James Curd emerged as a DJ in Chicago and has become a mainstay of the scene. He is also credited with inventing G-Swing, a house sound infused with swing. He has run various labels over the years while releasing on some of the world's finest imprints and serving up his magical sets everywhere, from fabric in London to The Avalon in Los Angeles and The Arches in Glasgow. American Osunlade, meanwhile, has deep spiritual roots in Yoruba traditions that are also reflected in the name of his record label. He makes music with a rare spirituality, as proven once again here.

The superb "Chocolate Puddin'" is a silky smooth, deep, and Afro-tinged house with gorgeous percussive melodies and soft shakers. It's full of soul and warmth with meaningful leads that bring plenty of uplifting emotions next to a bluesy vocal.

The remixer is a Moroccan mainstay and label regular FNX Omar. He flips the track into something richly layered with percussion, nimble bass, organic hand claps, and hypnotic drum lines that all sink you in deep.
