The Philpot label's 50th release is dedicated to all of their artists, friends and supporters who have helped them to gain their reputation as a proper freestyle label over the years. This double vinyl-only compilation features Philpot artists, present and future, and covers every musical aspect that has encapsulated the label. Tim Toh and IKE had impressive debut releases on Philpot, so they share the A-side. Starting with "Floral," Tim sets the tone for the whole side. Raw, ruff piano riffs counterpoint a banging rhythm while the background shimmers. IKE strips it down to the basics with a dirty little piece of old school house music aptly titled "Throwbackmusic '94." On the B-side, Philpot's future artists Roman Rauch and Tom Ellis both funk up the whole thing. Roman starts with "Lemme Get There," a tune full of discoid-acid, a great chorus and an even bigger bass line. Tom Ellis increases the funk level even further. Breaks, guitar licks and a fat bass, plus some great vocals on top. The C-Side hosts the expressive pairing of The Reboot Joy Confession and Juju & Jordash. RJC's "O" is a claustrophobic storm of electric jazz, saw-toothed bass and a fucking message! Juju & Jordash charge into deep space with "Tanglefoot" -- strong textures fly into oblivion just barely held in check by a stubborn piano and a very vital bass line -- future classic! The D-side belongs to Move D alone for his blueprint of deepest electro called "Untitled Detroit." The classic instrumentation and the flawless arrangement makes for a very strong charmer.
