If veteran San Francicso DJ Tom Thump‘s intention on Midnight Soul was to bring some tasteful tracks to the Buddha Bar lounge crowd, he‘s succeeded in spades. While only a few cuts (Kaskade‘s "Let You Go" and the Peter Malick/Norah Jones joint) scream fashion stilettos and fruity martinis, the rest of two discs reads like a who‘s who from Groove or Goya Distribution‘s new releases list. Exclusives like Alison Crockett‘s "UR" remixed by Yam Who? sit snugly next to bangers by Platinum Pied Pipers, Mark de Clive-Lowe, and Lizz Fields. This is exactly what I want to be hearing ‘round midnight.
