Review: This week on Bedrock we finally receive an eagerly awaited track that sees the light of day, that has been a feature in label co-head John Digweed's acclaimed DJ sets recently. It is a result of the dream team DNA Presents, featuring progressive house veteran Charlie May, co-founder and resident of Never Say Never (Ushuaia) Dimitri Nakov, plus legendary Belgian-Egyptian vocalist Natascha Atlas and Czech producer Roman Rai (Moving Pictures). "Slip 'N' Slide" is slinky and hypnotic mood music that's perfect for the morning hours, with its sensual groove and Atlas' mesmerising vocal being a constant throughout.
Review: Had enough of Ibiza's pounding tribal house and party minimal sounds? Bedrock feels the same way. Or at least for the duration of this excellent compilation they do. Jon Digweed has used his A&R (and persuasive) powers to their fullest, commissioning ambient and down tempo pieces from artists more commonly associated with peak-time club bangers. King Unique and Charlie May contribute haunting, fragile ambient tracks; the Ibiza Summer Balearic remix of Jimmy Van M and AFFKT' "Dreams" featuring Luxor T comprises lazy beats and sun-kissed vocals, while best of all, the Japanese Popstars' "Out Of Nowhere (Reprise)" is a stunningly cinematic ambient trance piece.
