Review: This is an excellent little Bitches Brew retrospective from label boss, DJ, promoter and producer extraordinaire Cosmo. Starting with the electronic soul elegy of Chi aka Cosmo's "Mistaken" branded by the distinctive vox of her long time muse Billie Godfrey, your ears are treated to Bambu's instrumental of their timeless Sergio Mendes cover and Jimpster's 2003 Rhodes heavy house rerub of Jinadu. The metallic rhythms and dubbed atmospherics of the MC Chickaboo featuring Freek by The Flaws make this a worthy purchase for those that dabble in melding deep house with more Latin and broken beat flavours.

Review: A supremely cool sampler from nu-soul label Bitches Brew that features a wealth of different talents coming together to make some sweet and smooth treats. Opener Jam features MC Chickaboo (Soul 2 Soul, Goldie, Timo Maas) on the vocals and Attica Blues' Charlie Dark on the remix, turning it into a lowdown "dubstrumental" complete with rollicking drums and some seriously squelchy bass. Jinadu's Natural Thing gets remixed by broken beat hero Domu and it's a typically enthralling workout of crisp jazzy drums and  beautiful floating melodies placed delicately on top.
Label founder Cosmo weighs in with the gorgeous Mistaken, done under her Ch'i alias and with vocalist Billie Godfrey up front on the mic, turning in a deliciously melancholy yet powerful vocal, backed up with some Roy Ayres-style vibes action for good measure. The Broken mix of Jinadu's Turning The Tide is another revelation, mixing up Rhodes stabs and some precision beats along with a vocal that bores it's way into your memory bank after a couple of listens.

Two standout cover versions round off this excellent compilation - Bamba take on Linda Williams' jazz-funk classic Elevate Your Mind and also turn in a Latin-flavoured version of Stevie Wonder's The Real Thing. Both of them are faithful and clearly done with a lot of reverence to the originals - a testament to a label that has soul running through it's veins as this collection shows.
