Boomkat Product Review:
The elusive Few Crackles lot deliver a lux box set featuring a mad lineup of mixtape selectors; Felix Hall, Jon K, Mother, Ntn & Ssabae and Lil Toby (compiler of the seminal Now Thing comp on Mo Wax). Each of them has a full tape side, (Jon K has two), trust that the selections are wild, weird and deadly.
Apart from their soundsystem parties in Paris over the last few years, Few Crackles came to our attention with the release of an untitled 7” from Бassae a couple of years ago - you know, one of those records that arrives with basically no info but which you just know yr gonna need to grab. Anyway, based on nothing more than a couple of 60 second clips we were getting emails about it for months from people trying to snag one.
Fast fwd two years and the label now re-emerges with what must rank as the dream lineup of riddim selectors packed into one package, no need to really list thru the credentials of any of them - except to say that you should expect the unexpected and prepare for years of detective work and the lonnng wants list yr sure to end with after rinsing this lot.
