For the second volume of Another Late Night
, the series that invites left-field production gurus to share their favourite wind-down tunes with the world, Glaswegian DJ, producer and recording artist, Howie B
, has delivered a collection as strange as his own career. If the bulk of his nocturnal listening is anything to go by, Howard Bernstein- who has engineered for Bjork
, Dj 'ed for U2
and lent his own ambient sounds to a BUPA ad--is a soulboy at heart. Consequently downtempo funk (The Undisputed Truth, Quannum, Santana) and smooching disco (The Blackbyrds' "Walking In Rhythm", Love Unlimited Orchestra's "Love's Theme") are his key choices for soothing away the small hours. However, that he follows Curtis Mayfield's "Summer Hot" with Spacer's "Contrazon" (a furious pairing of Hitchcock strings and manic beats) and dogmatic hip hop from Mos Def & Talib Kwail, before rounding things off with the slow-grinding rock-fusion of Gong's "Heavy Tune", guarantees that this is more than an old soul rehash. Quite how well some inclusions fulfil the chillout premise is open to debate- nodding off is the last thing some of these are good for. One thing is for sure though; there are some phenomenal tracks in his curious mix. --Dan Gennoe
