Product Description

Product Description

On Night Works, London-based breaks innovators Layo and Bushwacka! refine their mutant dancefloor rush into a true artform. Their firm debut, 1999's Lowlife, marked them out as a duo eager to be all things to all ravers, hurling everything from phat basslines to curiously subtle orchestral instrumentation into the mix. But this long-awaited follow-up is something else altogether. Where Lowlife was big, Nightworks is massive. Where Lowlife was curiously subtle, Nightworks is sublime. Thanks to Bushwacka!'s sparkling production, this broiling cauldron of techno, rave, breakbeat, and jungle solidifies into one coherent vision. But it's the impressive tunecraft of Layo that makes really makes tracks like the seratonin-drenched "Love Story" and the thumping house rush of "Strike". Naturally, it's not all capital-letter TUNES: there's a more intricate, noodly edge to the downtempo likes of "Sahara" that should keep the chill-out enthusiasts happy. Reflecting its creators' diverse background in everything from the underground club and pirate radio scene, to classical music and new-skool bootlegging, this is a 21st century electronic milestone that'll sound as good screaming out of a speaker in an underground London club as it will streaming from of your headphones. --Louis Pattison

The reason i dont go to clubs that play "house" is because most of it is unintelligent and monotonous uninspired music. Plus, exactly because it is easy to make everyone does it. You know what Clint Eastwood has said about a certain part of our body and how everyone "has one". Well, same goes for house records, everyone makes one.
But then comes along "Layo & Bushwacka" to throw my theories to the trashbin. This is an intelligent album! Most of what "happens" in it, from the beats to the riffs to the strings has a subtlety about it. And that is exactly what makes "Night works" stand out from the rest.
I dont claim to be an expert on house, nor would i want to be, but i think it would be fair to say that to label this merely "house" would be an injustice to the music offered here.
"Night works" is a beautiful, at times imposing and intimidating, work of music. Its atmosphere keeps expanding on you as you listen to it, the music functions like water, it occupies the space it is played in.
There many ideas finding their place in the LP, all as i said happening in a "not-in-your-face way".
As far as "dance" or "club albums" are concerned this is easily the most interesting release i have heard so far this year.
I read somewhere that Layo and Bushwacka are veterans of the "house scene". If so, this shows in a very convincing way.

Layo & Bushwacka, first heard of by name only, till I got the chance to online listen to a live-set. Superb... These two guys are innovative in a sense rarely found. Most of the time, producers keep milking the same cow. None of that here. NightWorks keeps surprising, being accessible but also deep and stimulating to undergo.
This disc brings summer from the speakers, offers fun and warmth, uptempo and relaxing. L&B use groovy, indeep basslines with light drum+bass, congas and a high flying melody.
In order to get a good picture of the album, listen to "Let the good times roll". Okay, it's the best, but the rest is though diverse, the same level.. Fantastic..
I scale L&B in the same order as Sasha, for both go beyond constructed boundaries. If you like Sasha, LTJ Bukem, Thievery Corporation, Morcheeba, David Holmes or Orbital: get this one..
It's a keeper you won't regret, nor bore. Let the good times roll!!

... "Night Works" in a word is undescribable! It takes you one way and suddenly veers you another, from chillout to organic to funk to jazz to blues to techno to scatting to scratching to mixing to sampling, this CD has it all--even the segues are cool...and boy, do I regret not buying this disc sooner!! Somebody, please slap me!! The songs flow and are well produced and arranged...I never hit the skip button once because "Night Works" left me craving more and more and more!! This CD is full of surprises and each time you hear it, you'll hear something different! Layo and Bushwacka are truly underrated artists in the field of music, and have definitely established their own unique sound. I place them up there with other great dynamic duos such as Kruder and Dorfmeister, Dzhian and Kamien and 45 Dip! A definite must-have!! But somebody answer me this? Why are the Best CDs always so dawg-gone short???
