Quotes: Managing to flirt with the dancefloor without getting caught up in any of those nasty four-to-the-floor shenanigans, this is an impressive set of modern dance music for the discerning listener. HHC / He (Robert Jan Meyer) makes the kind of uplifting saccharine-soul that, if he won Pop Idol, would ensure Prozac was never needed again. Pass the Minus 8 album, Mr Young, another dose is required. Mix Mag
Info: This might be the most unusual Minus 8 track you´ve heard so far and we´re quite proud presenting that one. Coming up with dancehall master Ras Charmer aka Bobo Curt-Chalmar Crutchley it`s the very first time such Reggae track is released on Compost Records. Charmer whose album debut “No Mystery” of Togetherness Records produced by Sly & Robbie has been praised by press and critics alike charms the crowd with his innovative mix of Dancehall and Reggae, Hip Hop and R&B. With his “strightly conscious lyrics” and his Sing-Jay-Style he´s adduced as evidence he well deserves being compared to well-known Jamaica-based dancehall artists such as Junior Kelly or an early Sizzla. Minus 8 lovers will surely approve of Robert Jan Meyer kicking in with straight Drum`n Bass on the second mix of “Brave And Bold”. Dj and producer Mark Goodings better known as Max Fresh showcases a typical Hidden Agenda remix : A hybrid of 2Step and Drum`n Bass influenced clubmusic you´ll find extremely difficult not to move your derriere to. Last but not least chilled dopey Dub from Dubversive Soundsystem, guess one of the best and well-known Swiss sound-system, coming to your ears like water in a desert, a revelation. Beware for this is brave & bold indeed !
