Here is another fierce house song to start the year. This is a debut from Brighton's MaxxiSoundsystem released on Kojak label. It is a fantastic deep and heavy rub of R&B singer Alexander's O'Neal'slate 80's "Criticize"from his LP Hearsay. The original is totally '80s cheese yet still hold it's own by being O'Neal's biggest UK hit to date. I couldn't resist to feature the original as well ,but it is the Maxxi Soundsystem version that is quite a treat by adding dub synths with an old school house vibe adding more of kick and power. If this version would have been released in 1987, it would have become a house classic. Maxxi Soundsystem has been around for ten years rocking dance floors in their hometown re-editing a lot of the tracks they play. I have heard they are starting to release their own material! Enjoy
