Review: UK label Bacci Brothers has been bringing you quality house and garage releases since the mid '90s and are still committed to bringing you the freshest material, even branching out in recent times. On their latest compilation, it does exactly what it says on the tin: 'Tech Minimal' indeed features some of the most cutting edge minimal and tech house tunes that you need to rock the party. Highlights are not limited to: the spiritual Afro vibe of Paolo Madzone Zampetti's remix of "Savannah Cat" which goes for that Innervisons kind of vibe, followed by his moody rework of Barbara Tucker's "You Want Me Back", elsewhere Tomas Bert's "Pan Pow" harks back to the golden sounds of the mid '00s when labels like m_nus and Tuning Spork reigned supreme, Eddy Kruger's druggy "Save Your Soul" will appeal to fans of the Little Helpers sound, and the very slick "Change Your Mind" by Baxx & Graur Bros. closes this fine release out in style.
Review: We always look forward to a new installment in the School Yard Breaks series, and with 25 more vintage gems on here, they haven't let us down. It's the same drill - obscure original tunes that provided famous samples - but with new thrills. Highlights include Bobby Byrd's raunchy groover "I Need Help I Can't Do It Alone" (best known for its "I know you got soul!" line), the '70s cop show grit of "E Colition Alpha" and Rabbit & Carrott's classic "Express Yourself" (famously reworked by N.W.A.).
