Messin’ With My Mind

The Thompson Project, Gary L

SFRD009D | 1998-05-27  
Soulfuric is one of the most well-renowned labels in house music worldwide. As production duo Jazz-N-Groove and Urban Blues Project (UBP), Brian Tappert and Marc Pomeroy released records on classic labels including Sub-Urban, Strictly Rhythm and AM:PM, even cueing up the first ever release on Defected Records (and a UK chart no.8) with Soulsearcher’s 'Can’t Get Enough'. In 1996, the two founded their own label Soulfuric Recordings which eventually included sub-labels Soulfuric Deep and Soulfuric Trax. Soulfuric was and is one of the most important labels in the history of this genre we love, garnering a cult following and releasing classics from Axwell, John ‘Julius’ Knight, Shawn Christopher, Hardsoul, Melba Moore, & Copyright.

Keith Thompson has had a constant hand in house music since its early days. ‘Messin’ With My Mind’ sees him team up with expressive vocalist Gary Little. Label bosses Brian Tappert & Marc Pomeroy turn in three characteristically soulful mixes, a pair as Urban Blues Project and one as Jazz-N-Groove. Guy Robin’s mix pushes the track’s luscious strings to the fore, whilst the Layabouts opt for a spacious, reverb-heavy approach on their pair of remixes, and Phonic Funk offer a more electronic interpretation. Two original versions, carried along on raw drums, and an Accapella round out this bumper package.
