So I got word that there’s a brand new electro blues comp comin’ out soon… ‘Electro-Blues Vol. 2,’ and from the preview I heard, it sounds pretty fun.
Who is responsible? These folks:
So, I figure I’ll post the promo given, because they Freshly Squeezed Music wraps up their release pretty nicely.
It’s been just over a year since the launch of Electro-Blues Vol.1. After an incredible 14 months programming stages from Glastonbury to Bestival and monthly residencies in London and Brightons club land, Freshly Squeezed now return with the second instalment of this groundbreaking compilation series and a further 12″ vinyl sampler lifted from it.
Vol.2 whets the appetite for the forthcoming double CD with a second eclectic helping of blues-based dance-floor goodness.
Bobby C Sound TV – “the master of funky breaks” (Krafty Kuts) – and self-appointed president of Ghetto Funk – weights in with a little Rhythm and Blues booty that smashes the door down and totally comes into it’s own at club volume. Ecklectic Mick makes an emphatic return, meeting with Brighton’s studio dub-maestro King Chubby to present a second exclusive slab of wildly infectious blues. And then, to top it all, we throw in an absolute cracker from Switzerland’s Cee-Roo that heats things up to boiling point.
This is tried and tested dance-floor dynamite and expected to disappear off the racks to become a collectors item just as quickly as it’s predecessor.
It’s a tantalising hint of what to expect on the upcoming Electro-Blues Vol.2 double CD compilation, highlighting the broad appeal (and divergent styles) of this micro vintage remix genre that is quickly finding it’s feet. Do not miss. This will fly.
