Rick Wade's second Yore 12-inch, Night Tactics, offers four more polished samplings of classic funk-soul by the Michigan-born, Detroit House legend. The slamming disco groove in the opener "Lostarts" provides a rock-solid base for a pumping bass line and Rhodes chords, while congas add Latin swing to the surging, string-laden techno of "Theory of a Varice." Ululating voices bring appropriately exotic flavour to "World Voice" but it's the grooving pulse that stomps throughout that is its most beautiful detail. "Vanguard Cinema" is the wild card here, a skanky shuffler chased by a reggae guitar riff that still manages to squeeze in hints of Wade's trademark warmth and soul. While clearly smooth and sleek, Wade's Night Tactics material is, above all else, masterful.
