Hot damn daddy-o! Here we have a deliciously decadent collection of rockabilly and surf music from the 1950s. It's all zoot suits, wrap around shades and Bettie Page types dancing on pink and turquoise cocktail tables. Tiki holidays in Hawaii with the sweet smell of 'jazz cigarettes' driving all the young folk into a debauched, kitsch-trash frenzy. Simply 'Crazy man, crazy'!
Veteran DJ Format is as much loved by hip hop heads as he is by the likes of Gilles Peterson. In his time he's gone from b-boy breaks to making early electronica as one half of The Simonsound - and here he reveals yet another new inspiration: obscure '60s and '70s psyche. There are 13 rare cuts from across the globe, all of which are both educational and mind expanding. Highlights include 49th Blue Streak's utterly vicious, fuzzed-out cover of "Foxy Lady", the slinky, organ led "Tyden V Elektrickem Meste" by Flamego and the orgiastic percussive grooves of Pro Art "Stari Dvotac". Far out!
