Boomkat Product Review:
After brining you a sampler of this compilation a few weeks back, here comes the full package: sixteen tracks of wonky hip hop and 21st century funk from Domu and Shiftee's TrebleO label. Followers of the imprint will recognise great tracks by Lukid, Daedelus, Dorian Concept and Sonar Circle (the latter as remixed by Bass Clef), but there's so much more to discover. No specific music policy dominates this album: there's '70s-style prog jazz from Sub Ensemble, vintage house from DJ Marin (via a Rondenion mix), breakstep from Cartridge, and soulful funk productions from Domu himself and the likes of Nu Era or Ben Mi Duck (whose 'Pointless Dreams' manages to pull off a string-laden acid jazz sound without sounding like its been plucked straight out of 1995). A great, varied selection from a killer new label worth keeping an eye on.
