Airwave - "Goodevil" (feat DJ Odilon) - (5:40) 150 BPM
Review: The trance fraternity was pleased to welcome back Airwave this year, a true pioneer of the genre who found a great new home in JOOF and deliver two brilliant LP's. To wrap up the 12 months they bring 'Dark Lines' and 'Bright Lights' together for a special bundle addition and what's more there are two exclusive bonus tracks, a 2012 remaster of 'Save Me' and an Unplugged mix of 'When Things Go Wrong'. Two albums for the price of one, so if you missed out on either of these journeys through trance the first time round, make sure you grab them now!
Review: NSB Radio faves Definition celebrate the big five-oh with this bass behemoth, and the world is at once a better place. Oozing filth from familiar faces and a few freshies, this entire collection is seeped in breakbeat beauty. With future-gazing heroics and heritage nods alike, each one of these cuts is a dancefloor blunderbuss. From Eddie Voyager's rusted amen assault "My Way" to Manu Twister's psychedelic shock-out "8-Bits", this bangs and twangs with all the best attributes that shaped breakbeat in the first place while looking firmly forward. Here's to another 50 releases.
Review: Six years after the release of their first inspirational Late Night Tales mix, fey Scottish post-indie miserablists Belle & Sebastian unveil a second volume. Given the unusual and exciting nature of their first collection, hopes are naturally high for Volume 2. Thankfully, it's every bit as odd, enjoyable and enlightening as the first edition. Psychedelic folk-pop, Indian soul, Balkan beats, Spanish crooners, Chanson ballads, film soundtrack compositions, Gold Panda, The Lovin' Spoonful, dancehall, The Pop Group and Pete Shelley all feature, alongside a range of thrillingly strange records that defy easy categorization. As a collection of music, it's breathtakingly brilliant, while the accompanying DJ mix is wonderful.
