Recopilatoire II has taken a year and a half to get together, and features a whole load of existing Música Vermella artists, such as: Xtrngr, DjCode, KaostapesKain, Icebreaker, Yarkouy, 4cantons, Pisu, Madame, Wermonster, Spectateur and Ocoeur, as well as two new artists : Alphabetsheaven and Fatkut.
As anyone who’s listened to my podcasts know, I’m a sucker for those fragile sounds you get from Xylophones and synths that mimic them; so I was hooked by track one: Xtrng’s “Bell Mountain”. DJCode then gives us the disco-oriented “Up1″, before Madame gives us some glitchy/RnB/abstract hip-hopwith “Distressed”. Pisu, provides a surprisingly mellow track “Teletechno” before we’re back in the dubstep groove with Yarkouy (a.k.a. TSO) and “Human nature is so deceiving”.
KaostapesKain and Alphabet’s Heaven provide some mellow broken beats and then Fatkut takes the musical high-ground with an electro-acoustic piece “Anna”. Wermonster gives us “Underground Continental” a classy hip-hop track served with some broken rap. There’s a classic 8-bit games influence in “Scherer8″ by 4Cannons and some more hip-hoppy goodness from Spectateur. The final two tracks of broken beats are from Icebreaker and Ocoeur. 12 tracks in all of high-quality netlabel goodness.
