V/A - Rmxxology Deluxe (Delicious Vinyl)


Web: http://www.deliciousvinyl.com
Delicious Vinyl’s logo is a guy taking a bite out of what must be one tasty piece of vinyl and over the years, the label has released some wholesome musical treats. On this retrospective compilation, flavoursome morsels of the hip hop and jazzified variety have been retooled for ‘electronic dancefloors’ by fashionable newbies and heavyweight producers. Treats on the first disc include Mr. Flash’s spinning revision of Masta Ace’s Sittin’ On Chrome and Diplo’s take on Young MC’s Bust A Move. Disc two features instrumental versions of remixes from disc one, where highs include the Philippians’ dreamy take on The Pharcyde’s timeless Runnin’. The second disc also features classics such as Young MC’s egotistical Know How. Rmxxology is a good example of a remix compilation where the tracks have been revisited in a manner where the remixes actually compliment the original versions.
