CHEMICAL BROTHERS Brothers Gonna Work it OutA very interesting document from the guys who go to more record stores in a year, than most go in a lifetime. All kinds of rarities are served up on rve distinctive mixes from Tom and Ed, see a web site called The Raft, for a good interview and explanation of each track. In 75 minutes you can get a taste of the twists and turns a night with the old Dust Brothers might take. Mix 1 is a shout to soul and early house, number two fuses those house and break beats, before they break out with the Micronauts 'The Jazz'.

That track is where they usually take the breaks out and slip in the acid house. The 4th mix takes a slightly industrial turn, but is anchored with Renegade Soundwave's standard 'Thunder', and the last mix is a hodgepodge of favorites resolving in the enchanting Chem Bros remix of Spiritualized's 'I Think I'm in Love'. It's a great way to catch up with the acid house outbreak of 88-89, and the rebirth of the breakbeat in 1994, the brothers continue to find solutions.
