Review: When rocking the V's Edits guise, Valique has a bit of a soft spot for spoonerisms and chuckle-some tweaks of artist names and track titles. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to work out the identity of the vintage rockers whose tracks have been given the touch-up treatment on "Rock We Dance - The Brits". Billy Idol classic "White Wedding" is the first to get a good going over, with Valique turning it into a confirmed indie-dance smasher thanks to some beefy new beats, weightier bass and wiggly, TB-303 style acid lines. Deep Purple's "Hush" is then turned into a psychedelic disco-rock bumper, before the veteran DJ/producer offers up "Starlit" by "Fuse" - a deeper fusion of moonlit psychedelia, nu-disco colour and club-focused grooves.
Review: Denver label Plush Recordings proudly present a decidedly plump retrospective of their output from the past two years. Across the count'em 36 tracks some familiar names are naturally present displaying the various slants on the Plush output - be it gloriously liquid funk or half step hip hop embellishments to more atmospheric strands of the drum and bass. Commencing in style with the jazzy textures of Contract Killers, the subsequent and exhaustive selection contains highlights almost too numerous to pick out and thus our best advice is to let you dig in and find your own favourites!
