Glasgow crew Mungos get the all-direction remix treatment for the second version compendium of the year. All flavours of dancehall and soundsystem material covered as the likes of FleCK, Chopstick, Run Tingz Cru and the mighty Vadim stick their sonic oar in and get busy. Highlights include the crystalline skank shimmers of Aquarius's take on "Jah Say Love", the militant snare rolls and punching kicks of Vadim's take on "Thousand Style". Those thirsty for jungle juice should jump on Chopstick's rattling ragga slammer "Nice It Up" and Run Tingz Cru's cheeky, burping bass jump up jam. Get serious.
Velvet version business, Portsmouth skanker Subtifuge teams up with renowned toaster Khari Kill for an instantly recognisable riddim burner. Remix-wise Danny T crisps up the drums with more emphasis on the highs, Jamie Bostron gets busy on a firing and funky jump up feeling while Token Selekta taps the track back into a timeless jungle idea with some superbly edited amens. One for the Headz.
Irish skank-wise five piece Bionic Rats revisit a highlight from their 2012 album Seen & Not Heard. Armed with an instantly catchy chorus it's a sun-funked jam that lends itself particularly well to remixes. Which is good, because we have four to choose from: Bobby C Sound TV goes all '80s synth boogie, Max Rubabub puts the dub back into Dublin with a very authentic spacious version, Origin One add a whole bucket of sub while maintaining the upbeat flow while Dirty Dubsters get high on jungle juice and lay down an awesome D&B twister.
