Charles Schillings & Robert Owens – Me Time – Haçienda Records (HAC 051)

H is the History, Hacienda, House. It’s a numbers game too. It is also about the addiction to nostalgia. Which is precisely why this production by Charles Schillings provides such a sense of release as the music feels like an escape from the past, sounding beautifully 2022, primed with a title that is also self-defining for a slice of contemporary culture.

Opening yet another chapter Me Time features the instantly unmistakable vocals of Robert Owens who neatly links 1980’s Chicago to now like there was no tomorrow. The music itself invigorates by sequencing fiery drum brakes together with rolling basslines alongside a punctuating edge generated by hotwired synth lines to produce something that is powerfully direct, a sentiment that is likewise contained within the message the words have to say. Original and Mix.

Release: April 6
