A collection of cuts produced by Alvin Ranglin, who usually aimed for a clear, chunky sound built on a distinct rhythm pulse -- vocals could float easily on top of the rhythm arrangement; at the same time, the rhythm could be stripped down for the version, giving DJs something to build on. The resulting cuts tend to be ingratiating and entertaining, getting under the skin and into the body with the minimum of fuss. One of the better entries in this Heartbeat compilation series. ~ Steven McDonald
