We've been massive fans of this label for a while now so we're very pleased to see the arrival of this double CD collecting all their releases to date. Skull Disco's reputation as an innovative and boundary-pushing record label that seems to be ever growing, whilst Shackleton and Appleblim's reputation as two mavericks single-mindedly carving out their own sounds and being far more interesting as a result, is already well-formed by those in the know. As both producers seem to be on the verge of breaking through to some kind of bigger recognition, now seems to be the ideal time for this document of their first releases. <p> From the tender, melancholy chords of Shackleton's beautiful 'Blood On My Hands' to Appleblim's brutal darkside riffer 'Fear', this is music that defies easy categorization. Appleblim and Shackleton's styles not only contrast well with each other, their diverse productions stand out from dubstep as a whole as the pair are constantly looking to reach that next level of invention. <p> So here we have it, on the first disc you get the first five Skull Disco releases, each standing out from its peers with idiosyncratic nature and refusal to follow the crowd. CD two collects the more eclectic side of their sound by drawing together their unreleased and non-Skull material, including the eagerly anticipated Ricardo Villalobos remix of Shackleton's 'Blood On My Hands', the Mordant Music and Hot Flush releases, and a couple of unreleased beasts from each producer. This is as comprehensive as it gets and a brilliant overview of this great label so far.
