Just when you thought it was safe to buy another mash up ep, Aldo Vanucci is back and this time he's keeping it biff baff. Serani's "No Games" should have been the smash of the summer but they didn't ring Vanucci first, speechless. Next up Aldo takes Basement Jaxx back to their Brixton roots, Good Luck with Dat. On the flip he takes De La Soul's jiggiest moment and gives it a classic skank. Lastly a tune to bring back memories of New York basements and East London blues parties, Rayvon goes retro and rides Odyssey and Mantronix like it was made for it.
BB # 9 taps into the supreme power of Plymouth's self-proclaimed "14th Best DJ", namely Aldo Vanucci, who has remixed and produced for labels such as Catskills, Sunday Best, Rebtuz, Av8, Funk Weapons and more over the last few years. Here he delivers four diverse beauties sure to make this 12" a mainstay in the bag. Kicking off with 'Es Simplemente El Robo' - an uptempo breakbeat heavy re-working of Roborto Roenea's killer post-boogaloo Latin cut 'Que Se Sepa' - watch out for the slippery Latin disco morphology halfway through. Next up is'Tonight' - hip-hop breaks for days with a seriously sticky sourcing of Randy Crawford. On the B Side, Aldo mines mid 90's house cut 'Head On' by Ultra Boogie, flipping it into absolutely massive disco boogie territory. The session ends on an idyllic note with the pleasantly chopped and skewed Starlight Vocal Band sample and dusty breaks that make up 'Aldo's Delight'.
