Following the stunning digital outing, Oliver Dollar’s ‘Another Day Another Dollar’ now has its long-awaited vinyl release, spread across two EPs. This adventurous artistic statement from one of house music’s most vital names shows off a wider breadth and depth of sound than ever before in his Classic Music Company debut.
Using the longer format as a way of expressing different styles, from blues to disco, house to downtempo, the album was in the works for six years. Oliver linked with some of house music’s most essential names, from Ben Westbeech to Matthew K, Daniel Steinberg to Nils Ohrmann via Sqim. The album has now been split over two vinyl EPs, with Part 2 formed of a five-track selection that commits some of the highlights of the album to wax.
Opening the A-side is the gospel grooves abound ‘John’s Church’ followed by the bouncing, funk-laden ‘Not Enough’. On the flip is ‘On & On’ where raw house is complimented by Ben Westbeech’s gravelly vocals. This is followed by a special vinyl edit of the disco tinged beatdown ‘Spinal Tap’ and the laid-back ‘Sampling’ which features Chicago legend Gene Farris. ‘Another Day Another Dollar’ is one of the most complete house albums you could wish to hear, and this vinyl edition showcases the genre defying abilities of Oliver Dollar’s production.
