Drawing on the tradition of true, soulful deep house music, Future Reactions serves to carry the torch first lit by the likes of Larry Heard and picked up by heads such as Fred P and Patrice Scott. Chris J clearly feels this with the pitch-perfect harmony of "Around Philly", all wistful chords and warm square wave bass wrapped around a chunky beat. Rick Wade is already a proven master of the style, and "Clizias Theme" finds him drawing on his disco side for a sweet-natured and peppy groover. Norm Talley meanwhile brings a little bit of Motor City heat to the party with the heavy mood of "Str8 Housin'", and then Satore whips up an energized vibe with his "Upstreet Mix" of "Moodment".
