VARIOUS - Back To Mine - Bugz In The Attic

VARIOUS - Back To Mine - Bugz In The Attic (DMC) Comentários: The nine-strong line-up of Bugz In The Attic must have got into a right old squabble about the track selection for this compilation. As the liner notes are keen to point out, nine members means nine different musical backgrounds and just as many record collections to cull a tracklist from. Despite that, this latest Back To Mine compilation comes across as resolutely unified endeavour, characterised by the group's penchant for cross-genre funk, hip hop and disco. The mix begins with Mu's 'Let's Get Sick' sporting some weighty production from Maurice Fulton, which quickly segues into the indie disco funk of Maximum Joy's 'Stretch.' Next, the funk element really comes to a head on First Light's 'A.M.' before Frankie Knuckles takes over. Classy hip hop productions abound from J Dilla and Rammelzee Vs K-Rob, with the latter's 'Beat Bop' being an especially pleasurable nine-and-a-half minutes of anyone's time. Further down the line highlights come thick and fast from Ray Barretto, Unique 3, The Fearless Four and Pete Rock, making for another fine edition of the Back To Mine series. in boomkat [Para Ouvir]

Uma compilação deste colectivo só podia ser excelente.
E uma selecção que inclui gente tão ilustre e distinta como Maximum Joy, Rammelzee, Ray Barretto ou Kid Creole só pode revelar a qualidade e o conhecimento musical do Seiji, do Daz-I-Kue e restantes gangue.
