Brazil’s Luvdisaster imprint is one of the country’s longest-running exponents of bass music, with releases covering drum and bass, dubstep, grime and trap. Here, they take a different approach, asking a bulging collection of D&B artists to offer-up tracks in non D&B styles that have influenced them over the years. It’s a decent idea, and the results are by and large excellent. Highlights include a Roots Manuva-ish hip-hop excursion from Undersound & Intermet (“The Weather”), an immersive deep trip-hop salvo from Duoscience (“Your Eyes In My Memory”) and a thrilling blast of samba-jazz from Oliver Ferrer and Michel Palazzo (“Thanks George”). There’s also a thrilling piano lament from Undersound (“Thinking of You”), which recalls some of the terrific downtempo work of deep house producer Aqua Bassino.
