After a hiatus of over a decade, Italian producer F.T.G returned in 2013 with "Tribute '89", a fiendishly limited, single-sided 12" that sold out almost as soon as it went on sale. Here, that superb cut - a heavy drum machine workout that sits somewhere between the darker end of Chicago house and '89 European techno - gets a deserved reissue, alongside a couple of previously unheard cuts. "Public Enemy", a collaboration with Belfie and Alex Tea, is a little more melodious, sounding not unlike Willie Burns and Larry Heard jamming. Alex Tea joins F.T.G on "Bango", which is deep, dubby and jacking - a kind of hypnotic version of Chicago house, with a little '89 New York thrown in.
