Various Artists- Zevolution: ZE Records Re-Edited

October 16, 2000

For the album, Strut also commissioned a fresh batch of versions, many transforming seminal ZE tracks which have previously been tricky to play in clubs. Richard Sen sews together brilliantly the two parts of James White’s fidgety ‘Almost Black, Italian DJ team The Barking Dogs create a tracky beast from Arto Lindsay’s beatless ZE experiment ‘Pini Pini and Luke Howard and Felix Dickinson from Horse Meat Disco create the best club version yet of Aural Exciters’ ‘Spooks In Space. For the ‘heads’, there are ultra-rare tracks too – Fat Camp resurrect a David Gamson track ‘No Turn On Red’, previously only available on an NME cover mount cassette. ZEVOLUTION features cover artwork based on the original ZE Records 12“ house bag design. Package contains an extensive booklet including an introduction by re-edit king Greg Wilson and sleeve notes by Bill Brewster of DJ History.
