Fresh from inaugurating his own eponymous label, Sheffield producer and selector Al Zanders lands a debut on the mighty Wolf Music in the shape of Second To None. A confident title is matched by the calibre of productions across these four Zanders cuts, rife with the joyful vibe, rich instrumentation and canny samples we've come to expect from the Wolf stable. You can just tell the Wolf crew had no trouble deciding on the lead track with "Second To None" blissfully rattling from outright house pandemonium to serenity and back with aplomb, with the Bradock-style brushed soul deepness of "Taxi Co" just as memorable. "A Beat Is Not A Lovesong" sees Zanders toy around with a vocal sample brilliantly whilst "A Story Of..." is the epitome of a B2 slow burner.
