baze.djunkiii Charts 10/2010

01. Chesus X Diverse Concepts - Baduka / C.R.S.T. - Bump [Ten Thousand Yen 002]
Two excellent pieces of Future-/ SpeedGarage released as limited to 350 edition on purple 10" vinyl. Guess this one's to be regarded as sought after item in the near future but is not only recommended to collectors but all those lovers of UK Street Music.

02. Pete Heller - Nu Acid [Bedrock 093a]
Calling a track "Nu Acid" in 2010, more than 20 years after the first tweaking 303-lines emerged from the deepest underground of that time, is quite a statement, even more when this one is meant to be released via the former Progressive / Trance-imprint Bedrock.  But Pete Heller, who's been on the circuit for about two decades now, is very aware of his abilities and fuses his Acid with housey, uplifting and filtered stabs reminiscing about a time when tracks like "Good Life" or "Big Fun" were ruling dancefloors big time. On the flip we've got Robert Babicz - a.k.a. Rob Acid for those who didn't knew it - coming up with his "Robert Babicz Smiling Remix", a variation more prime time and driving and made for all true Acid heads out there.

03. Zombie Zombie Plays John Carpenter [Versatile Records]
What a great piece that sees Zombie Zombie doing reinterpretations of five famous movie themes, all originally composed by one of the original film music greats, noone less than Mr.John Carpenter himself. Not only that the artwork is very similar to the C.I. used by DC Recordings these days, it seems like this 12" could've been released on that label as well as the musical directions varies from somewhat krauty to Cosmic and back, fitting perfectly in to all kinds of Freestyle, Cosmic or Leftfield DJ-sets not necessarily based on a straight 4/4. So which movie themes are to be found here? It's "The Bank Robbery", "Escape From L.A.", "Assault from Precinct 13", "Halloween" and "The Thing" - pieces regarded as classics by cineasts and film music lovers alike.

04. El-B - Dirty E.P. [Night Audio 003] 
The uncrowned king of Dark Garage and Sublow serves a 12" featuring four new tracks somewhat in between of the mentioned genres and introducing talents like Laze, Nico, Rolla and Skolz to a wider audience as all of these tunes are co-productions and collaborational works. Especially "This Thrill" will be appreciated by bass music followers worldwide, no matter if stuck to the classic Dark Garage or recent productions whilst tunes like "Dirty Flow" pay respect to  all Grime/Dubstep hybrids on teh circuit these days.

05. Alex Flatner & Lopazz - Dinosaurs [Poker Flat Recordings 114 Promo]
See review for details...

06. Phonique vs Tigerskin - Longdrink E.P. [Ladies & Gentlemen 006 Promo]
See review for details...

07. Dels - Shapeshift [Whitelabel]
Not sure which label's responsible for this 12" that explores terrains of Mutant HipHop, Grime and UK Urban at the same time and holds five mixes of the "Shapeshift"-tune. If you see it just grab it blindfolded as it's limited to 300 hand numbered copies - mine is copy no. 221 so it might be sold out already.

08. Phonique - Perfect Stranger [Dessous Recordings 098]
See review for details...

09. Captain Capa & Supershirt - Tote Tiere [Audiolith Promo]

10. ULTRNX - The Byterockin' EP [Audiolith / Riptide Recordings Promo]
