Sandy Turnbull serves up a pleasingly varied three-tracker on his own label

Three pleasingly varied tracks here from Sheffield house producer, ex-Gatecrasher resident and sometime Danny Krivit collaborator Sandy Turnbull, coming on his own Galleria Records label.

After Comiskey Park itself is up first. As you'd expect, the spoken vocal deals with the infamous 'Disco Demolition' that took place at the Chicago baseball stadium in 1979, so it's appropriate that there's a distinct disco-house feel to the track with its full-phat, funky-ass b-line, filtered piano licks and driving 4/4s. Yeah, That follows, a more stripped n' strutty houser with soulful male vocal cut-ups, before finally we come to Get Into, which rocks off-kilter drums and heavily filtered vox in a way that's reminiscent of early Cajual releases, albeit with a lower BPM count.

House jocks of many persuasions from jackin' to soulful should find something to play here, so Mr Turnbull can safely the tick the box that says "Job: done".
