Those with a passion for '80s electrofunk, boogie, synth jams, machine soul and proto-house should already be aware of Inskwel and Benny Badge's Hot Shot label. The imprint specializes in delivering fresh music inspired by those sounds. Here, the Australian duo gathers together a superb selection of contemporary revivalist sounds from like-minded souls. Highlights are naturally plentiful, from the rubbery bass and vintage synths of First Touch's "Sure Feels Good To Me" and Jupiter Gang's bodypoppin' electro workout "America", to the deep proto-house of Paradise Box's "Slave 2 Knowledge" and Inkswel's acid-tinged midtempo deep house rework of High Accord's "You Are (My Number One Priority)". Stellar stuff, all told.
