Various Artists - Broadcite presents Unplugged Volume 2:<br>Internal ReflectionBroadcite
Reflecting the Broadcite label's own worthy output, this collection serves up the full spectrum of modern electronic soul, from the feel-good Hip-Hop of top female lyricist Voice (as heard on the recent Visioneers album), to Broken Beat gems from the likes of Brown (a CDR discovered talent) and Method Unique. A couple of Future Jazz fillers, which don't quite seem to develop fully, do detract from the CD's overall quality, but this is bolstered by some monstrous Deep House from Yoruba maestro Osunlade - his awesome Gwotet remix and NYC's Quentin Harris. With several of the tracks being CD exclusives, and a welcome showing from Ashley Beedle's much-loved Black Science Orchestra guise, this compilation certainly deserves a listen.
