Sound Pellegrino Presents SND.PE, Vol. 2: Crossover Series
by Various Artists
Collaborations are the order of the day on the second compilation from Sound Pellegrino. Hybrid club-music sounds, already a hallmark of the Parisian label, turn even more complex, as Eero Johannes and Teki Latex fuse G-funk and skweee, and Matthias Zimmermann and SCNTST outfit lush Detroit techno with rough-hewn breakbeats. Grime turns cosmic in the hands of Helix and Hrdvision, and it smashes like glass beneath L-Vis 1990 and Sinjin Hawke's hammering beats; the rest cavorts through techno, acid and ghetto house, treating the dancefloor as a labyrinth.
