Boomkat Product Review:
Manna for the disco freaks from a god of digging; Compassion Crew presents: Compassion Cuts, Tapes & Acetates unearths a haul of hardly-known and totally obscure gems ranging from Frak doing acidic piano house to a wrecked Philip Jeck flip of Walter Gibbons & Arthur Russell, and much more besides.
Like the Light Sounds Dark collections, the set uncovers eleven prickly fruits from overgrown areas of the record store, lofts and untouched collections, and rearranges them as a somehow coherent collection that plays thru like one of the maddest mix tapes you can imagine, whilst equally standing up as a DJ-ready batch to spike the ‘floor.
It’s most alluring to to us for gear such as Olivier Rogg’s ’88 drum machine oddity, Final and that swanging acid bass on Plustwo’s highly in-demand Stop Fantasy (7” Version) or Admas’ wild ’84 Ethiopian boogie throw-down, Kalatashew Waga, but you know everyone’s gonna have their favourite here.
In a word: choice!
