Something about this record cover screams "private press gold" without giving away what's going on in between the grooves.

Turns out it's in one of my favourites veins of Dark Entries archival releases: things on the periphery of the initial wave of US House or Techno (Risque III and Sexual Harassment come to mind), that retains traces of disco with a touch of homespun intimacy.

Here we have Inner City (of Big Fun and Good Life fame) associate Art Forest and vocalist Shawn Pittamn lay down an infectious slow burning electro-r'n'b on the a-side, 'Dreams'. I only heard it yesterday but am boldly claiming it as an all-timer! The b-side is closer to the jackin' club track you'd expect from the lineage, enjoyable but less of a revelation for me. - Nic
