Nuphonic's soulful third collection was an interesting advertisement for the label's current roster, and a little more focused than the first. Although the overriding element was house, Nuphonic 2 stretched out in enough different directions, like the post-disco tropics of Marcel's "On the Beach," the strange drive of Lacarno & Burns' "Departure," and the percussive symphonies of the Soul Ascendants to keep the interest level high. The collection also featured Fuzz Against Junk's busted take on Talking Heads' governmentally paranoid "Born Under Punches."
