Chris Joss

Chris Joss – You’ve Been Spiked
Label: Cristal Records
Release Date: 2004
Genre: New Funk Disco?

Want disco? Don’t own a time machine? Chris Joss delivers some of the funkiest sounds I’ve heard in this new millennium. Potentially the new soundtrack for whatever is the next Austin Powers movie, or the theme music for ‘Under Cover Brother 2’. Overall a mediocre album due to the lack of variations, then again if you looooove da funk, you shall looove da Joss. 7/10


4Hero – The Remix Album
Label: Universal Korea
Release Date: May 3rd, 2004
Genre: Downtempo / Remixes

Watch closely.. 2 CD’s first one = 4 Hero remixes, second CD = mixes of 4 Hero. Ok, now you’re up to speed. Less funk than Chris Joss, and more classic cause it’s 4 Hero, but skippable cause it’s not really all that special (did I mention it’s $42 USD?). Stick with the original releases from 4 Hero. 4 / 10

Rae and Christian

Rae and Christian – Northern Sulphuric Soul
Label: Grand Central
Release Date: March 9, 2004
Genre: Downbeat

If you haven’t heard R&C before they are worth slowing down your music piracy for. Having produced several killer albums already, they continue to mash out original new tracks that mix hip hop, breakbeats, turntablism and even sometimes pop music. This album however is a remastered of their original 1998 release but also includes 3 previously unreleased tracks: Time to Shine, Premotion and Bacalau. This album is worth every penny, even if it was just for the new extra tracks. 9 / 10
