Thought that Cecille was all about tool house? Think again. "Low Freq" could be Chicken Lips or a mellow take on the recent Kontra release by Frak, with a low slung bassline supporting an ominous vocal. Likewise, "Keep out the Red" sees H2 deploy a dark electro bass over mid-tempo drums and a daft stoner vocal sample. There are vocals throughout Life and it adds to the party atmosphere. From the rapper chatting over police sirens on "Bass, Kick And Roll" through the sexy female vocal that augments the soft-focus groove of "Break It Down" to the call and response narrative about partying for days on end over the rolling rhythm of "Cameron's Quest",
this is a real good time release.
Last year's inaugural Get Physical Tracks compilation did a good job flagging up artists to watch in 2012. This follow-up, featuring a seamless mix from Manchester-based production duo H2 and 10 unmixed cuts, aims to do similar. H2's own shuffling "Tape Machine" kicks off proceedings, before the collection wanders deeper into typical Get Physical territory (think wonky, pitched-down vocals, darkroom riffs and touchy-feely grooves). For those who enjoy the label's output, there's plenty to enjoy, from the sweet synths, soulful vocals and lazy grooves of Israel Vich's "Skalitzer", to the subtle, bleep-heavy tech-house fusion of Shea Burke's "Dave The Rave".
