Ah Corpsey since you posted that it’s prompted me to listen to that Burial/Kode 9 mix again. Except the crappy Zomby tune at the start, that whole mix is amazing, some don’t like the rain/sampling over the top but I think that really adds to the atmosphere (I could imagine this set in a club with loads of fucking psychedelic/dark/saw film type visuals on the walls and on the ceiling, proper fuck people up), also the tune selection after that (bar the zomby, cooly g one and a couple after the prince tune) is fucking top form. The prince tune I especially love.It's all about
I agree, even the 2nd box of dub release was weak.Is it just me or does anyone else feel like a lot of the soul jazz output is producer's offcuts. I seldom hear anything they put out that is anything like the top of the producer's output apart from a few years ago with the misty winter/earth a run red/ladybug 12s. Constantly underwhelmed by their output within the 'bass continuum'
Nice to see Kode9, LV and Grievous Angel on there. They've made by far some of the best funky, imo.soul jazz has a 2cd funky comp coming soon: http://www.piccadillyrecords.com/products/VariousArtists-RiddimBox-SoulJazz-72427.html
thats a really lazy tracklisting tbh. i suppose its alright if they are just going for a greatist hits 08-09 kind of thing but stillsoul jazz has a 2cd funky comp coming soon: http://www.piccadillyrecords.com/products/VariousArtists-RiddimBox-SoulJazz-72427.html
if you want a comp that introduces you track by track to a hard to pin down genre, with no hits, and not much in the way of presence it's a really great comp.thats a really lazy tracklisting tbh. i suppose its alright if they are just going for a greatist hits 08-09 kind of thing but still
