Review: The Vanguard Project combines Bcee and Villem, two long-time liquid titans who have their debut LP as a duo out very soon. A self-titled piece of work, The Vanguard Project brings 12 new tracks alongside 14 classics from their joint back-catalogue, a sprawling release which dips its toes into virtually every flavour imaginable. 'Everyday is Stolen' feat. DRS was the first single to be released and we can see why, a standout track that beautifully combines his talent for spitting with singing. 'The Unknown' and 'Wicked Man' are both perfectly weighted jungle tracks, full of soul and bursting with the character of music which packs edge and funk at the same time. Dynamite MC and Leo Wood also both feature, the latter is a regular on Spearhead now and 'Elevate' is a driven, bass heavy track that frolicks with vocal touches and funky guitar flourishes. Unreal stuff here from two legends of the game.
Review: If you've ever heard 'Another Brick In The Wall' and thought "What this really needs is an extended Italo synth intro," then this is the EP for you, as the Pirate Edits crew serve up 16 more dancefloor reworks of vintage favourites including Sister Sledge's 'Lost In Music', Space's 'Carry On, Turn Me On', Chaka Khan's 'I Know You, I Live You' and The Joubert Singers' 'Stand On The word', as well as many other, more obscure disco and boogie nuggets. There's a slightly 'kitchen sink' approach to the production at times, but disco and funk spinners should still find plenty of fresh dancefloor ammunition here.
