Through releases on his own Good Timin' imprint - both solo, and as part of Conga Radio - Jex Opolis has proved adept at re-packaging a variety of NYC-friendly influences, from boogie and analogue funk, to proto-house and early garage-house. "Studio E", the opening cut from this first Jex EP for Running Back, doffs a cap to both the muscular throb of Twilo era Danny Tenaglia, and the Italo-influenced shuffle of dark-room nu-disco. Elsewhere, he expertly combines Konk style Latin-disco percussion with an undulating, analogue house bassline on "Laxmi Tool", fuses Scandolearic disco and vintage deep house influences ("Harpa"), and returns to his warm boogie influences on the Metro Area-ish "La Casa".
