Smoke Notes

One of the better production teams to emerge from the British and European "broken beat" scene (which also includes our own Nathan Haines and Mark de Clive-Lowe), a scene that seems to be bucking the stagnating trend of most other dance music genres, the six member collective known as Bugz In The Attic make music that is both propulsive and funky, yet lush and atmospheric. Unfortunately up until now their output has largely been either 12" single based, a Fabric "mixed" set, or the odd track/remix on various compilations. However 'Got The Bug', a collection of remixes commissioned by various sources, plus a couple of new tracks from BITA themselves, should go some way to placating the casual CD buyer until their debut full-length album is released later in 2005. Featuring the cream of the "broken beat", "nu soul" and house scenes, and including the likes of Rhian Benson (featuring rap outfit Slum Village and soul crooner Dwele), Vikter Duplaix, 4 Hero, Amy Winehouse, Amp Fiddler, Jazzanova, Nitin Sawhney, Afronaught, Markus Enochson with Eman (MAW Records), Gaelle (Naked Music) and Gene Harris, this is an eminently tasteful and vibrant blend of funked-up soul and jazzy house (and all and any points in between). Of their two new tracks, "Booty La La" with its funky Basement Jaxx sound, stands out, a particularly good omen for their upcoming album. Fans of the likes of 4 Hero, Jazzanova, Basement Jaxx, Amalgamation Of Soundz, Domu (and his various alias'), etc will find plenty to love on this fine collection, and the set also comes with a bonus 'Exclusive Bugz Mix' CD for those who want bit more of a party vibe. Recommended.
