This luscious soundtrack for a sweet, swanky night on the town features scrumptious low-end magic by Jordan Scannella and super-hip synth bass by Tortured Soul drummer John-Christian Urich. Conjuring the ghosts of ’70s dancefloor deities with a ’90s twist and 21st-century production, Urich keeps the synth bass thick and juicy on tunes like “Last Time We Made Love” and “Don’t Lead Me On,” while Scanella’s nimble approaches on “All You Have to Do” and “Can’t Keep Rhythm From a Dancer” bring to mind New York bass gods Gene Perez and Bernard Edwards.
