Various Artists Shapes Yellow
- Words: Steve Marchese
- Label: Tru Thoughts
Before the ascendancy of Brighton‘s Tru Thoughts label, few could have expected the seaside town south of London to unearth such a deep well of underground machine funk. On Shapes Yellow, the label‘s second global sampler, they link up with their sister hip-hop imprint Zebra Traffic and offer 13 pints of potent, forward thinking, and historically deferential downtempo. Exclusives from reliable mainstays Quantic Soul Orchestra and The Limp Twins steady an eclectic menu of certifiable two a.m. head-nodders courtesy of Dirty Diggers, Flevans, and veteran Welsh duo Headcase Ladz, unequivocally confirming a thirst-quenching funk contaminating Brighton‘s water supply.
