A short mid-winter selection of cool cuts.

1.  various – Atlantiquity [Atlantic]
Killer collection of classic soul, jazz & funk cuts remixed by Quantic, Nu-Mark, and King Britt, among others.

2.  Beck – Bad Cartridge (E-Pro) [Interscope]
Space Invaders remix treatment of E-Pro. Trying to get caught up on my Beck classics.

3.  Amy Winehouse – You Know I’m No Good [Universal Republic]
Amazing blues-drenched single with an appearance by Ghostface and backed and the astounding Rehab; sounds like Nina Simone singing Motown.

4.  Bombs – Bombs EP #1 [Bombs]
Dope underground remixes (by Fort Knox Five) of hip-hop classics from Jurassic 5, Digital Underground and Dream Warriors.

5.  Bombs – Bombs #2 [Bombs]
Underground reggae/hip-hop blends from Fort Knox Five. The Specials’ Mesage to You Rudi gets the thumping remix treatment; perfect for the dancefloor.

6.  Fun Boy Three – The Lunatics… [Chrysalis]
From the experimental drums’n’voices first album. Moody genius with a head-nodding tribal jungle groove.
