"Essex-bred Lee Jones lived in London until 2002, where he was producing and remixing as the downtempo/nu-jazz artist, Hefner. After following his heart to Berlin, he was inspired by the music and clubs to move into a new production style and for the past 3 years he's been the creative production force behind My My, whose debut album Songs For The Gentle made waves across the globe. 'As You Like It': a crisp lead melody leads us by the hand into a full-on old school Chicago stab fest. Lee's typically intricate tom pattern nestles underneath the taut drums, keeping the rhythm section bouncing along. Yes, it is indeed how we like it! Perhaps Lee's most peak time record to date. 'Recloose Remix': a real summer treat. Matt reinterprets Lee's stabs and adds his own p-funk infused live bass line and chords, which totally change the vibe. In the the words of Jimpster, 'a mutoid boogie rinse out.' 'The Ice Train Cometh': shimmering pads are intertwined with snippets of a female vocal EQ'd to sound eerily icy. Only Lee could make this '80s bass sound feel so contemporary. Matthew Chicoine aka Recloose, made his name signed to the fantastic Planet E label over the past decade. Having studied music at Ann Arbor and cutting his teeth as a college DJ, Recloose went on to be a turntablist for Carl Craig's Innerzone Orchestra, the esoteric Uri Caine Ensemble, globe-trotting far and wide to collect musical influences. The burgeoning musical scene of Wellington has offered fresh inspiration to a mind already brimming with talent."
