Back at their own Nocturnal Groove Digital, long-serving British House duo The Shapeshifters return to the original production front with ‘It’s Alright’. Armed with a double-barrelled onslaught of warm House grooves and funk infused trumpets, the carneval-esque focus of ‘It’s Alright’ marks a move to the funkier sounds that the post-summer season beckons. Aptly tailored around its infectious trumpet work and firm leads, this is a solid gem of the good time vibes that have been all too commonly overlooked amid the Dance explosion.

In a bid to kick things off in outright style for the renowned imprint of The Shapeshifters, Something Good don their well-received dance floor intellect to the atypical House grooves of award winning Scottish producer Roy McLaren. With both acts proving themselves to be vital players for 2011, the New Year a digression from the typically big room buoyancy of the Finnish duo, replacing it with a rather atypical fusion somewhat more conversant with the original.

Diving into a deep canvas of misshapen 80’s disco grooves and warm synthesisers, Something Good encompass the grooves of a misshapen 80’s disco, providing what could well be acclaimed as one of the most original and artistic instalments of House music since it’s over-complimented heyday. Setting the standard to an all-time-high for 2012, Nocturnal have certainly set the standard to an all-time-high, reigniting the flame of hope that beyond the surface of things, crucial digressions from R&B crossovers and Dub Step remixes are still possible.
