Patrick Dream & Nav Bhinder/Various Bombay Two: Montreal Live

Amalgamating Montreal label Bombay's best cuts of last year, label founders Patrick Dream and Nav Bhinder showcase superior taste and talent in a deep and sweet mix of what is mostly Roy Davis Jr., Miguel Graca and Chris Brann tracks. Soothing as an audio wet dream, Bombay Two sets a new deep house standard, generating substantial heat while maintaining aural calm around solid but languid beats. Highlights include the deep and relentless groove of Brann's "Deep Affection" and the casually jazzy rhythms of Rise Ashan's "Second Wind," which is followed by a too smooth to be true descent into the Dream and Graca collaboration "Second Shanty Dub."
