"Balance" contains vocal samples of "Will King - Backed Up Against The Wall" (1985).

Back in the day I used to be a huge Mr. G fan. He was, simply put, probably my favorite producer at times but then as time passed by I started to feel that he wasn't able to change his game. The whole Phoenix G, whatever labels, sounded the same. It was a shame because I felt that most Mr. G productions usually had that "it" feeling to it. I have no recollection how I heard about this, where, when. Soon after its release? Before? No, I can't remember. Point being, 'Balance' is a perfect piece of house music. It has some resemble to those older Mr. G productions but it manages to stand out - a mile ahead. Very valuable release? Sure. His best production ever? No, I don't think so. Then again, I was a big fan years ago so that might an effect on my evaluation but this was a sure sign that Mr. McBean was no more prisoner of his past. He was able to adapt, change his game. That Rekids stuff and all? No, don't pay attention to any of that. This is the proof why Mr. McBean is still relevant. And, you just might want to try to listen to his productions, let's say pre-2001 or 2002 or so. If you can't hear that "it" factor from the past, don't worry. This one should be able to do that.

Ah, the pleasure of a simple, intense, elegant, pure deep house moment on the dancefloor. All the right ingredients are here, soulful but tight vocal samples, dreamy but not too insistent pads, a simple but perfectly crafted groove, consistent tension and dynamics yet really breathing, subtle narrative progression...what can i say, Mr G's "Balance" has it all as far as i'm concerned. If this is not deep house perfection, then we are really close.
