When it comes to producing deep, sophisticated, musically rich deep house, few are quite as capable as Kai Alce. Even so, there’s still something extra-special about “Take A Chance”, a thoroughly deep, soulful and lilting excursion full of rolling, African-influenced percussion, eyes-closed trumpet solos and warm, evocative vocals. Alce’s hero Larry Heard provides the remixes, firstly under his given name (a typically deep, soulful and dreamy interpretation) and secondly as Mr Fingers. It’s these “Ambient Acid” versions – built around restless, lopped electronics and the original’s sublime trumpet – that really stand out. Brilliant from start to finish.
