Description

As any recording geek knows, zero dB is the optimum level for recording. Yet the London duo Zero dB place no limit on their productions other than to flap ears, trigger nods, and shake tail feathers wherever and whenever they’re heard. Rewind to September 2006, when Bongos, Bleeps & Basslines hit the streets sprinting, hurdling genres, and kicking its analog spikes into the bland face of all who stood in its path. This debut artist album, “Ninja Tune’s best release ever” according to Trevor Jackson, propelled dirty jazz and bassmeisters Zero dB overground long enough to tour their bangers and mash it up at parties around the world, before they burrowed back underground. From here, dB Chris Vogado (of Fluid Ounce Records, the label that launched these boys back in 1999 with “Come Party”) masterminded the remix album, Heavyweight Gringos. Vogado approached 27 members of the Fluid Ounce Friends & Familia crew plus Ninja Tune and Big Dada stablemates and laid the whole Bongos, Bleeps & Basslines album at their disposal. The remixers plundered the dB drives and picked their perfect partners for the dance. This release includes remixes from: Dibaba (Fluid Ounce/F-Com), Dave da Gato (Fluid Ounce/Far Out), Tony Nwachukwu (Attica Blues then, CD-R founder now), Daedelus (Ninja Tune), Raymond in Space (Fluid Ounce), Xrabit (latest Big Dada signing, album in 2008), AFTC (top 10 Midas-touch boy for Fat Boy Slim, Adeva, etc.), Goetz (remixer of Coldcut and many more), Yppah (Ninja Tune), Toshio Matsuura (from Japan’s UFO) and Raphael Sebbag (also a fellow UFO-er).
