    I would imagine the contract has a clause that doesn't stop him from releasing his own material from the vaults or indeed from doing remix work though.

    Some quite nice tunes on this mixed up with some more out there tracks which I'm not bowled over by. On a brief first listen the collab with Calibre was ok but nothing special

    Kind of wish Second Floor was an instrumental tbh....

    "Amen Workout" is lovely, very original flow to it.

    "Steptoe" is really nice too - lovely stompy wonky halftime flow that makes me wonder what might have become of him if he had sailed closer to the Exit shore.

    I really rate the vocals in 2nd floor, but drs suits the flow better than kemo imo.

    Lynx doing exit stuff would be interesting but I imagine it would be fairly generic half time stuff with the distinctive lynx weirdness

    An instrumental version of Second Floor will be available as a bonus on this album apparently.

    I don't think Lynx is really capable of sounding generic tbh, I mean I don't really rate an awful lot of his stuff but it never ever sounds contrived and it always sounds like him, and it always sounds completely unexpected.

    Big fan of this one here, reckon that's an angle he could easily have developed, although the Kemo vocal kind of sets my teeth on end too tbh

    When you get to our age you start lying about your age tbh!

    Think the first thing of his I remember buying and loving was "Time Out" on one of those Renegade Rollers EPs. Still a banger 10 years on tbh
