Review: This label recently launched by DJ Spinforth (and pals) as a next step extension to his biweekly column for the Ghetto Funk blog called 'The Scour', to highlight and showcase the unsigned talent that he encounters while 'scouring' Soundcloud. The next logical step was to actually release this stuff, so here's the impressive debut compilation snappily called Scoured Cream. Originally intended to showcase just five tunes, its now boasts eight including the stop-start blues-hop of "Sun No Shine", the wobble-soul of "Hell Yeah" and some electro-swing courtesy of Hong Kong Ping Pong.
Review: Some releases arrive with such literal titles that they don't require much explaining. This latest release by Vienna-based 'glitch-hop' DJ, B Visible, is crammed full of chopped-up old disco samples laid over a contemporary beat. "Disko Chop" sees the likes of Outkast sampled over an old skool g-funk groove; "Priceless Smile" features a similar beat, with added disco strings and chopped up R&B vocals. "Bad Crusher" is sparse, doomy electro-funk, and finally "Hit The Bottle" is a perky closer, despite featuring a sample of Trigga's dark anthem, 'No Tomorrow'.
