Invasion Of The Mysteron Killer Sounds

Wow, the mighty SoulJazz have pulled it off once again. I just love how the label is always on top of things, but go about their business with a different angle. With the current explosion of the genre most commonly known as "wotyoucallit?" (in which hiphop, reggae, dubstep, house, steeldrums, 90's dance and whatnot are beautifully amalgamated into something new) the label decided to release a compilation of their own. Not with the biggest, newest and illest tracks of the moment. Anyone with an internet connection and a guide to Soundcloud can do that. No, Souljazz started digging their crates and came up with a selection of tracks from producers from all over the world, who were far ahead of their time (Jamaican producer Dave Kelly of Madhouse was actually aeons ahead of his time) and who (might have) influenced the craftsmen of today. And by doing that, they actually did come up with the illest, baddest and dopest beats around. Which the label gratefully stacked onto a compilation with a million dollar name. Cop it, listen to it, use it, learn from it and start digging some more. Mix 'em with anything new and your set will never be same...
