BBE have been on form in recent months with some great releases. First up is Night Dubbin‘ - a fine collection of disco, boogie and proto house, compiled by Dimitri from Paris (and with one of the discs mixed by The Idjut Boys). The compilation focuses on dubbed-out (re)mixes from the likes of Francois Kevorkian, Larry Levan, Paul Simpson and Shep Pettibone. The Idjut Boys do a great job on the mix cd but the reason to own this compilation is the 21 unmixed songs - all of them complete gems. Given that the original 12″ versions of many of the tracks collected here are quite sought after, this compilation is essential for anyone that has even a passing interest in disco and the roots of house. Included in the liner notes are interviews with Francois Kevorkian, Paul Simpson and John Morales, who give the back-story and explain their techniques used in creating the dub mix.
