"Super-hot UK producer and label-boss of Playtime Mike Monday's latest smash 'Bhalobashi' encapsulates what a 21st century anthemic dance record should be about. Minimal, in the sense that there are a few carefully crafted core elements to the track, each perfectly working off the other. Most important is the power of the hook -- here it's the melody, which manages to capture the feeling of old school motor city soulfulness perfectly. A distinctly new school bassline sits perfectly alongside classic Roland 909 rim shots and claps, driving the track forward whilst providing the balance that's the source of 'Bhalobashi''s futuristic feeling. This track truly gets people's hands in the air at the end of the night, leaving the crowd in a sweaty euphoric mess. Oh yes! For the Argy remix he focuses on the unrelenting nature of one of Mike's lead sounds and crafts a moody, haunting track that's nice and edgy. Sound design is one of the most interesting features that characterizes the current crop of minimal producers and Argy is undoubtedly one of the leaders of the pack. Fully appreciated on a large club sound-system; spacey, futuristic fills jump out at the unsuspecting raver, tickling the listeners' stereo palette."
