What a great compilation! At a time when the deluge of dance mixes has become an unstoppable torrent of blandness, this highly danceable compilation sticks up a thick middle finger at it all and dares to do something different. I got introduced to this by way of a friend who had it on cd, being disillusioned with most purely electronic music, I was receptive to a compilation that combined both recent releases and tracks from the 60s / 70s that displayed the same swagger and attitude.

My desire to get this comp for my own enjoyment was increased by a visit to the Blow Up club night which was then residing at the now defunct Wag Club on Wardour Street in London which championed this sort of sound. Jean Jacques Perrey - E.V.A. has been sampled countless times by Gang Starr amongst others and still sounds fresh and exciting today despite being over thirty years old. Many people will be familiar with Michael Viner's Incredible Bongo Band - Apache; if not the track, then the break - probably one of the most well known from the early block parties that spawned hiphop culture. That said, a new legion of producers are well represented with Jacknife Lee and Sunny Face, the latter with his latin-esque breakbeat track.

What's good about this compilation is the way it can re-invigorate a party when even the seamless mixing of the dj can get a bit monotonous. Both the follow up, Carry On Kinky Beats, and the Blow Up compilations are definitely worth checking out if you're into this, if only for Andy Stewart - The House Of Bamboo on the latter, which always goes down well wherever and whenever it's played.
