Ron Obvious? Not yet by any means! This mysterious producer appears for the fifth edition of the equally mysterious London imprint L.B. Produce. Reseda Drive In could possibly be hint that the producer comes from the outer suburbs of Los Angeles, because he certainly ain't the legendary punk rock studio engineer of the same name. And besides: this stuff sounds almost authentically mid nineties Chicago anyway, such on the brilliantly sombre and emotive opener that is the title track with those Frankie Knuckles style keys. "Soul Company" sounds more NYC actually, on this sexy and swing fuelled jam that's well funky too. On the flip, "The Phantom Self" gets dark and somewhat hypnotic; you could imagine Thomas Melchior playing something like this, it's really great.
