yho45 - corrosion

The forty-fifth edition of YHO is all about the Basic Channel organisation and its output.  Ten compact discs (a little perversely) have been selected from its catalogue and considered carefully.  This sound survey takes in releases on the Basic Channel, Chain Reaction, Burial Mix and Wackies labels.  In addition to the actual Basic Channel/Rhythm & Sound production partnership this overview also features titles by Vainqueur, Various Artists, Hallucinator, Vladislav Delay and Love Joys.  The strikingly beautiful covers were designed by Per-Christian Hille.
