Various Artists – Masterbeats Vol 2 (Vinyl LP)

ImageSome more old skool dance stuff with this compilation on the German BCM Records label from 1988. Some mainstream stuff with Bomb The Bass and B.V.S.M.P and some more obscurer, early house and hip hop. “Private Party” uses the Severed Heads bassline of “Greater Reward” (or visa versa) Power’s Gang sounds like Gabriel’s “Sledgehammer” mixed with SAW’s “Roadblock” and L’Trimm’s “Push it…” is a deadringer for Salt N Peppa’s version. Code 61 crossover classic “Drop The Deal” is here (via a couple of jumps!)
