The second entry in a three-part series of music based around his studio, Ian Pooley's "Studio A Pt. 2" for Radio Slave's Rekids imprint sees the bonafide house legend deliver another choice selection of grooving hardware productions.

Leading the A-side are the fluttering synths and warped vocal samples of "JV Organ & Matrix", which twists and turns through delightful FX and rumbling bass. "Version 2" of the track follows, contorting elements of the original into a heads-down groover, with washed-out processing and stereo wizardry meeting classic dub techniques.

On the flip, "Back Up" keeps it live and direct with hard-hitting, chunky drums and menacing acid lines, with an additional stripped back digital "Beats Bass" version included. Rounding out the 12" is "101202", a dreamy slice of razor-sharp house, with gorgeous filtered pads drifting in tandem with strung out the low end and skippy percussion.

Active since the early 90s, the German DJ/producer has released on the likes of Force Inc, V2 Records, and his own Pooledmusic, remixing for the likes of Deee-Lite, Carl Cox, and many more, as well as being one of the few to be remixed by Daft Punk.
