Various Be Arisionable
- Words: Dave Stenton
- Label: Arison
Be Arisionable charts the evolution of Arision, the label established by Italy's Simone Serritella (one half of Ubiquity act Cuica), a highly regarded jazz/broken beat producer. In keeping with London's leading broken beat club night, Co-op, it's dominated by exclusives (seven out of ten tracks are previously unreleased). The contributions from the most celebrated names involved here are well deserving of the plaudits: both Domu and 4hero's Marc Mac opt for forward-thinking, yet floor-friendly songs. The former favors a killer, bass-heavy staccato groove, whilst the latter demonstrates that house music's still a potent force in the right hands. Fittingly, Serritella himself detonates the biggest downtempo bomb, "Reminissin," a deceptively simple track that, although half-paced, deserves full marks.
