Various - Shapes 09:01
(2xCD/Double vinyl with Double CD) Tru Thoughts TRUCD194/TRULP194, 2009-06-08

Tru Thoughts' first Shapes compilation of 2009 is a rather massive 29 track double CD collection, featuring a selection of current highlights, remixes and exclusive tracks from acts including Quantic and his Combo Bárbaro, Bonobo, Belleruche, The Bamboos, Nostalgia 77 Sessions featuring Keith and Julie Tippett, Kinny, Stonephace and all the excellent artists currently signed to the roster, of which there are far too many to mention in one coherent sentence. Suffice to say, over the two discs - arranged into 'home listening' and 'DJ' modes - there is plenty of great music for your ears and dancefloors, from minimal soul through downtempo beats and lush jazzy vocal tracks to floor-filling basslines.

There's also a killer Examples of Twelves remix of Lizzy Parks, as well as appearances from Part Time Heroes, Unforscene, Freddie Cruger aka Red Astaire, Mr Beatnick and that master of the catchy hook, Flevans, who has recently re-signed to Tru Thoughts and will be releasing his third album in May.

To reflect the sheer wealth of DJ weapons that Robert Luis (Tru Thoughts A&R) has managed to amass for this compilation, there will also be a limited pressing of 500 numbered 7 track vinyl featuring some of the biggest cuts and boasting the full double CD inside as well
