Various - Cheap Thrills Volume 2

This round up of tunes released on the Cheap Thrills label consists of one unmixed disc and another mixed by label founder Hervé. Although various dance sub-genres (from house to dubstep) are touched on, bouncy basslines and a frequent goofiness tie the whole thing together. Granted it’s at the extreme end of the spectrum, but Fake Blood’s 'I Think I Like It', inescapable during summer 2010, is illustrative of the marmite nature of a number of the inclusions; it's an earworm of the incredibly stupid variety, surely created to annoy the hell out of anyone who might take dance music at all seriously. Still, there a smattering of straighter, more generally palatable tracks: Lone’s 'Pineapple Crush (Manchester Warehouse VIP)', which throws every rave cliché at the wall to immensely enjoyable effect, is itself nearly enough reason to recommend the release.
