Various Artists Electronic Music For Heroes Volume Three
- Words: Brock Phillips
- Label: Hydrogen Dukebox
Compilations are always a tricky affair-most encourage liberal use of the fast-forward button. This particular volume from Southeast London's Hydrogen Dukebox imprint starts out strong; the Swaymay remix of Norken's "Motorbreeze" is by far the best outing on this entire disc, a low-slung funk growler with a vocodered riff. Things go awry on the next track though, as A1 People strike a pouty electroclash pose with "The Reason." Luckily, Plumbline swoops in to save the day with the beatific strings and serene vocals of "212 E10." The verdict? For every hero, there's a zero to match.
