I've been waiting for this since 2008. For a while, I thought the Ed Banger crew were getting lazy and just not bothering to release anything decent. Oh how very wrong I was. They were merely biding their time and perfecting their art to bring us all this masterpiece of a compilation. Never have I been so blown away by a release. Every single track is a fucking work of art. Sadly, there's nothing from the Justice boys but I hear their next album is set for release in 2028 (YAAAY).
Anyway, the compilation itself is truly brilliant, I never thought I'd see the day when Skream and Mr Oizo are on the same compilation CD. Speaking of Skream, his contribution, 'Boat Party' is in-fucking-credible. I'd go so far as to say that it's my favorite track of the year so far. Other tracks of note are 'Grace' by Discodeine, 'Hipgnosis' by Duke Dumont, 'Infinity Riser' by Para One & Tacteel, 'Enio' by Sebastian and 'Shades of Black' by Breakbot. They're all on form, they're all beautiful and they're all dancefloor destroyers. I've chucked in my two favorite tracks as 192s so have a listen then grab the full compilation whenever you can. You should be able to grab it from Beatport sometime over the next week or so. Remember to support the Ed Banger Crew and purchase the full release. This has been a long time coming so it's well worth your dollar.
