Another break from the norm with a party-orientated mix of more black plastic blasts from the past designed to keep you entertained this xmas season. Weatherall kicks off the proceedings with a progressive house trance number which neatly dissolves into Sunship's Come True on the Filter label - an absolute goldmine of futuristic filtered disco-funk (see also Box Saga's Blackfly for proof of their pedigree) they just don't make 'em like this anymore! Lil Louis' x-rated French Kiss is an unlikely dance floor filler with its proto-bump-and-grind tempo rollercoaster ride - a Chicago house classic. Denmark's excellent Lulu Rouge take the techdub slant into Rockers Hi-Fi's sublime B-side to the now famous Push Push (another shout-out to Circle of Children Ed for buying me this one to play out). Then it's back to more traditional baroquedub territory with some rootsy cuts from A.N.R and Dreadzone (here reworking Transglobal Underground). I-shensound sets the scene for Bob Skeng's wonderful conscious reggae before Tunng winds up the proceedings with a bittersweet history lesson well worth staying up for. Finally Dollboy's Ringers drifts off into a suitably seasonal tinkle of bells. Merry xmas everybody :)
