        Listening back to this in 2020, the rawness and lo-fi style of production is even more striking than when it came out! In an age of DAWs and streamlined, sterile sheen and digital gloss, this here is like a dirty throwback to the analog 1900s.

        “Twin Cities”… What gives the track its special “Theo” flavor, are the melancholy chords coming in at 4:20. Suddenly the mood of the track changes to something more introspective, wistful and quite elegant. To me, it’s a sign of deep musicality to add a layer like that, when most run-of-the-mill producers would have been content with only the dope jazz loop, bass, and percussion.

          "Dance Sing" is certainly familiar territory for Theo, it's more like his older stuff than most of the tunes he's recently been releasing. I know Rick Wade was sitting on these trax for years before putting them out so that might be why. "Twin Cities", on the other hand, is Theo's ode to his two hometowns: Chicago, the place he was born and raised and Detroit, the place in which he now resides. Mixing the Chi-town trackiness with the Detroit chords works very well on this cut, definitely a dancefloor mover. I dare say this record should be considered essential for any Theo fan, to me it best shows his influences.

            Forget the A side, a looped up funky break which doesn't really go anywhere & head straight for the B side. 'Dance Sing' is one of those hypnotic slow-burning grooves which Theo does so well. Driving percussion, whispering vocals, delicate piano keys & a booming bassline melded together into the deepest of tracks which you'll find yourself returning to again & again.
