Naturalmente (limited 12")
Cat: GDTIMIN 004. Rel: 09 Mar 15
 
Disco/Nu-Disco
  1. Naturalmente
  2. Timekeeper
  3. Slumber Dance
  4. Slumber Dub
Review: The fourth release on the Good Timin' label is a four-tracker from Conga Radioia project helmed by Jex and his pal Roberto. With sun and synth echoing the first trio of Good Timin' joints, the Conga project pushes the palette into Burrell territory, thanks to Roberto's 20-year tenure as a DJ and producer in Toronto. the A-side features the flute and guitar-driven tropic-not-tropic of "Naturalmente" and the robotic, Hancock-meets-acid vibes of "Timekeeper." The flip stretches out with two versions of "Slumber Dance," which takes its cue from the Nu Groove years but balances the gritty beats with plenty of New Age glory.

Earth Boy (12")

Techno
  1. Earth Boy (6:23)
  2. Desolation (dub) (6:12)
  3. Desolation (vocal) (6:12)
Review: After a six-month hiatus, synth-wielding proto-house and boogie badman Jex Opolis returns via a first ever appearance on well-regarded Dutch imprint Dekmantel. Interestingly, the Good Timin' boss has mixed things up a little here, seemingly drawing as much influence from mid-'80s European synth-pop as NYC electro and synth-powered electrofunk. A-side "Earth Boy" is particularly good, with Jex Opolis layering waves of sun-kissed electronics and cheery synth-pop melodies atop a rolling electro rhythm. Those after something altogether sleazier should check the two flipside versions of "Desolation", a throbbing affair that sits somewhere between Bobby O's forgotten productions for the Pet Shop Boys, UK Hi-NRG and life-affirming Italo-disco.

Disco/Nu-Disco
  1. First Stomp (NYC dub) (8:20)
  2. First Stomp (vocal Up mix) (5:48)
Review: "First Stomp", a bubbly chunk of Clavinet-laden electrofunk/Balearic fusion with Latin influences and clear nods to proto-house, was one of the highlights of Jex Opolis's recent debut album, Ravines. Here it gets the remix treatment, with the producer himself delivering a pair of club-ready interpretations. On the A-side you'll find the dreamy but club-ready "NYC Dub", a swirling, dreamy and loved-up affair that makes greater use of the original's Latin chants as well as some fresh new cowbell rhythms. The B-side "Vocal UP Mix" is an altogether more radical transition, with Jex Opolis re-imagining the cut as a cheery chunk of Puerto Rican proto-house complete with Latin piano riffs and locked-in drum machine percussion.

Disco/Nu-Disco
  1. Human Emotion (TV dub) (5:47)
  2. Fifth Wind (4:45)
  3. Botanico (4:45)
  4. Infinity Room (6:08)
  5. Human Emotion (3:52)
Review: Having started his career by making synth-heavy cuts inspired by proto-house, disco and NYC boogie, Jex Opolis has recently moved further towards Balearic territory. Human Emotion, the New York producer's final 12" of the year, smartly touches on all of these influences and more. "Human Emotion (TV Dub)" is loved-up, slick and groovy, with cut-up vocal samples rising above a dreamy, drum machine-dominated groove, while "Fifth Wind" layers saucer-eyed piano flourishes and head-in-the-clouds chords over a killer analogue bassline and near-horizontal rhythm track. Elsewhere, "Botanico" is a Fairlight-wielding chunk of Balearic instrumental synth-pop, "Infinity Room" sounds like Andreas Vollenweider jamming with Moon B, and closer "Human Emotion" is a low-slung, proto-house style treat.

Dze (limited 12")
Cat: GDTIMIN 003. Rel: 15 Sep 14
Disco/Nu-Disco
  1. DZE
  2. Please Be Good To Me
  3. Please Be Bad To Me
Review: From DVAS to "DZE", Jex continues his solo adventures with this crystalline instrumental disco 12".Sumptuous lounge instrumentals soaked in juicy synths, each cut shimmers with just the right amount of jazzy narratives and layered arrangement. We lead with the piano-primed "DZE" which features legendary Italo pianist Steve Galante! The straight up synth boogie "Please Be Good To Me" follows and is developed further with the more dancefloor-focussed Norwegian sounding "Please Be Bad To Me". Beautiful.

Circle Of Drums (12") (1 per customer)

Disco/Nu-Disco
  1. Circle Of Drums (7:11)
  2. Stay Cold (3:58)
  3. Echo Harp (6:17)
  4. That's My Beach (5:56)
Review: Following outings on Running Back and his own Good Timin' imprint (the latter as one half of Conga Radio), Jex Opolis was arguably one of the underground success stories of 2015. He's at his best when focusing on vintage drum machines and synthesizers, knocking out cuts that sit somewhere between proto-house, early Chicago deep house and melodious, AM radio-friendly boogie. He touches on all of those influences on this super-limited 12" for Good Timin', variously impressing with the sun-kissed beauty of "That's My Beach", the Moon B on anti-depressants brilliance of "Stay Cold", and the synth-heavy, house-flavoured dancefloor goodness of "Circle of Drums" and "Echo Harp".

  3. Ravines (4:24)

  7. Mt Belzoni (4:24)
  8. Apres-MIDI (4:22)
  9. Snow On Tompkins (2:26)
Review: Given the quality of his output to date, hopes are naturally high for this debut album from Good Timin' boss Jex Opolis. Predictably, it's a thrilling set, packed with undeniably Balearic moments rich in kaleidoscopic synths, rich boogie bass, jammed out electrofunk solos, tapped out drum machine rhythms and breezy, summer's afternoon chords. While the overriding vibe is laidback and sun-kissed, there are naturally occasional sprints towards the dancefloor, with the Afro-tinged Balearic boogie of "First Stomp" and exotic "Mt Belzoni" standing out. As debut albums go, Ravine is something of a peach.

  1. Look At My Car! (6:27)
  2. Rimini Nites (5:49)
  3. Guitar Sands (6:52)
Review: For his latest outing on the Good Timin' imprint he set up some years back, Jex Opolis is joined by Ian D Knight. The St Louis-based performance artist notably makes his presence felt on "Look At My Car", delivering a vocal inspired by "consumerism and rampant motorism" over the NYC producer's superb, Padlock-inspired, boogie-dub groove. The Compass Point influence also comes to the fore on closer "Guitar Sands", where intertwining guitar and synthesizer motifs stretch out across a Larry Levan-friendly backing track. The EP's other cut, "Rimini Nite", successfully pays tribute to the halcyon days of Italo-disco. It's every bit as thrilling as the rest of this superb 12".

  8. KZA - "Fitness Beats" (4:49)
Review: Absolute DJ pleasure... Most Excellent take a break from their buy-on-sight Krivit edit series with this beautiful collection of groove tools that will bring rhythmic, loopy magic to any mix in any dancefloor style. Intricate and refined enough to vibe to as stand-alone tunes, but best when places in the heat of a mix we range from lean percussive hypnosis such as Phil Moffa's "Kings & Queens" and Photay's "J Tain Squeak Break" to gutsy soul persistence like Justin Van Der Volgen's "High In NYC". Those looking for total gospel immersion should jump on Devin Dare's "WatCanUDo4Me" while those in need something grittier and more machine-funk need to be acquainted with Non Stop's "Whatever / Whatever" and Jex Opolis's "CR78 Sharing" stat!
