The usual suspects of this genre are in evidence – Plump DJs, Meat Katie, Lee Coombs, BLIM – all making excellent contributions. D Ramirez’ track ‘Venus & Mars’ in particular stamps its personality on the opening part of the mix, the pissed off female vocal coming back to haunt you again and again.
The middle section revives a couple of 90s gems, with Basement Jaxx’s ‘Fly Life’ a killer South London break, and Jaydee’s ‘Plastic Dreams’ given a breaks makeover by Andrea Davis. The two Plumps tracks are excellent too – ‘Bullet Train’ narrowly trumping Soul Of Man’s mix of ‘Creepshow’.
No need for fans of this genre to hesitate – Soul Of Man’s comp is right up there with the best of them, and provides enough trouser shaking bass for many a riotous night.
