The Essential Muzik Weekly Chart 29/11/02
1) Justin Timberlake
Like I Love You (Remixes) (Jive Import)
Controversial? Nah. Deep Dish and Basement Jaxx remix Justin’s latest into a big room acid drama. Check the dubs!
2) DJ Sneak
Fix My Sink (Magnetic)
Yousef’s been smashing this for months and Basement Jaxx have just turned in a new set of acidic re-rubs
3) Underground Resistance
Both sides of this new(ish) UR single are essential, Soma-ish stormers.
4) Foremost Poets
Open Season (Junior)
Johnny Dangerous lives up to his name. Poetic and twisted gear.
03 Bonnie And Clyde (Def Jam)
Beyonce Knowles guests on this glorious, guitar-flecked crossover hit that’s more Palm Springs than a ton of beach
6) X-Press 2
Supasong (Soul Mechanik Mixes) (Skint)
More wayward re-rubs for the Crash massive – excellent.
7) Ralph Myerz
Think Twice (Emperor Norton)
Another excellent, left-of-centre slate from Mr Myerz. Already a favourite with Chris Coco and the Sunday Best chaps.
Still stomping all over the darker nitespots in town. . .
Picked up from the ‘Brasil.com’ compilation. Freeform Five and Tiefschwarz both provide sterling remixes – but the original remains the headz’ favourite.
10) Audio Bullys
We Don’t Care (Source)
Except we do, of course!
11) Jason Jinx
When You Know You’re There (Subliminal)
Subliminal’s best release since ‘Corruption’, we reckon.
12) Dirty Funker
Future (Spirit Productions)
This prog-electro take on NORE’s ‘Nothin’’ is still slamming.
13) Gus Gus
David (Remixes) (Underwater)
King Britt and Medecine8 both move in for the kill – ace. "I still have last night in my body. . ."
Freak (Remixes) (Ovum)
Back once again with the ill behaviour. Mr G and Blakkat do the business.
15) Adam F Featuring Guru & Carl Thomas
Karma (The Remixes) (Kaos)
High Contrast and John B speed things up nicely on the ‘deep’ track from Adam’s superb ‘Kaos’ hip hop album.
