West Norwood Cassette Library "Acid Jazz (Bonus Beats)"
The prolific and widely varied output of London producer Bob Bhamra (a.k.a. West Norwood Cassette Library, which also serves as the name of the man's forward-thinking imprint) will add another notch to his belt early next month with the 8 Track Cartridge EP. Seeing a release via Hypercolour, the double-12" effort gathers up eight tunes resurrected from the producer's vaults, including "Acid Jazz," the "Bonus Beats" version of which is offered here. Stripped of any melodic or overtly "musical" content, this version of the tune focuses on rhythms which churn with a steady four-on-the-floor and pop with some vintage-striped percussion—making this download a particularly useful tool for just about anyone's DJ arsenal.
