Various Artists 5 Years Get Physical
- Words: Ross Holland
- Label: Get Physical
After five years of releasing venerable club anthems, Berlin-based Get Physical is finally giving itself a much-deserved pat on the back with this rarities and remixes comp. While the exclusive new material showcases GP's trademark blend of Chicago house and Berlin techno, it's the remix talent (Hot Chip, Padded Cell, Herbert) featured on Disc One that will really excite label devotees. The most intriguing action is straight out of leftfield: Señor Coconut reworks M.A.N.D.Y. vs. Booka Shade's "Body Language" into a vibraphone-laden, samba-house monster, while Larry Gold reveals the cinematic melancholy beneath the tech-funk of Booka Shade's "Night Falls" with a string-quartet cover. 5 Years is another fine release from an incredibly consistent label.
