"Brett Johnson is a household name in house music synonymous with super groovy, hip flexin' productions. We got in touch with Brett and begged for a little more of the funk and he came back to us with The Pop Up. Things kick off with a full-blown Chicago-style jack attack on the A-side with 'Sling Blade.' A rolling house groove, walking bass line and a low rez digital hook are the main ingredients here with some flashback induced effects sending things over the edge. Speaking of flashbacks, on the second cut 'The Way We Were' takes things back 20 years paying homage to the deep sound of the mid-'80s. Pimpin' ain't easy. Saving the best for last, Brett serves up his signature house sound with 'Space.' A bouncing melodic hook keeps popping up alongside some old school funk-packed bass, fused together with an underlie of groovy swung percussion. Things bubble and bounce up to beautiful melody that hit a mark that many house productions today fail to touch. And if all the melody was too much for you, well you've got the stripped-down 'Basstrumental' dub version to satisfy your mix. These cuts from Brett prove that certain classic elements of house will never die and never get tired. But he also proves that those elements can continue to be explored and redefined."
