It's that time again; the bears come out of their winter Hibernation and take stock of the idyllic beauty that is all around them. Upon opening their weary sleep filled eyes, the sound of a new season floats through the air like Dove gliding through morning sun.
So what is this sound? Well at Bearfunk we firmly believe in working our artists and producers as hard as possible, so all through the winter they have very busy bee's honing in on that special Bearfunk sound we know and love.
We welcome Downtown Party Network and Laser Tom & The Blast Crew as newest members of the Bearfunk cult. They both deliver outstanding tracks with DPN's "Get a Life" opening the compilation. Laser Tom & The Blast Crew hail from the Emerald Isle and are currently fine tuning a LP for Bearfunk, They lay down a potent marker with "Two Sides" a smoked out dub disco jam that is sure to make your bottom move.
Elsewhere we have regular contributors Max Essa, Ilija Rudman and Visti & Meyland doing what they do best. Be sure to check out Essa's remix of Kotey Extra Band "I'm Dancin" Which is exclusive to this compilation. Pete Visti pops up with "Lost in space" a new single from his forthcoming solo LP. Claremont 56 head honcho Mudd is a purveyor of some of the Bear's earliest releases. Whilst Stevie was cleaning up the master's box he noticed that Mudd's "Ossian's Cave" release had some unreleased mixes which sounded amazing.
Tobor Experiment Disco Experience gives us another peek into his forthcoming LP with "Guitar Voodoo" an exotic piece of contemporary disco. Blakula's LP was one of the best sellers and a highlight for many last year. Miss Morgue a track from that album gets the Kotey extension with his Neck bite edit. Those crazy Italians Mushrooms Project made "Phalcon Crest" many moons ago we love the style of this duo, they have the energy and passion of a Ferrari but there music has subtleness and craft of a Jaguar its easy going music at its best.
So there we have it Hibernation II
