It’s the first time that Terre Thaemlitz (DJ Sprinkles), Mat Steel and Mark Fell (SND) have used their collective handle You Speak What I Feel since an appearance on a Comatonse 10th Anniversary Compilation back in 2003 and finds the trio at their deadliest – producing a deep-as-anything, peak-time killer riding a strolling bassline, pointillist claps and effervescent chords for 12 minutes of swingers’ bliss.
Made in 2002 at a time when house was firmly into its ‘mnml‘ phase and original garage was reserved to weekenders or sped-up, 2-stepped and hyper, the elegant gait and sublimely tactile insistence of My Good Friends Tell Me That is a rare, exceptional example of producers returning to and reworking the foundational template and cooking up something fresh yet timelessly future-proofed in the process. It’s a prime example of economy, discipline and restraint at the service of hedonism and a deep burning emotive grip, and we’re immensely proud to make it available for public consumption, at long last.
