Review: No violence or fighting talk here, just pure love for innovative dancefloor gold from the heart of Prague. Deejay Astral sets the scene with soft focus breezes and a wonderful bumping subby low-end on "Polygon", Dx2ov gets a little freaky with a super cool spoken word sample, twisting around a wonked beat pattern and warped textures on "Teacher" while Jeals strips things back for a warehouse shattering machine funk meltdown on "Woolan". Finally Jus Jam close the show with two stellar tracks... The misty, loose-footed shuffle of "Y'all Ain't Ready" and the classic 1990 synth bass of "Make Ya Move". Czech it out.
Review: Happily, Neo Violence's third label sampler contains some real gems. It begins with Niro's "Nazca", a distinctively spacey affair that brings together echoing, dub techno style synthesizer motifs, shuffling tech-house drums and chords seemingly beamed down from another galaxy. VNZO's woozy "Relax Yourself" continues the fusion vibe (think ultra-deep Motor City techno mixed with dusty deep house), before NMSS and Jjuan pepper a cowbell-laden broken house groove with swirling chords and late '80s hip-house vocal samples. Another rock solid EP is drawn to a close via the rubbery, post-electro rhythms, darting bass and dreamy pads of Zolaa's standout "Fao-Mao".
