Fila Brazillia have made quite a name for themselves with their inimitable blend of pronounced percussion, sweeping analogue and inspired slick production. Over the years, the prolific partnership has built a massive CV, with six albums to their credit and a whole lot more remixes than you would reasonably be expected to count. And you don't have to any more, because they are all here, on 18-track double-CD compilation Brazilification. From the liberating beats of DJ Food's Freedom to Robin Jones' blistering Latin floor-filler Royal Rumba and superb previously unreleased mixes of Radiohead's Climbing The Walls, UNKLE's Berry Meditation and Moloko's Lotus Eaters, this is a value-for-money inventory of one of the consistently interesting remix teams going. A big thumbs-up.
