The buzz for the 'Cosmic Law' release has been around for a while now but even the two singles didn't prepare us for this 11 track opus.

Yes, stunned by the singles, 'Jazz In The Room' (see review HERE) and 'Can’t Let You Go', featuring Rona Ray (see review HERE), this new album on Atjazz's label threatens to topple our other favourite Album of the Year' that happen's to be on his label too, South Beach Recycling's 'Obsessive Compulsive Disco' (see review HERE): and now with remixes! (HERE).

And expect to be still stunned as the opener is like that fast paced jazz fuelled funker that you'd wished Santana or Weather Report had produced with a big dollop of Azymuth; like 'Latin Love' and the dreamy gallop of 'Let's Meet Again' with the added bonus of some fine trumpet playing (apparently, it's all the rage once more: really 'Jazz In The House' is close to perfect).

'In My Dreams' another track featuring Rona Ray on vocals is more housey as is 'Come And Save Me' (feat Sabrina Chyld) that's sort of linked by the dreamy Balearic mood of 'Glasshouse' and 'Dusk'.

Shouldn't be no surprise to anyone as how good this is when we discover Abel (aka DJ/Collector Steve Butler is joined here by Lloyd Wright (he of Smoove & Turrell), members of Knats and Magic Number (also on Atjazz, see HERE) and if you like your house artisan, get onto 'Hand Made' featuring Brutha Basil - in the style of Darren Price's 'The Real House Music' (see review HERE).

Expect to hear more 'Cosmic Law' on the forthcoming YATM Radio Show with tracks like 'I Just Can't Wait' (another feat. Ms Chyld) back to back with Sun Palace's 'Rude Movements' (still available on BBE) in the Old n' New feature (constantly thinking about quality music); in the meantime, don't hang around and get ordering/buying; you don't want to be thinking how you'd let it go!
