SCOUR RECORDS: Scoured Cream Vol. 2 (2013)

Second time around for Scour Records and another breaks outing so varied it’s like a purchasable version of Spinforth’s Soundcloud Scour. Er – wait a minute…Anyway – as with Vol. 1 we open with a glitch. In the musical sense. In this case Warp9’s glitching electro swing number Lucas With The Glitch On. Subsequently, Buck Rogers lets the dogs out with his Funkdoobiest/ Bow Wow Wow-plundering Time to Rock, the HKPP boys give Pharoahe Monch a wobble on Funk You and J-Sound gets his judder on with Gang Starr-sampling Boss DAT. But the excitement doesn’t end there. X-Ray Ted has a fiddle on Jeeves (ghetto gypsy?) and the mighty Basement Freaks gives Cypress Hill’s Insane In The Brain a snarling ghetto-funk reboot – which is pretty much what Superfort does to Van Morrison on Gloria. The original of that, by the way, bears a more than passing resemblance to James Knight & The Butlers’ version of Save Me, fact fans – so similar in fact that it sounds like ‘Fort’s bunged a bit of it on at the end. My favourite though – apart from Warp9, obviously? The unusually-monikered Waggles & Bear Twists with pounding chain-gang chant Old Rosie. Sets sounding a bit tired breaks djs? Maybe you should put some cream on that…
(Out 21 March on Scour Records)
