An incredible 23 years and 58 instalments into this series, School Yard Breaks' in-house team of cratediggers have been going deeper than ever in search of cool drum breaks, unexpectedly funky basslines and other turntablist-friendly sonic ammunition. Artists here range from Ennio Morricone to prog-rock survivors Camel, and from short-lived jazz-funk outfit Hot Fudge (AKA Jacky Giordano/Black Devil Disco Club) to French 'zeuhl' combo Eskaton, via forgotten 70s rockers Thunderhead 75. Maggie MacNeal's Ike & Tina-esque cover of Cream's 'White Room' and John Sangster's instrumental organ take on a 'Sgt Peppers' fave are among the highlights; a Carpenters cover in Russian (?) is perhaps less essential, but gives you a good idea of the wonky, eclectic vibe overall.
