The Third Annual War Child Fundraiser

Craigie Knowes
This collection spread across two 12”s (or digital packages) helps raise funds for children in war zones around the world. A righteous enough reason to purchase already, but the tunes contained within are something else. In addition to jungle, acid and house tracks, there are several essential electro cuts here. DJ Overdose offers the apocalyptic boogie of ‘More Ounce’, a lowrider rattling mix of ascending Kraftwerk synth and slamming Miami bass beats. Textasy remixes fellow Dallas producer Cygnus’s ‘laaafos Blank Mix’, bringing the ominous chrome funk with crispy beats, though William The Squid’s ‘Arab Sun’ is the standout: a dreamy acidic number.
