After ï¿½Take 1ï¿½ comes ï¿½Take 2ï¿½, it sometimes really is that simpleï¿½ Together with the ï¿½Pre-Takeï¿½ that came out before the summer this third volume in WPHï¿½s ï¿½Our Beat Is Still Newï¿½ project completes the 12 tracks that form the album.More members of the core WPH family are on board here, but we also welcome some newcomers to the label.
The A-side opens up with what we have always considered to be the Dresden counterpart to WPH, the Uncanny Valley family of Jacob Korn, Credit 00 and Sneaker. With ï¿½Drum Abuseï¿½ the provide the roughest track of the compilation, and one that will have techno DJï¿½s play new beat againï¿½ The second track on the A-side comes courtesy of Jacques Renault & Mark Verbos aka Goodnight Moon, giving a serious New York rendition of new beat.
On the B-side we have Social Disco Club and Outlander, both no strangers to WPH, and both very much on point again here. Social Disco Club marries his trademark deep house sound with a new beat feel, and Outlander was pretty much there when new beat started, so he provides us with vintage machine slowness straight from new beat heaven.
