Various Artists Rub ‘n‘ Tug Presents Campfire
- Words: Peter Nicholson
- Label: Eskimo
Note to self: in the search for art, never forget the craft. This compilation from the Rub ‘N‘ Tug team (DJs Thomas and Eric Duncan) has plenty of solid, unusual, downright freaky tracks, but the mix itself is painfully annoying. While the last thing the world needs is yet another seamlessly mixed CD, slamming "On The House‘s Pleasure Control" recklessly into Double Fantasy‘s "Heartbreaker" and then layering feedback over the track before randomly cutting the volume is just irritating. Songs like Daniel Wang‘s rollicking disco romp "Sylver Belt" and the classic acid of Adonis and Charles B‘s chugging "Lack of Love" simply deserve better.
