‘Classic albums’ may be an overused term but is entirely warranted here with the announced reissue of this LP from Matthew Herbert's extensive back catalogue, getting a release on triple vinyl on his own Accidental label. 1998’s ‘Around The House’ set the benchmark for a new more considered approach to dance music production that sounds as crisp today as when it first hit the late 90’s dance floors.

There have of course been many brilliant house albums since Around the House and 2001's Bodily Functions, many of them influenced by them, but there is a distinctive, timeless quality in the sounds and words these songs were made from. Those sounds include the distinctive voice of Matthew’s former wife Dani Siciliano as well as long time collaborator, the late pianist Phil Parnell, human blood flow, kitchen utensils, bones, domestic appliances, teeth and laser eye surgery. Indeed, Matthew’s now legendary Personal Contract for the Composition of Music (PCCOM) for which he is now famed, was considered radical at the time.
