Facing the task of following up Marques Wyatt’s masterful first volume in the series, Mark Grant flinches not and pulls out a stellar selection of jazzy, soulful and infectious deep house grooves.  The mix bursts with colorful energy from start to finish; each track is a choice cut, shimmering with tropical percussion and good time vibes.  Some immediate highlights include the sassy funk of Inland Knights’ Feel This Way and the tribal drums and vibrant, jazzy horns of Atmosfear’s Dancing In Outer Space.  Jerome Sydeham and Kerri Chandler’s Deconstructed House is another example of their sublime, sunshine vibe.  Grant combines seamless mixing and impeccable programming into this faultless collection, making it essential for any house fan.
