LOW STOCK LEVEL
Seed Records Volume One
"Uniting all the best elements of electro, breaks, 2 step, melodic electronics and serious bass, this is real London circa Spring 2003. Seed Records, co-founded by Skam artists Posthuman, and DJ & writer Bruce Mcclure, has fully grown from a label for their own productions to an engrossing, encompassing family of sound system challengers. Tracks from glitchy 2-step breaksmaster Ardisson -- the beautiful violins of sometime Toytronic operator Digitonal -- the twisted breakbeat, robotic humour of Chicago's [snyzch] and the unique sound of Germany's On/Off, this is a varied, comprehensive overview of Seed's next 12 months worth of killer releases. Newcomers The Video Age drop some bugging cut up booty style business, and on this evidence their first release proper should be a corker. Jazzfinger and Cold Fusion Mafia brandish a subtle inflection to jazz and digital dub, then check the impersonal electro and breaking data of Kansas City Prophets and the spannered junglisms of Peachfish's `Pushkin', and if there was any doubt in your mind, check the deliberate build up to the massive beats of Posthuman's awesome `Moment of weakness'."
