BBB0005 starts off with “Bert Stride”, a deliriously extended re-edit of Robert Palmer’s “Pride”. Super passionate and zany vocals play out over a reggae inflected groove with all manner of gonzo steel drum sounds. And the originals few-second drum break is extended into a minutes long bounty of dubbed out percussion and tripped out vocal looping/chopping. Next we have “Thanks But No Thanks”, a re-edit of Sunset Gun’s “Be Thankful for What You Got.” The track features a soulful vocal performance, sunny R&B harmonizing, a mid-tempo disco beat, and tasteful electric key solos. “Baateside (KBE Edit)” starts of the B-side with mournful and minor key pads giving a warm glow. The rubbery funked out bass holds down a steady yet journeying line over a tight funkbeat. Crunchy echo guitar chords and phased fuzz-soloing accompany spacey delayed piano. The original is “Alone in New York City” from Mo Foster’s Bass Themes album of library themes, here stretched to double the length. We end with “Leo’s Diner”, a stellar re-rub of “Ed’s Funky Diner” by It’s Immaterial. There is a bouncy shaker led beat, gated reverb drums and acoustic strumming under mallet instruments and brassy synths. When the melancholic singing enters, the track morphs into a folksy shuffle with affirming harmonies. The extended middle section of effected percussion and fx evolves into an epic guitar harmony section before fading out on delayed vocals and snaps. - The Sun lounge
