Digweed's label may have tipped its toes in mainstream dance with the recent Japanese Popstars album, but this release from long-time associate Jimmy Van M shows that its staple remains drum-heavy house. The tribal groove of 'Dreams' rolls in like thunder clouds on a clear sky, its rhythm breaking to reveal tantalising, tripped out vocals. "Lucid" is even more twisted, with a cacophony of horns threatening to drown out the chord-heavy breakdown. Just when the track threatens to spiral out of control, the dark drums kick back in. Finally, "Dreams (Dub)" is a more pulsing affair, its sleek riffs and throbbing bass speeding past like a nightdrive along Las Vegas' main drag.
Collaborations can be a tricky ol thing to get right, often conjured up for the wrong reasons or with results that lean too far to one parties side. It will come as no surprise that Bedrock hit the nail on the head, as here they pitch together Oliver Lieb and Jimmy Van M to form an exciting and dynamic meeting of minds for the launch of a new compilation series. Under the new Audible Suspects guise they unite as one in hand picking some great new music from the likes of; Pele & Findling, Ryan Davis, Thomas Muller, and of course many of their own productions. A genre defying mix of 12 tracks priced at just L5.99.
