Jamie Jones, Lee Foss, Luca C, and Ali Love have each already made a name for themselves within the house music world. Jamie Jones and Lee Foss both founded the influential label Hot Creations and are also highly respected DJs on their own. Luca C and Ali Love are together the UK duo Infinity Ink, who have released their club-friendly house hits on both Hot Creations and Crosstown Rebels.
You may already be familiar with the album’s first single, Reverse Skydiving, which infiltrated dancefloors this summer and inspired a slew of notable remixes. The rest of the album follows in the same vein: catchy vocals and disco synths breezing over classic Detroit-inspired beats. The quartet created the album based on the concept of transcendence through music, featuring the overarching theme of celestial spirituality and Egyptian pharaohs. Ali Love lends his pop-friendly vocals to many of the tracks, with additional cameos from Kenny Glasgow of Art Department, Anabel Englund, and Roisin Murphy.
Musical supergroups are often created with the misguided assumption that multiple talented musicians together will automatically conceive phenomenal music–but history has shown that this is not always the case. To decide for yourself whether or not this promising group has succeeded in creating dance music gold, you can stream the album at Pitchfork or purchase it on iTunes. Either way, expect many of these tracks to be regular club and radio hits.
