A four track vinyl sampler of the new compilation series from Crosstown Rebels, allow us to introduce Spirits. Label Founder Damian Lazarus has compiled what he describes as "a fresh psychedelic journey into the mind", aiming to bring together a collection of new artists from both his imprints.
Opening up is Audiojack's "Reverie"; a heavy kick from the start is succeeded by spoken word on the subject of meditation sets the scene appropriately. Dubspeeka's "Lyssa" is next up with a sturdy bassline, eerie synths and a haunting melody reminiscent of yesteryear.
On the flip and Alice Rose seduces in "Another Way" produced by Raw District. Her voice, similar to that of Björk, perfectly encompasses the heavy bassline and hard-hitting percussion. Finally, "Be Mine" by SIOPIS featuring Ellbee Bad gets straight into the action with hard-hitting reverberated low notes, steadily building up through sentimental vocals and enticing synthesis.
