Review: Is there ever a reason to doubt The Prototypes? The kings of floor filling d&b return with the anthemic "Don't Let Me Go", a tune so euphoric it deserves to be played loud and danced to with serious dedication. After the upbeat love-in of the first track then, take a minute to recharge with the dark and dirty "Humanoid", a rampant explosion of cinematic vocal samples and sci-fi soundtracking. Next comes three remixes of the title track starting with a chilled-out house re-fix by Jade Blue and then followed up by a Jade Blue piano remix. Adding funk and a bit of sexy slowness was a fantastic idea, taking it up to a sparklingly fresh big top remix for track five was an even better one. Sped up, slowed down, funked up, stripped back, either way, we love.
Review: After several successful releases together, UK soulful house stalwart Sean McCabe returns to ZR, this time for a remix/mix album. We handed over the keys to the vaults of Z Records parts and let him run wild in his underpants. The album features 6 new exclusive McCabe remixes - Monique Bingham, Blackbyrds, The Sunburst Band and Soul Dharma, plus Sean's interpretation of an unreleased Akabu song Time Line". That's all alongside many of Sean's classic remixes, plus his personal favourites from the extensive ZR catalog and a DJ mix.
