Erol Alkan: Another "Bugged Out" Mix
by Various Artists
Released: Sep 2012
Label: !K7 Records
London's Erol Alkan returns with a follow-up to his 2005 double-disc mix, once again bridging the club and the living room. Kicking off with Smith N Hack's bluesy, boozy stomp, "Bugged Out" quickly beefs up into a full-bore tour de force of the peak time, balancing vintage acid house with industrial-tinged techno. It's full of unexpected gems; even more so the "Bugged In" mix, weaving breezy, Balearic songs from Jan Hammer, Buffalo Springfield and Robert Wyatt together with lilting, lazy-afternoon electronica from Bibio and Space Dimension Controller.
