Review: 10 years deep and counting; DJ Hybrid's Audio Addict are celebrating the big milestone with a whole brace of absurd updates on already slamming originals. Digging deep over the archives, the likes of Kastro, Hexa, Rantic, Dunk, Shayper, Zoro, Epicentre and many more all get their grubby mitts on some serious Audio Addict classics. Highlights include Zoro's brilliantly bubblesome old school twist on DJ Hybrid's 'Mix & Blend', Crossy's spacefunk bass grunts on his remix of Kartoon's 'Soundboy Surrender' and Epicentre's insane twists and touches on his remix of Scattyone's 'Give It To Me'. And that's just the tip of the remix iceberg. Huge shouts to Audio Addict for 10 years of ardent, loyal service!
Review: Back in the mid 1970s, young engineer Terry 'T.K' Kane and Harry Stone joined forces to launch a studio and record distribution business in Miami. It would spawn a huge number of in-house labels, and even greater number of funk and disco releases, and even a string of million-selling artists. Given this legacy, it's little surprise to see Athens of the North paying tribute to the funk side of Henry Stone's impressive legacy with this superb collection. While there are a few tried-and-tested cuts to be found - see the T Connection and Little Beaver cuts - for the most part The Miami Sound focuses on more obscure - but no less hard-hitting - gems from the likes of Jonny K, Stevens & Foster and Leno Philips.
