Elite Beat LP

Selected Rhythms Vol. 2 picks up where last year’s Elite Beat compilation on Research Records left off. The Australian label has once again dug deep into the Portland bands series of cassettes called Casual Rhythms and present eight lush tracks of instrumental jazzy dub. All of them build on repetitive grooves, overlaid with synthesizers, saxophone or trumpet. Even the odd bit of surf guitar. Elite Beat have apparently said “while many musicians can get totally bored playing the same thing over and over, we love it!” and that’s exactly the feeling you get from this record. A band doing what they love to do.
