Boomkat Product Review:
You know that breakcore/ragga/acid version of Thomas The Tank Engine you've always meant to get round to recording? Well guess what!? Mully has gone and beat you to it with 'Fee Fi Fum'. The bastard! If the idea of such a grubby cross-breed fills you with unmitigated dread, then may I cordially suggest that Wrong Music's label sampler 'Whatever!' isn't for you. The kind of record that should come with complementary Anadin, 'Whatever!' fires on all ruptured cylinders from the off; opening with the growling dubstep of DJ Psylage and 'Murderous Stile' and closing 29 tracks later with the dentist breakcore of DJ Floorclearer. In-between, The Sharon Smith Quartet take on Cassette Boy (and lose), The Sticks sound like a Fisher Price Yeah Yeah Yeahs and The Phil Collins 3 combine sea shanty, punk rock and Jerusalem. With tracks also coming from V/VM, Shitmat, DJ Scotch Egg and loads more, this comp really is Wrong in every sense of the word, so full marks on the descriptive naming front. 'Whatever' is undeniably becoming at times... Make it stop!
