Bedrock : Beautiful Strange EP

Digweed and Muir serve up a limp prog house confection...

Best pack a thermos and sleeping bag to get through this ridiculously overblown slice of prog house. Have John Digweed and Nick Muir never heard of Harthouse or the first wave of trance? Where's the soul, the funk or the emotion, the very basics of a good house/techno record?



But the worst crime 'Beautiful Strange' commits is that it's just plain boring, plodding along like some shuffling OAP. The four unnecessary mixes do little to save the track, confirming what a pointless waste of good plastic this record really is.
