King Yoof - "Soundboy Love" (feat Rony Blue & Mr Williamz - Toronto Is Broken remix) - (3:52) 174 BPM
King Yoof - "Continious Mix" - (57:50) 144 BPM
Jay Cunning's Sub Slayers get busy with a brand Bass Selection compendium. Giving the artist full artistic duties without compromise, King Yoof has taken the opportunity to amass some of his best soundsystem-tuned rolling skank-up bangers. From breaks to dubstep to D&B, the whole breakbeat spectrum is covered with special attention paid to dubwise and dancehall vocals. Highlights include a mid-zeros style electro-bass twist on Barrington Levy ("Murderer"), the stabby steppy paranoia of "Big Belly Riddim" and the evergreen harmoniousness of Aswad on Rhythm Riders' "Give Me A Sign". That's just three of 20 unmixed bullets ready for your playlist consumption. Get busy.
Trash The Wax Vol 2 (continuous DJ mix) - (2:02:38) 117 BPM
Fresh from the runaway success of his brilliant "Sunny Bigler" single, Leon Sweet has been installed as the man behind the decks for the second volume of Paper Disco's Trash The Wax series. Sweet's two-hour DJ mix is excellent, of course, but it's the unmixed tracks - a combination of unheard bits and recent Paper gems - that make this compilation essential. Expect a range of re-edits and original tracks that variously touch on nu-disco, Italo, boogie and, of course, house. Highlights are plentiful, and include a trippy slow acid version of The Balearic Beat Boy's "Waiting For Me", a typically rubbery mid-80s soul re-cit from 80s Child, and a killer, filter-heavy rework of Melba Moore by Neil Diablo.
