Glenn Underground – SJU

Big Glenn churned out dozens of killers in the mid-90s but saved some of the best for his pair of GU Essentials EPs for Cajual. This cut from the first volume in 1995 is a standout, with synthlines weaving around each other on top of gorgeous chords, underpinned by a weighty bassline and slamming drums. It’s a masterclass in how to do deep and melodic house without losing dancefloor energy and it’s another hardy perennial of my DJ box. On the flipside, Detroitism is in a similar vein and has dated equally well.
