Some chilled out tracks coming from Russian producer Andrey Bychenkov, aka Buzz Compass, on the latest No More Hits record. My favorite is “Tonight,” an instrumental love affair that blends repetitive guitar chords and a relentless bass line with an ensemble of strings, horns, synthesizer and vocal snippets. It’s a perfect balance of repetition and variation to put you in a lethargic pool-side sort of trance.

Finding myself torn between desiring pure originality and honest to goodness classic tracks, I have decided that I am still leaning towards the classics. I wonder sometimes how long the fad of “they don’t make ’em like they used to” lasts and I am starting to believe it never ends or begins, it’s just a matter of when you jumped on the train. That being said, No More Hits is at the forefront of the classic sounds, from the 90’s “Prescription-esque” deep house of Nicholas to the late 80’s retrospect house of Simoncino and all the corners in-between. For this release they have Andrey Bychenkov, aka Buzz Compass, at the controls. The big tune on this one is definitely “Think About.” Andrey loops up Lyn Collins’ iconic piece “Think About It” for the instrumentals and uses Loleatta Holloway’s acapella from “Crash Goes Love.” This is such a genius blend, it takes Loleatta’s vocals completely out of it’s original 80’s electro context and puts it over raw funk. Sounds like her vocals where meant for this tune and not the original.

Blood Orange hits the spot with this Urban Balearic number, its great decompression music after a long day, week or what have you. Get your hands on this slightly uptempo edit from Buzz Compass, an up and coming master of the craft from St. Petersburg, Russia. He takes a song that is more or less mood music and gives the beat just enough edge that it could work to wind down the night as a set closer.

I always smile when I see a release from No More Hits in the flood of e-mail notifications in my in-box. The label proprietor has a soft spot for those blissful nostalgic tunes and the artist on the twelfth installment starts things off on that exact note.

.

.

A1 is an edit of Patrice Rushen’s “Forget Me Nots,” a solid straight forward cut with some added FX.
“Forget Me Nuts” [not a typo!]

.

A2 gets interesting with “in the thick of it” style editing. This one builds around a sweet head jerking loop and keeps the energy moving with only quick reverse effects and EQ drops as breaks in the track.
“Carland”

.

B1 stands out by far, this one makes the 12″ worth it. This one feels like the electronic arrangements are twirling around you. Further into the track a one of a kind playful synth is introduced and it bubbles along side nicely with the tracks funky bass line.
“The Sun”

.

B2 is along the lines of the jazzy numbers Buzz Compass is known for. This one goes downtempo and really shines, perfect lounge music.
“Honesty”
