AllMusic Review by

Terrance Parker's Intangible label has a great reputation for putting out passionate house records. Not just a 4/4 beat with some high hats and a repetitive synth, their tracks have soul -- and not just a spoonful, they offer it by the bucket. Parker seems to have a secret recipe that he shares only with his Intangible lablemates. No records are put out without the right amount of this secret soul. This release is no different. Put together by a collaboration of unknown artists calling themselves Disco Revisited, "Tonight's the Nite" comes with a full head of steam, with a soul-filled keyboard sequence, solid house beat, and a funky vocal. The next track, "When Luv's the Feeling," incorporates a sampled disco piano loop into a funky break beat and adds a drippy soul vocal backed by bongos. If you aren't convinced of the soul credibility yet, "Gonna Roc U All Night" should do the trick. If the croon and vocoder vocal doesn't make you want to close your eyes and scream, you're in trouble. Any release from the Intangible catalog is guaranteed to get a stubborn crowd to get up and dance. If they can't feel the soul from these releases, they are hopeless.
