DJ, author, journalist and all-round font of musical knowledge Bill Brewster is the owner of a killer record collection, so it's little surprise to see that Eskimo Recordings has asked him to curate an epic compilation. Tribal Rites is appearing in three parts. While later instalments focus on house and Balearica, this first edition delves into the post-punk section of the veteran selector's collection. Predictably, Brewster's selections are not only on-point but, for the most part, suitably obscure. Check, for example, the stretched-out jazz-rock-with-spoken-word weirdness of Agape's "Rejoice", the humid dub trip of Urang Otan's "Walking in the Jungle", the thrillingly tongue-in-cheek electro-pop silliness of Ploff's "Mein Walkman is Kaput" and the blissful brilliance of Motion's dub-fired lounge jazz number "Crazy Beat". And that's just for starters. In other words, you need this in your life.
