Album Review

Wide Hive Remixed [coll] – [Wide Hive]

Dianthus   1/2/2012   12-inch, Hip Hop

15 bass- driven tracks dig deep into the grooves on this base driven- double LP on SF’s Wide Hive Records. Elements of Hip-Hop, House, Downtempo, Dub and Electro can be found on this collection that can get the party started or help make your car go- BOOM! Sultry female vocals will entice you on tracks like “Rudy” and “Shine” or if you feel more like hearing some urban poetry from rapper Rubix, check out “Seven Grain”. Get hooked on the heavy- bassline dub medicine from Variable Unit on “Dr J. Dub” or enjoy some spacey, spooky guitar riffs from Tommy Guerrero on the cleverly titled track: “Eclectric Company”. Some tracks like “Boundary” and “Urban Shaman” can be a bit repetative, but that should not stop you from expanding your audible medulla with some of the selections from DJ Zeph and Calvin Keys. This vinyl playground will make your hips shake and your ears quake and really brings forward a little bit of San Francisco’s jazzed up interpretation of electronic music that maybe even yo mama could enjoy.
