I'll second to this.. not all tracks are that hot but unlike most of the
comps around this brings some true underground stuff up.

Again, the V music artists (Roni Size, DJ Krust & DJ Die) and V music sub
labels (Dope Dragon (straightforward jump up), Full Cycle (more
experimental), Chronic (hardstep), V Records (all kinds of stuff), Philly
Blunt (gangstadelic hardstep)) are about the most consistent around what
comes to quality.

For stuff with jazzy / experimental elements check out

Bill Riley: the Chill b/w Future Funk (Full Cycle)
superb track with live guitar

DJ Krust: Memories b/w Priorities (Full Cycle)
excellent atmospheric piece..

DJ Krust: Jazz Note II (V Recordings)
actually i don't have this but I guess it has something to do with jazz..

DJ Die: Reincarnations b/w Stoned Groove (Full Cycle)
just too deep!! excellent to mix. Stoned Groove has some jazzier vibes
on the sample side. both excellent.


oh fuck i just got a mad idea..

i'll set up a V records web site, that's how much i love them!!!



helsinki underground @
