US compilation kings Straight Up! rep the glitch scene once again. Their fifth collection in this series, it's business as usual as they explore every corner of the globe for the most exciting, creative sounds of the genre. Naturally they've nailed it as we're bombarded with raw creativity. Highlights include the lush emotional west coast funk synths of Au5 & Fractal's "Subvert", the psychedelic acid bubbles of Mizchief's savage dub-twisted "Hitman", the euphoric synth jet streams of Virtu's "Reyes" and the more experimental, tightly edited vocal cuts and insane reverse bass techniques on Left Side Dear's "Grapefruit Incident". 25 tracks in total, there's no better representation of contemporary glitches, Straight Up have delivered big time.
