Having previously plied his trade on Ibadan's tech-house flavoured Apotek offshoot (often in the company of Jerome Sydenham), Janne Tavi has finally been given his chance on the parent label. It comes courtesy of Robert Owens collaboration "The Other Man", a sumptuous chunk of classic house dripping in life-affirming piano solos, sweeping strings, driving drumbeats and sumptuous, soulful vocals. The headline remixes come courtesy of Kerri Chandler, who serves up vocal and instrumental versions seemingly inspired by Owens' work with Larry Heard as Fingers Inc (think analogue bass, rolling drum machine rhythms and sensual electronics). Tavi's own Vocal Dub - booming, bumping and stripped back - completes an essential package.
