File under 'stone party starter', if you file your music in such a manner. And if you don't, well you can start with this from Cuthead, aka Robert Arnold of Dresden's Uncanny Valley crew. Your only remaining choice is which of the nine — yes nine — tracks you want to use to send things very messy indeed. Side B concentrates on Cuthead's predilection for off-centre hip-hop, but the first three options are purest house. 'Maputo Jam', 'Nautic Walking' and 'Minerals' could convince a crowd you're the second coming.
Saving this utterly unoriginal track from the humiliating depths of cheddar gorge is the Original Sin remix. The hands-in-the-air, aimed-at-the-freshers vibe is completely obliterated by the man's uncontrollable need to make the dance as dirty as possible. After a 45 second energy building intro the bass drops with dramatic and floor devastating effect, the rolling stomper includes a signature sounding screech. Another smash from the multi award winner.
San Fran man Nick Monaco is doubtless still reeling from the universal love for his recent bootleggy reworking of Alicia Keys' 'Unthinkable'. He'd better gird his loins for similar plaudits for 'The Stalker', a loose, torrid groove with mildly unsettling lyrics. Meanwhile, 'Boy Meets World' is a soulful, beguiling piano-led '90s party jam. The Soul Clap boys weigh in with a dirty dub of 'The Stalker', as does Wolf + Lamb family man Tanner Ross. Frenchman Wadz does his thang on 'Boy Meets World', purportedly a 'g-funk' mix, but it sounds straight boogie from here.
A band made up of a Japanese ex-punk singer, Swedish hockey player-turned-guitarist and a British hip-hop fan sounds quite an intriguing prospect, and the fact their EP is on Record Makers makes for even more reason to give it a spin. 'Fire' is a kind of down-tempo late nighter and Kasper Bjorke brings out a darker and more restrained feel in his remix, which is the best of the bunch included here.
