Boomkat Product Review:
Following his excellent 'Radio AM/FM' album, Exile and Plug Research offer up a 21-track addendum of remixes and exclusive vocal versions from his circle of LA based peers. Top of the pile, Shafiq Husayn drops a wandering jazz wise mix of 'It's Coming Down', next to Samiyam's hovering organ and crispy slump beat mix of 'Population Control'. P.U.D.G.E massively impresses with the hazy depth perceptions of his 'So We Can Move' refit, sending the bass plummeting into thte groove while the sample textures seem to peel and fray into near electro-acoustic figures. Take's mix of 'Your Summer Song' swings out stereo-pysched synth stabs and slow crushed Latinjazz breaks like Dilla gone awry, a vibe also worked by Knxwledge's 'Frequency/It's Coming Down' mashup, like catching the radio dial between two complementary stations. Also features mixes from Assembly Line, Free The Robots, Grouch and Eligh, DJ Day, Clutchy Hopkins, Mike Gao and many others.
