Boomkat Product Review:
Gilles Peterson gives props to two of his favourite new skool selectors with a double disc compilation of international exclusives picked by Belgium's Lefto and man like Simbad. Regarded by many as the highlight of 2010s WorldWide festivals, DJ and radio broadcaster Lefto takes in strong future soul from UpHigh Collective feat Delvis outta Belgium, tricksy MPC beats from the USA's Exile, Onra's buttered French boogie, Grooveman Spot's jazz hazy head-nodders outta Japan and submerged slow bopper from New Zealand's Karlmarx siblings, besides more from TOKiMONSTA, I.N.T, Trilogy and Dela & The Headlesshunters. Simbad's picks cover a broader tempo range and stylistic quota, from Cooly G's tribal gynoid riddim 'Gritting', to the rugged 'n raw dancehall bump of Israel's Kalbata on 'Silver Balls' through something a lil' different from Illum Sphere on 'One For Dimlite', and the ever-restess outernational technoid ructions of Austria's Stereotyp on the fierce fling of 'Twist Up'. 7 tracks of heavy freshness to put a dip in your skip for 2011!
