Boomkat Product Review:
Hitting their fifteenth birthday with not an ASBO in sight, the Aldous Huxley indebted Soma crew have put together an extra special edition of their annual compilation - with cuts from the likes of Alex Smoke, Octogen, The Black Dog, Repeat Repeat and The Separatists eddying for attention next to a full-fat mix CD from the boys Slam. Strung across a gallows of spidery beats and bleeping arteries, 'Soma Compilation 2006' is an all-round winner that takes its micro-tooled compositions very seriously and is much the better off for it... Opening on Alex Smoke's 'Make My Day' (here as a Lusine mix), the compilation rattles through the likes of Octogen, My Robot Friend and Repeat Repeat with an energy and outlook that is totally infectious and varied without losing focus or cohesion. Likely to appeal to Soma aficionados as much as newcomers alike.
