms and a crisp fresh sound that makes it essential. His new project Fallen Angels 21 hasn't been able to follow the quality of this album, but that isn't an easy task either.
