What's there to be said about Bushwacka! that has not been already? The man known to his mum as Matthew Benjamin is synonymous with the UK tech house sound nigh on nearly three decades; heading up Olmeto Records with partner in crime Layo Paskin and legendary nightclub The End, as well as rubbing shoulders with fellow local legends like Mr C, Terry Francis and Nathan Coles. A tribute to Benjamin's back catalogue is well overdue, and Above Board Distribution has done a great job of presenting some of his seminal works between 1995 - 2005 here on 'Listen Up! Vol 02'. Featuring a broad selection of music taken from the cult Plank and Oblong labels, plus remixes from longtime friends and collaborators. Highlights come in the form of Mashupheadz "Blue Skies" (a collab with the aforementioned Coles), the deep acidified breaks of Tokamak's "Set Up" (which he did a grand job of remixing) or his distinct tribal house vibes best heard on "So Lonely" from back in '96.
