Various Rekids One
- Words: Ross Holland
- Label: Rekids
- XLR8R Rating: 7.5/10
If you've spent any time in record shops over the last year, you're probably familiar with the Rekids label's bright-colored 12" sleeves. If you aren't, you should be. Run by DJ/producer Matt Edwards, Rekids has been slowly earning a name for itself with one impeccable 12" after another. Both their first compilation and first non-vinyl release, Rekids One showcases fantastic work by Toby Tobias, Luke Solomon, Spencer Parker, and Edwards himself as Radio Slave, not to mention a second disc of remixes from Quiet Village, Prins Thomas, and Claude VonStroke. From soulful Chicago house to wobbly, glitchy techno, Rekids' love for all things dark, dirty, and rumbling is utterly infectious, and pretty damn impressive too.
