Review: Given the impressive number of labels he's released on over the last decade (Safer At Night, Throne of Blood, Let's Play House and OFF Recordings amongst them), we were rather surprised to find that this is Curses' first outing on Bordello a Parigi. There are two original cuts to choose from: "Pedal To The Metal & Don't Look Bad", a wonky Italo-disco jam full of fuzzy rock guitar riffs and spacey eight-bit synthesizer melodies, and the EBM-influenced throb of industrial strength workout "Knife In Teeth". Both cuts are given the remix treatment, with Tarr providing a more muscular, peak-time Italo revision of "Pedal To The Metal & Don't Look Back" before Birds of Paradise re-imagine "Knife In Teeth" as a drowsy and unusual chunk of industrial/IDM fusion.
Review: There aren't many labels operating within the spheres of bass music that are able to keep pace with the freight train that is Night Bass, who seem to be dropping a top draw release every three weeks at least. This latest project sees them compile the second edition of 'Night Bass Remixed', featuring some heavyweight recreations from the likes of APEXAPE, 219 Boys, Proxy and a bag more high profile names. For us, the immediate stand outs on this one have to come from Codes & Stranger who rework the magnificent 'Big Riddim' featuring Jamakabi, along with Taiki Nulight's powerful overhaul of the classic 'Keepmastik' from Phlegmatic Dogs.
