On 27th July, 2009, UNKLE’s James Lavelle released GU37 BANGKOK, his most radical and creative Global Underground mix to date. It’s a rainbow of sound, dazzling with colour. A spectrum of some of the most exciting sounds in electronic music today. GU37 BANGKOK dawns with a flourish of orchestral violins and goes on to deliver on all fronts: original, wide-ranging, cohesive, with shades of darkness and light, and tough, continuously funky grooves. Lavelle’s new mix album is smooth but with rough edges. There are tracks taken from the 50 or so already short-listed for the new UNKLE album – like ‘Heavy Drug’, as well as tracks and remixes from The Big Pink, Radiohead, School of Seven Bells, James Holden, Doves, Animal Collective, Dubfire, Fergie and more! There are certain mix albums that remain on top of the pile, and this is definitely one.
