Baker Street Recordings spread their international wings with New Zealander James Barrett returning to the Leeds based label hot on the heels of his remix on Joe Morris’ ‘Wired For Sound’ earlier this year. The four track EP entitled ‘Options’ serves up a edgey blend of hypnotic tech house, old school warehouse vibes and a nod to progressive house roots. There’s a real sense of James’ love of early house on show here and plenty of deep grooves to keep you hooked.
