Heat Wave – “20 Years” – [Cauldron]
A sort of compilation for those who like to mix it up. Supposedly a few tracks on each side, but each side plays as one continuous mix. Side A starts with what could be the beginning of a Stereolab song, then brings you some ’60s psychedelia, a lava lamp here, a peace sign there, then jumps into a quick summer dub sample. Side B has an interview quicky, before diving into some electronic bubbly dub that soon melds into a chill lounge style beat – cocktail hour. The last half of the track has a steel drum 80s dance flair, complete with low-man vox.
