Various Artists ESL Remixed: The 100th Release Of ESL Music
- Words: Stacy Meyn
- Label: ESL
During DC's steamy 1995 summer, Eric Hilton and Rob Garza (a.k.a. Thievery Corporation) took the bumpin' Eighteenth Street Lounge and went label. An adoration of bossa nova, acid jazz, and breakbeat bred a roster that would include Nicola Conte, Ursula 1000, Thunderball, Federico Aubele, Sofa Surfers, Chris Joss, and Blue States. ESL's 100th release grooves with powerhouse guest remixers spicing up the imprint's heavy hitters. Nickodemus (who just joined ESL), Boca 45, Beatfanatic, Bombay Dub Orchestra, and Medeski Martin & Wood (among others) do the redux with heapin' helpings of bass, breaks, and funkification, and a lovely glaze of deep house.
