Sofa So Good
From the last Deepgrooves compilation, Sofa So Good, subtitled The Deepgrooves Producers Selection (1998). Some well cool loungey grooves, a few years before all those chill-out comps like Lazy Sunday were everywhere.
Other contributors were Combinations (Andy Submariner Morton and Manuel Bundy, listen at bottom), Keng, Sulata, Breaks Co-op, New Loungehead, and Grace.
Freaker were led by John Ozbourne (ex Slacker). According to the CD liner notes, this track was off a proposed album called Moltorubato, that didn't see release due to the closure of Deepgrooves.
UPDATED: John Oz released the Freaker album Moltorubato on cdbaby on 2015, get it here.
Pause were led by Justyn Pilbrow (later of Elemeno P) with Jo Currie and Anna Copley. They released a 3 song single on Deepgrooves, called Only, in 1998, and apparently had an album ready to go.
