Review: Erol Alkan's 2005 Bugged Out mix was a gateway release for many, soundtracking the entrance into club land, yet also introducing these virgin ears to more esoteric strains of music via the accompanying Bugged In Selection. Some seven years on, Alkan and the evergreen club brand have revisited the concept with a second edition, and like the inaugural release, the Phantasy Sound boss's ever lasting love for the vinyl format has seen a selection of tracks make the translation to this double vinyl release. Six tracks from the Bugged Out mix appear, with the Italo disco of Amin Peck brushing shoulders with Model 500 and an Obi Blanche edit of the Ron Hardy classic "Sensation", while the Bugged In Selection sees some psyche-folk fare from Buffalo Springfield and Space Lady among other gems.
Rinder & Lewis - "Gluttony" (Dompteur Mooner edit)
Barbara Norris - "It's Heavy" (Dompteur Mooner edit)
Tambien - "Quedarte" (vinyl only bonus track)
Equip - "XXXO"
NAD - "Distant Drums"
Dopplereffekt - "Infophysix"
Review: Inaugurated back in 2006, the frustratingly sporadic Elaste compilation series from former Zombie Nation man Dompteur Mooner arrives at it's fourth edition and offers another telling demonstration of his crate digging skills. Whilst the double CD edition features a few well-known cuts, this pared down double LP edition focuses on the lesser known gems - Mooner's own edit of Barbara Norris's "It's Heavy" aside. From the mystical disco of Charanjit Singh and Rinder & Lewis's unusual "Gluttony", to the deep analogue house of Disco D's "Beat It" and C Cat Trance's druggy "Shake It", Elaste Volume 4: Super Motion Disco comes across as a compilation from days gone by, when DJs were diggers and entrusted with the responsibility to guide the general public through unchartered sonic waters.
Review: Fresh from this year's Cordial collection comes this outstanding 12". The lead track is his most famous "Signs Of A Dying Love". Presented in all its full-length glory, listen to those powerful backing singers and hear why OG copies have gone for over 300 quid. Remix wise the previously unreleased "How I Feel For You" gets the rub from Ourra (big funk swing), DJ Spinna (thumping gospel boogie) and Sean P (full on vocal belter), each one a sign of a lovely release.
