AllMusic Review by

Popular U.K. compilation series Late Night Tales presents the first edition of a new spin-off series called After Dark. Diverging from their classic format of loosely themed, artist-curated mixes for nocturnal dwellers, After Dark is a DJ-led, club-focused mix with an emphasis on tasty, simmering grooves from '70s disco and funk to contemporary house tracks. Getting the nod on this inaugural volume is London DJ, writer, and tastemaker Bill Brewster. In describing his approach for the After Hours mix, Brewster wanted "dance music for people who know how to make love." Those seeking explosive, high-energy jams full of breaks and drops should look elsewhere as these 18 cuts are slow and concentrated on the deep, nighttime groove.
