Review: Hero No 7 were leading lights of the UK mash up/party cuts scene of the late 90s even going so far as having a track featured on The Herbaliser's Fabric mix cd. They also run their eponymous record label and here we have a 13-track compilation of their (own) output, which also includes some of their best remixes of other acts. Sounding surprisingly fresh, we find that perky breakbeats fused with snippets of found vocals and vintage funk samples are the order of the day. Standout tracks include the moody "Black Mountain" and the eerie "Futuristics".

Review: This should be considered something of a treat for funk breaks fans. In a bid to raise funds for the Love Music, Hate Racism charity, it gathers together tracks from both heavy hitters (Badboe, Fort Knox Five, Zamali etc) and lesser-known talents on one action-packed compilation. If this kind of party-rocking fun is your thing, it should be an essential purchase, not least because it includes some fine material. Check in particular Super Combo Funk's trad funk/P-funk fusion "I Don't Need No Dope", PulpFusion's fuzzy "Rockin Kids" and the wobble-step influenced "Boob Job" from Bristolian Ewan Hoozami, who happens to be the son of former England rugby player Alistair Hignell.
