Summer may be over, but the sun is still shining in the studio of Spearhead Records' founder Steve "BCee" Jefroy. North Point, his fifth full length in six years, begins with a sparkling blast of soulful, sun-drenched D&B, and the positivity keeps on rolling throughout. While there are occasional deviations towards a punchier, crunchier and slightly darker sound (see "Armed & Dangerous" and the full-throttle jungle revivalism of "Hollow Eyes"), these merely add a little variety to an otherwise thrillingly upbeat and musically rich collection. Then again, when you've got the likes of Logistics, Dynamite MC, Riyah and Thomas Oliver lending a hand, you'd expect good vibes to all round.
