All Music Guide:
As G Flame and Mr. G., Colin McBean moved away from the hard techno he had produced with Cisco Ferreira as the English duo known as the Advent. After spending the mid- to late '90s as a highly regarded duo, McBean began concentrating on a techno-influenced style of house music that retained the Advent's knack for producing elaborate and highly textured tracks for the dance floor but that integrated the sense of soul and groove commonly associated with house. Besides releasing EPs on Metal Box and Phoenix G, McBean also released G Flame and Mr. G. material on Mike Grant's Detroit-based Moods & Grooves label.
