Warped Rhythms (a trip through 25 years of Warp Records)

Includes tracks from Boards of Canada, The Sabres of Paradise, Red Snapper, Jake Slazenger, Nightmares On Wax, Jamie Lidell, Link, Leila, Speedy J, LFO, Kenny Larkin, Luke Vibert, !!!, CSS, AFX and B12. As you'd expect from Warp Records it's a heady mix of styles and genres but it's held together by a common 'off kilter' attitude. 

A few of the tracks originally appeared on the Aphex Twins Rephlex imprint but they're by artists that have a long history with Warp (including RDJ himself).

Piccadilly Review

Underground legend, house veteran and musical encyclopedia Leftside Wobble is back with another diverse selection of killer edits and updates for your record box. His edit pedigree is second to none with the reel to reel rocking Greg Wilson giving maximum props to his Beatles "Tomorrow Never Knows" rework, while Piccadilly's own Patch and Silvestre caned his "Angel In My Pocket" regularly at their Discofutura night. Establishing X-Cursions as a celebration of the eclectic in dance music, the producer launches the inaugural release free from any genre constraint. The first EP contains a classic Loleatta Holloway disco edit, an Ike & Tina Turner balearic soul rework, and an Arthur Baker style electro funk track that's already an ever present for Bill Brewster and Justin Robertson.

Leftside Wobble kicks the release off with "Dub & Run", a Ronseal styled dub rework of Loleatta's evergreen "Hit & Run", which he stretches into an almighty groove complete with echo and multilayered vocals and guitars. It's lino-time on the flip as Leftside Wobble hits us with the electro snap, crackle and pop of "Boogie Box Droids", a freestyle sampling, Arthur Baker-esque cut featuring the best use of a speak 'n spell since the Oscar nominated "Theory Of Everything". Last but not least, LW fires up the hardware arsenal to wire up a wonked out cosmic rework of Ike & Tina's sublime Stevie Wonder cover. This perfectly judged rework adds just the right amount of backward guitar, psychedelic echo and kosmische keyboard to twist melons inside out, while the lopsided synth bass reminds me of the finest Create Use edits from way back when.

Ambient Jazz Ensemble - The Journey (Leftside Wobble 'Garden of Earthly Delights' Remix)

Just sit back and let this one slowly envelop you. From the gentle piano led intro, it builds to a rousing crescendo with the finest horn section you'll have heard in quite some time. Can't wait to play this one at sunset on the Beach Stage at The Garden Festival in a few weeks time. ;)

Due for release in the coming months.

Vikter Puff's on Acid (Leftside Wobble's Acid Soul Rub)

Put this together for the fine folk of Sancho Panza who have one of their legendary boat parties this Saturday night -

I unfortunately can't make it, so this little booty beauty will at least mean I can be there in spirit if not person. ;)
