It’s good to have something to dance to on a Friday, and Kraak & Smaak’s latest album Electric Hustle is certainly a good album to dance to and so much more!
Last year Mr. Westbeech was everywhere but so far this year, there’s only been a couple of singles but they’ve both been brilliant and what with Kraak & Smaak on production, quality is guaranteed.
The six DJs/producers known as Jazzanova have been satisfing ears and feet for years with their German based label Sonar Kollektiv, but it’s about time that they sorted out their own affairs and they’ve hit us with a monster album with Of All The Things.
Frost & Wagner will forever be associated with their ‘Torch Of Freedom’ remix but it’s about time someone put all their remixes in one place so their expertise can be more widely acknowledged; thankfully, Daniel Best is the man who’s done it with this fantastic compilation.
“I basically gave a friend of mine my CD but she was like ‘Oh I’ve got a friend who I could play this to’, and I didn’t know who she was talking about. I was just like, ‘oh cool, she’s just given away a CD’. Then, about two months later, I got a call saying Gilles had heard it, and he wanted to sign me to his label
By the time this album comes out, ‘Don’t Take It Personal’ will be on the scorecard as one of the tracks of the year and the album is all set to shine, WAHOO!
Lily Allen watch out girl, as you’re not going to believe this, Wahoo have gone all ska and have the big summer bounce tune
Stockholm’s Markus Enochson produced one of the albums of last year, Night Games. It was a bit of a slow burner but this new 12″ is well hot
After the big build up, the d?©but album from Mr. Westbeech has finally turned up to celebrate the best years of our lives
Before we get the debut album Welcome To The Best Years Of Your Life there’s a couple of remixes of ‘Hang Around’ doing the rounds.
