The weekend starts here under the seachlight with a host of dancefloor wizards.

If you're keeping up with Fallen Tree 1Hundred, they really champion post-d'n'b modern soul UKG and Searchlight (aka Zero T and Beta 2) have picked three top producers/remixes to re-work tracks from their debut album.

Must say, the agility of the Atjazz remix on 'Can We Go Back' with nu-jazz bruk shuffle is more than stunning and worthy of any DJ set.

Talking BRUK, Afroforce (aka Mark Force and Orin Afronaut - did you see what they did there), re-live BITA on a deep 'Breath'

The opener 'We Could Be More' featuring [ K S R ] (soul singer from Manchester not a YouTuber) get another BRUK student, Lee Gomez (aka Wipe The Needle) that sounds even more BITA than the Bugz themselves: especially on the instrumental which sounds so good.

This definitely could be more, say if they all team up with label mates Natalie Duncan (see review HERE) or Degrees Of Freedom (see review HERE) for what would be one hell of a Gilles Peterson 'Worldwide' re-union.
