Various – OST / Original Block Party Edits (2005) (CD) (FLAC + 320 kbps)

2005, Various Artists , , , 23.01.2017

In 2005 there seems to have been a resurgence in digging into the much ignored 70’s disco grooves for long lost hidden gems. $tateside are currently reissuing Miami’s TK label output making us all re-evaluate KC and his Sunshine Band for holding together some serious funked up disco action, Greg Wilson and his perpetual one man mission for the glory that is 80’s electrofunk, and now we come the genre that is the ‘edit’. Apparently this is exactly as it says on the tin. An edit is not a remix, but an old school tape and scissors method to extract the dance groove for maximum effect. So in honour of this long lost art Emi’s new imprint, ‘Original Soundtrack’ have put together a set of tracks that have been diced and spliced using more up to date methods, to sometimes breathtaking effect. The line up of people doing the tricks is mighty impressive, amongst the unknowns there are tracks that are going to make you go ‘oooh, i do know this’ (the advertising world features in several places), as well several heavy hitting hip hop sample sources. Special mentions must go to the awesome 8 minutes of ‘Make You Believe In Me’ as mucked up and breakbeat enhanced by Ashley Beedle and Phil Asher (revisited at the end of the comp in an even more wonderful tripped down version), the melody is pure dynamite and the hip hop style emphasis is a serious spine tingle experience, as is the horny Tim ‘Love’ Lee re-edit of ‘Soul Drummers’, the exquisite luxuriously chilled out fug version of ‘Les Fleur’ with its excessive choral effects and dubbed up basslines, as is .. as is .. you get the picture, hopefully.
Basically, for 77 minutes you cant go wrong with this updated piece of disco dance action that makes the sun shine irrespective of the cloud cover /Ireallylovemusic.co.uk/.

Various – Hip-Hop Connection Presents Recognition – 20 Years Of Fire-Starting UK Anthems (2008) (2CD) (FLAC + 320 kbps)

2008, Million Dan, UK, Various Artists , , 23.01.2017

‘Hip-Hop Connection Presents Recognition 20 Years Of Fire-Starting UK Rap Anthems’ is 20 tracks of…well; the title is pretty self explanatory. In roughly chronological order, HHC curates the annals of the art form done Blighty’s way and succeeds in drawing together some of the most influential specimens.

As I hinted before, anyone interested in the UK Rap scene will have heard the majority of what’s on offer here, meaning this serves perfectly as an introduction or education to the un-schooled. It also provides perfectly for that car journey when you forgot to burn off your favourite UK tracks onto a compilation CD.

There are one or two surprises; Blak Twang’s ‘08 album cut, ‘How Long’ fills the gap between ‘91’s ‘Son of Noise’ and ‘01’s ‘The Unknown’ by Mark B & Blade – a gap that Twang’s ‘Red Letters’ would have filled perfectly. Or with a little re-sequencing ‘So Rotton’ would have been more than fitting. The last tracks, although good, are probably not the best representatives of the evident creativity of UK Hip Hop’s last couple of years. /certified banger/
