Ability IIの「Pressure」は、90年代のUKガラージとハウスの名作。オープニングの「Pressure Dub」は、深くて重厚なベースラインとリズミカルなドラムパターンが特徴。中盤のシンセサイザーのブレイクがクラブでの盛り上がりを誘う。次の「Pressure Vocal Mix」は、ソウルフルなボーカルが曲に感情の深みを加え、フロア全体を魅了する。特にサビのメロディは耳に残りやすく、何度もリピートしたくなる。最後の「Pressure Instrumental」は、ボーカルを排し、ビートとメロディの繊細なバランスを楽しむことができる。イントロからアウトロまで、細部にわたる精巧なアレンジが光る一枚。

UK artist David Duncan recorded only one EP as Ability II but it is one of those which has become an utter cult classic and much sought-after 12". The story goes that the bassline on this one was so deep the mastering engineer had a problem cutting it. There is no evidence of it on this reissue though - that bassline powers the tune perfectly as the plunging kick drums and dancing synths get you moving your body. Perfectly deployed vocals bring heart-aching soul as this most warm and dubby cut drowns you in timeless deep techno. Next to the gorgeous original mix is an extended dub for even more drawn-out late-night dance floor pleasures.
