Smoke Notes

The Playground blueprint is quality mixed CDs and music from the leftfield, downbeat but not predictably so, and perhaps the strongest and most consistent DJ series available. Vienna based label Echo Chamber have made sure the quality has never dropped over the seven previous volumes and this latest edition from Cuica is certainly no different, mixing downbeat, broken soul and deep house into something of a late night classic. Switchs deep and funky Get Ya Dub On gets things started before the South London beat madness of Reach The Sky from Domu under his Bakura alias ups the tempo, its squelching bass and broken rhythm nothing less than intoxicating. Solid Grooves Flookin is built around a simple funk guitar and tricky time signature, with Eric Dolphy flute samples thrown in for good measure, while Bakazous stunning Risky Disko blends Detroit techno with organic bass and African percussion. Cuica close the album in a more reflective mood, dropping the tempo and opening up the atmosphere with cuts from Khan, the delicious Say Goodbye, and Yenneks spacious Serena X, Yennek being an alias for Detroit techno producer Kenny Larkin. Never lacking any dimension, Cuicas Playground is certainly a fine place to be, consistent throughout and packed with great underground music - if you are unfamiliar with this series, make sure you get this because youll want to show it off to all your friends forever.
