New funk label up in your face! Acquaint yourself with Stag, and to be honest details on the label are scarce - but who need words when you have the music. This first release delivers two styles, the disco dancing "Curtis Would Be Proud" that will have you feeling like you'll want to cover yourself in glitter and time travel back to Studio 54, while "Dub Disco (Part 1)" is a chilled reggae rhythm with housey grooves, splashes of Tropicana and horns.
Here's something of a novelty: alternative versions of alternative versions. As a partner to their deliciously dubby Versions LP - in which they reworked their own back catalogue - the Idjut Boys has decided to release a trio of new versions of their remixes. First up is "Kenny Dub Headband", a shorter, edited and re-dubbed rework of their freeform dub disco re-imagining of classic Kenny Hawkes' tribute "One For Kenny". While "Le Wesuk (Repress)" bears a striking similarity to the Versions album mix, the same can't be said for the flipside "Long LP Dub" of the same track. Utilising all of the weaponry in their stoner arsenal - bongo-laden rhythms, heavy additional percussion, jangling flashes of acoustic guitar, reverb and several tons of delay - the duo stretches the track out to 14 mesmerizing minutes.
