Review: Premium booty-busters Actual Sounds unleash their mysterious in-house reversionista for this staggering 35 track compendium. Oozing references that sing back to dance music's most formative funky days, across the collection we're treated to versions of every possible dancefloor fave. From the bass-belching breakbeat take on Goldie's "Inner City Life" to the swinging filtered funk flex of Michael Jackson's "Off The Wall" via a roof-demolishing rip off Baby D's "Let Me Be Your Fantasy" Actual Phantom has a repertoire that will make all music lovers smile with both nostalgia and total hedonism. Bootlegs are ten a penny in this game, but few are crafted and packaged with as much care and attention as this.
Review: Actual Phantom deliver two huge breakbeat monsters on Actual Sounds. Sampling Skee Lo?s "I Wish" the two tracks pulsate and bang to the anthemic lyrics of the original. The Good to Grow mix combines big breaks with the classic hook before throwing in some breakbeat madness. The Hoops for Ballers remix sees faster beats and dirtier bass mixing with rolling drums.
