Bedrock 12 Compiled by John Digweed
by Various Artists
Released: Oct 2010
Progressive-house icon John Digweed celebrates 12 years of his Bedrock label by proving, once and for all, that he's got far better things to do than rehash prog's stale breakdowns and snare rolls. A host of big-room-but-underground names like Alan Fitzpatrick, Christian Smith and Robert Babicz keeps the mood dark, percussive and propulsive. Evoking the most intense hours on the dancefloor, Bedrock 12 clocks in at an imaginary 4 A.M., and when the double-length album ends two hours later, the hour hand hasn't shifted from its peak-time spot.
