H+P: Clyde Built 3.0 Compilation
Superb selection from the Glaswegian label, cohesively providing a taste of everything!
This is easily the best compilation yet from Huntleys + Palmers, I would go as far as to say nearly every track is worth paying for!
Opening with a bunch of vocal tracks, taking in skewed pop from LAPS and The Junto Club, wonky IDM from Sue Zuki and stripped-back electronic music from Kübler Ross and Woman's Aid makes for a great opening sequence.
The Letter favourites Lo Kindre provide more of their tasteful dub while one particular highlight comes from Tony + Morris's excellent cover version of DHS's House of God (a must listen).
Things really kick-off properly with Affi Koman's disco-drenched Crisis, initiating a selection of dancefloor-targeted tracks, almost all of which are essential. Acid from Fear-E and JHM, deep House from Alex Caslano, many shades of Techno from Kleft (banging) and Helena Celle (lo-fi). There's even some retro-sounding drum'n'bass from Baggy Clobber.
James Sandford closes things out perfectly with his monumental ambient track 59335 / The Strains Of Mass Singing.
A special shoutout goes to Henson & Bedges for best band name.
