The sound of the sixties and seventies has never been so sought after as at the present moment. You could even argue that modern music just isn't good enough. As evidence consider this: contemporary producers and artists are often looking back to get inspired - insert staggering number of examples - so you can safely say that even in this digital age the beating heart of modern R&B and hip-hop is still vintage soul, funk and jazz. This is why BBE RECORDS have teamed up with DJ/Producer MR THING, to dig deep into his extensive collection to compile a series of albums of rare and sought after breaks. This series reflects brilliantly on his dedication to digging for those untouched and unrivalled samples and breaks as you hear him use in his DJ sets. As a DJ, Mr Thing never fails to engage the crowd with his winning combination of hip hop and funk breaks spiced up with his legendary mixing and scratching skills. A 2CD compilation, one disc full tracks, one disc a Mr Thing mix.
In the mystical world of ambient dub, Scorn have made themselves the undisputed masters. This is mainly because they have the ability to make a fresh and intriguing sound, which in a genre built on slow tempos and constant repetition is quite a feat. Anamnesis collects 11 unreleased or rare tracks from the band's most innovative period, including three from their 1994 Peel Sessions. "Almost Human" places its extremely deep, hypnotic bass pattern and somewhat scattered drumming underneath a drone of winds and a slow oscillation of brasslike tones. The piece lends itself well to a darkened room. "Beat 2 Version" combines its flowing bass and sparse kit drumbeat with the distant clanging of a prepared piano, all feeding into a general ambiance that is both restful and peaceful. --Michael C.

Live in Puerto Rico: Hip Hop Drum Bass Turntablism
Craze is the world’s greatest turntablist. Period. He holds five titles - 3 DMC (Disco Mix Club) World Championship Titles (the only one to win three years in a row – ‘98, ‘99 & 2000), 1998 ITF (International Turntablist Federation) scratching championship, 2000 DMC World Team Championship (with A-Trak). When he’s on stage, your eyes can’t keep up with his hands and your feet won’t keep still. Recorded live at a rave in the remote mountains of Puerto Rico, DJ Craze takes the revelers even higher with a supreme mash-up of underground hip-hop beats and ruff in the jungle drum-n-bass, cut, scratched, sliced, and diced on two turntables.
