Arriving back in the spring of 2010, the first edition of Halal Prepared from London label Boe Recordings featured Iron Curtis, KiNK and Ladzinski and has remained a 12" the more considered selectors at Juno HQ keep in their record boxes. Primed by Boe as the onset of a new V/A series, it's taken the label three years to decide on what artists to feature on this second volume, with a great online mix series of the same name available for those craving some Halal flavoured house. Smallville graduate Arnaldo calls shotgun here with the playfully named A side hogger "A Shop That Sells Everything But At Twice The Price" filled with the sort of texturally deepness that made his Blank Slate record from earlier this year such a popular 12". Label boss Ben Boe deems the time right to surface with his first original production and "Low Rider" fits snugly in with the refined house aesthetic the under-rated Boe Recordings has developed over the course of it's five years of releases. French producer Anaxander rounds out Vol 2. In fine style with the deep and dubby "Dance Et Cetera" showcasing his percussive chops. Bless up Boe!
