Zero 7: Anotherlatenight You can’t turn around these days without another Zero 7 project hitting you in the face. Whether it’s their highly acclaimed/fawned over album Simple Things or the numerous remixes they’ve been commissioned to work on floating about on compilations here and there. Whether you buy into the hubbub or not, their mix for the popular Anotherlatenight series shows that they’ve got damn good taste. This mix suspends you in a haze of soulful and jazz influenced chillout tracks. Opening with two tracks from the mind-bendingly talented Madlib, under the guises of Yesterday’s New Quintet and Quasimoto respectively, the tone is set for some dusty jazz vibes, and a hip-hop mood. The tone is almost haunting at times, when tracks like Roots Manuva’s dubbed out “Witness” or Cinematic Orchestra’s “Channel 1 Suite” are dropped in the mix. De Lata’s “Pra Manha” and Shawn Lee’s “Happiness” introduce some more tropical rhythms and a Balearic mood. For good measure, they close out the disc displaying a discerning taste for some classics like Leroy Huston’s “Cool Out” and the Stylistics’ “People Make The world Go Round.” They even take a stab at remaking Johnny Osbourne’s “Truth & Rights” showing their own accomplished musical chops. This installment of Anotherlatenight is the best one yet. It just makes you want to stay up past your bedtime.
