Boomkat Product Review:
He may be a bit young for a Greatest Hits set, but that ain’t stopping Night Slugs, who’ve pulled together a stack of previously unreleased club constructions by USA’s Beau Thigpen a.k.a. DJ Vague a.k.a. Helix.
Built with dark, sweaty spaces clearly in mind, Helix’s Greatest Hits distill cues from a spectrum of modern club pressures into a forward moving and mutable style of his own, one as likely to encompass an industro-Funky flip of Tainted Love as take in hair-kissing synths on Techno Trak, and put a Linn snare on, well, frankly anything from grime mutations to ghetto house bullets such as Dick Track.
