Bargrooves: Metropolitan

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jason Birchmeier
Yet another Bargrooves release, one among many. Like the others, Bargrooves: Metropolitan is comprised of fashionable packaging and two discs of laid-back house music mixed by Ben Sowton and a guest DJ, in this particular case the Soul Avengerz.
