SKEEWIFF: Put Your Hands Together

SKEEWIFF:  Put Your Hands TogetherRating: ★★★★★ Ladies and gentlemen, it’s always an event when a Skeewiff album comes out so put your hands together for the new LP entitled – er – Put Your Hands Together. Of course posting about such an event a month after its release could be seen as somewhat remiss – but then that’s the autumn release schedule isn’t it? Everything comes at once and trying to stay on top

SKEEWIFF: Skeewiff In Wonderland (2017)

Skeewiff In WonderlandRating: ★★★★★ Skeewiff were beginning to get very tired of listening to boring old breakbeats, and of having nothing to do. Once or twice they had peeped other people’s steez but it was all excessively conventional, ‘and what is the use of a breakbeat track,’ they thought, ‘if it doesn’t make you say, ‘what the bloody hell are these two on?’ They were considering in their own minds whether

DAYTONER: Synchronicity (2015)

Synchronicity DaytonerGood lord! Has it really been three years since Daytoner‘s Wass Records debut? The answer is ‘yes’, as he finally provides a follow-up to the sample-delic, genre-hopping, retro-beat-fest that was 2012’s Sunburst Radio. Mind you three years is a relatively swift wait given that new label (Skeewiff’s Pedigree Cuts) took the practically insane step of telling a producer to “take as long

SKEEWIFF: Skeewiff in Brazil (2014)

In Brazil SkeewiffRating: ★★★★★ It seems someone’s been wiggling down the Copacabana in a tanga thong gathering inspiration for Skeewiff In Brazil. Skeewiff in Brazil? Oh what – bossa breakin? Samba stylin? A bit of drum n Bebel? Some ghetto Gilberto? Yep – that sort of thing. That and more in fact. No actual appearances from Astrid Gilberto (or Bebel come to that) at least not that I’m aware – but lots of

SKEEWIFF: Ghetto Latin & Broken Ballroom (2013)

Here’s Skeewiff then, back once again and this time elegantly careering around European and Latin American musical history like some sort of sample-production Leslie Phillips. “Well hello! What’s your name then? Rumba? Rather! And your sister too? Samba? I say! Oh – there’s more of you – bossa, cumbia, tango and I believe I know polka and the waltz already? Ding dong! Well… what are

PEDIGREE CUTS: Pedigree Cuts Remixed! (2013)

It’s that Pedigree Cuts lot again. No not the dog grooming service from County Durham – they’re hardly likely to put out a twenty-two strong remix compilation are they? I’m referring to Skeewiff‘s label of course. Twenty-two remixes? Have they got that many? Man, you don’t know the half of it – this is just the best of the recent ones. In fact this mainly consists of much of Skeewiff’s recent Man

KABANJAK: Echoes In The Night (2013)

Echoes in the night? I get a few of them around my way. There one is – peaceably enjoying the evening – when suddenly the silence is shattered by something along the lines of “leave it Dave, he’s not worth it!” reverberating along the road. After midnight on weekends, anyway. There’s nothing to harsh your mellow on Kabanjak‘s new full-length effort though
