Review: If life teaches you anything it's to expect the unexpected. Here the mighty re-edit label Katakana deliver their 42nd instalment of scapel jobs. However, this time, rather than have a specific producer curate an EP, they've shaken up the formula and delivered a compilation of edits. There's a whopping 24 reworks to enjoy too, many thrills and spills, but our favourites include Morlack's explosive drum-lead MJ cover, "Don't Stop", Mister Vagz' corny 60s mash-up "Love Me Venus" and Dim Zach & Deem's baggy rework of the Happy Monday's sublime "Loose Fit".
Review: Nothing cheap about the complier of the latest installment of Katakana Edits series. Cheapedits has lined up a sizzling selection of party-orientated scalpel jobs, and gives The Supremes a thorough early 90s hip-house makeover on "Stopin". Inxs get a sleazy big beat facelift on "Tonight", and it's all about the vintage 60s shuffle on "Blacktel". "Buyer" provides some poppy ska and "Qui Qui" wraps things up with closing-time-at-a-tequila-bar vibe.
