Our second compilation, "Dirtybeatbreakinfunkandhiphop"
was released on CD in February. The compilation brought together
the best of the single releases since 2001 plus a few brand new
tracks. 2 tracks from the album that got really good reactions across
the board from press and radio were the contributions from Color
Climax and The Abdominal Showmen.
Now both tracks are available on 12" with
remixes and instrumental versions.
Side A - Color Climax
A1 - Batidas Latinas (Remix)
A2 - Crabwalk
A3 - Batidas Latinas (Original)
Color Climax contributed a few tracks to the compilation but Batidas
Latinas from our best selling 7" got more props than any other track.
The original version is a nice funky latinesque number. Perfect
for the Summer! However, the band (a 4 piece from Coventry), were
never completely happy with the original so here they've remixed
it, with heavier drums, a guitar workout and completely changed
arrangement. Heavy dancefloor ish! We've also thrown in Crabwalk
from the B side of the original Batidas Latinas 7" (now completely
sold out!). The drum breaks on this track have made it a b-boy classic
so its nice to have this on a 12" for those DJ's that like to spin
back 2 copies.
Side AA - The Abdominal Showmen
AA1 - Organic (Vocal)
AA2 - Organic (Instrumental)
The Abdominal Showmen are a band from Edinburgh who
play an amazing live set but have yet to release anything on vinyl.
They passed a demo CD to Rob Life when he was playing up there about
3 years ago. As soon as we played the CD, we realised these guys
were onto something different. The Showmen are a 6 piece band with
a rapper on the vocals. The music they make is incredible. Heavy
on the drums and bass with some quirky Korg keyboard action these
guys demand another listen. We played a few tracks in clubs and
on radio when deciding what to do with their material and we got
a lot of feedback about the amazing music the Scottish rapper. His
accent is a bit too difficult for some people to accept but give
it a listen and you'll hear he's got good skills and flow and has
written an amazing tale about finding some seeds whilst rummaging
through underwear in a charity shop. These seeds give birth to a
new species and the rest of the story is something I'll leave you
to have a listen to. Deep! For those that can't get with the vocals
we've also included an instrumental version. Check the music on
this and we challenge you not to tap your toes! All the feedback
we got from the compilation was that it was an interesting varied
listen. We hope you'll agree that this 12" takes that variety a
bit further. Enjoy!
