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

5.0 out of 5 stars Drifting on the Electronic Highway May 7 2003

Format:Audio CD
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???

5.0 out of 5 stars Sonic Sonnets May 1 2003
Format:Audio CD
this album is, as opposed to epics that some mixes aspire to be. And what an exquisite collection of sonnets this is! A collection of discrete, queer instrumental "songs" that provoke curiosity and evoke a sense of mystery. Each track leads into the next without a break but it is clear that a different idea is being presented. But this tightly juxtaposed catenation of songs has an uncanny quality that is to be found neither in a mix nor in a traditonal format where each song is separated by a 5 second silence. This delightful music presented here --taken as a whole -- refuses to be named by a known genre, and for that reason it is all the more enticing in its whisper of things to come. Reminds me of those little dragons that Leonardo da Vinci used to make out lizards and animal parts (talons, wings, fangs, whiskers, etc) for the amusement of the King of France.
