• rennie pilgrem Live In the Cavern Club (CD, £1.95)

    label: functional

    2007 is a landmark year for the Functional / Beatz & Bobz family, as the West Country club night approaches its tenth anniversary. Starting life as a party in Exeter’s Cavern Club, the night has since grown into a breakbeat establishment showcasing local talent, and bringing big name DJs to the monthly shindig. To celebrate a decade in dance, the Beatz & Bobz crew have teamed up with sister label Functional to release the seventh instalment in their compilation series. Following mixes from the likes of Tayo, Atomic Hooligan and Dreadzone, they have drafted in another heavyweight of the scene, calling in Rennie Pilgrem to deliver an exclusive live mix combining the great and the good of what the breaks scene has to offer. Recorded live at his June 1st Cavern gig, Rennie expands on the formula he first utilised over four years ago for Perfecto, when he recorded the first ever Ableton Live mix album. Incorporating live keyboards, samples and MCing, Rennie uses the experience he has gained with his TCR Allstars Band (one of the ’20 Live Dance Acts You Must See’ according to DJ Mag) to deliver a CD, which perfectly captures the unique atmosphere of a Beatz & Bobz night. Opening with his own ’Nu Era’, Rennie takes listeners on a journey through the bass-driven dancefloor stomp of DJ Icey’s ’Gonzo Fuse’, taking in the reggae-tinged funk of ’Babylon Breaks’ by Ed Solo & Skool Of Thought, Uberzone’s future classic ‘Satisfaction’ and the old school electro sampling ’Hyperspeed’ by the Drumattic Twins’.
