VARIOUS – RESENSE EP 008 – 2008 – Review

Rating: ★★★★½

The Austrians have given the world many things – Hitler, Arnold Schwarznegger and Falco being three of them – but hey – they’re making up for it now. This EP was listed as ‘Broken Beat/ Nu Jazz’ on one of my sources so I nearly missed out on this massive collection of funky mashed-up breaks about which there is nothing ‘broken’ and even less, ‘jazzy’. Sono Rhizmo’s opener So Ma Guisee is a so-so latin-skank that I found myself roundly ignoring in favour of The Bas Lexter Ensample’s no-nonsense uptempo brass-driven breakbeats on Bas Lexter’s Rock, Da Wiesel’s Mohawks, Meters and Sly Stone sampling Raw Rapture and Shantisan’s dnb-speed bossa nova latin-vocal Bring Back The Bossa Rock. It’s the sort of thing that keeps the Bombs and Nice Up crews on their toes. Rewind!
Out now on Resense Austrian.
