The Vanguard Sound main man is back, look out! Amir Alexander presents us with Anthology One, landing on his other label concern, Anunnaki Cartel. On the A side we've got "Necessary Sanctuary" a sublime deep house cut with a sharp and bumpy arpeggio and emotive pads backing some positive and uplifting male vocals. "Universe" gets even deeper and darker; we really like this one. Rich soulful synth tapestries reminiscent of Larry Heard back some more epic vocals exploring existentialism. On the flip is "Necessary Sanctuary (3AM Mix)" which is a more stripped and straight ahead version than the version on the other side; a neat DJ tool. Finally "Transcend" gets all intergalactic on us with this spaced out, ethereal and downright uplifting journey through the cosmos.
