2023, 2×12″ compilation LP, Re:Warm.

After being forgotten for a few years, a whole new generation of listeners has started digging into the vast back catalogue of Hull duo Fila Brazillia – a prolific outfit whose output of the 90s and noughties encompassed dreamy deep house, breakbeat-driven loved-up workouts, stoner funk and dusty downtempo gems. This fresh career-encompassing ‘best of’ showcases a mixture of stone-cold classics (early house single ‘The Sheriff’, confirmed chill-out classics ‘Harmonicas Are Shite’ and ‘A Zed and Two Ls’), fan favourites (the decidedly Balearic ‘Airlock Holmes’, the undeniably funky ‘Madame Le Fevre’ and ‘Throwing Down a Shape’) and slept-on treats (‘Bublehaun’ and ‘Little Dipper’). There’s even a couple of relatively recent recordings (‘Hush Hush’ and the fresh ‘Toro De Fuego’, both of which return to the sounds explored in some of their earliest releases). In other words, it’s a must-have celebration of Fila Brazilllia’s often-unheralded genius. – Juno
