Review: Australian commercial house act Yolanda Be Cool know how to make a floor-filling anthem. Here we find their popular hit "Soul Makossa (Money)" receive even more remix treatments - there are a whopping ten versions included. No doubt there will be something for everyone, with some of our faves including the moody carnival riot of the Zed Bias' "Hypnotic" remix, DJ Kone & Marc Palacios' steamy tribal romper and Daras/Perez/Ferrer's raw electro-house belter.
Whiiite & Kids At The Bar - "Torment" (ETC ETC remix) - (4:19) 150 BPM
DJ Butcher - "What You Wan' Do" - (3:50) 150 BPM
Noy (AUS) - "What's He Say" (feat MC Profit) - (3:22) 145 BPM
Review: The Vicious Bitch sound isn't particularly complicated or subtle; the Melbourne-based label's speciality is the sort of balls-out, rave and electro-influenced dubstep that frequently whips dancefloors into a frenzy of flailing arms and legs. If you've yet to sample their ear-bashing, eye-popping style, this first label compilation is as good a place as anywhere to start. It features notable anthems from Gold Top ("Bumba"), former electroclash type Tommie Sunshine (now making Juke-influenced madness in the shape of "Cool Without You"), Peking Duck (the snaking "I Love To Rap"), label stalwarts Filthy Disco ("The King"), and Tomderson (the clap-happy "Madwase"), as well as loads of other in-your-face fare.
