"Versatile Records assembles four of the most notorious gunslingers and sharpshooters for a showdown high-midnight style and as everyone has just one shot to fire, Maurice Fulton, I:Cube, Chateau Flight and Future Beat Alliance all pack some special, exclusive bullets. The genius of eccentric modern disco music Maurice Fulton remixes 'Superflight' to another perfect boogie-style mix of electronic and organic ingredients: a shimmering tableau of percussive vibraphone licks, hints of woodwinds, swirls of acoustic guitar, artistic slapbass, pixie-like vox, all kept together by a tight live-drum beat. I:Cube's edit of 'Taurus' is similar to his recent, fantastic cut on Marketing records, as it slowly builds with exotic, grinding melody fragments and African beats before a heavy steppers-style roots-bassline transforms the groove and sets the start for a hectic dub workout. 'Ongaku' gets revisited by Chateau Flight themselves in the form of the 'Unreleased Electro Dub': mid-paced old-school beats set the basis for the strange Japanese spoken words, a Kraftwerk-style melody and drops of '80s synth fx. champion of deep Detroit style techno Matthew Puffet aka Future Beat Alliance surprises with stomping live-sounding boogie beat and a rather dark, tense atmosphere contrasted with a delicate, alluring yet kinda surreal melody. Four hot shots indeed, everybody aimed accurately, but word is nobody got harmed."
