Get Lost VII follows editions from the likes of Dinky, Jamie Jones and Crosstown Rebels chief Damian Lazarus. As usual, Richards's selections are deep and understated, with records spanning four decades featuring on the mix. The first disc veers towards deep house, while the second heads into darker territory with vintage electro from The Hague-based labels Creme Organization and Viewlexx. The likes of STL, Joey Anderson, Steve Bug, Kenny Larkin, Redshape, Alexander Robotnick, Patrice Scott and JTC also appear on the mix, which also serves as a showcase of Richards' label, The Nothing Special, with tracks by Trevino, Calibre, dBridge, Keith Tenniswood, Billy Nasty and Richards himself included.
Given his long-admired skills as a selector and DJ, any new mix CD from Craig Richards is a cause for celebration. His contribution to the Get Lost series from Crosstown Rebels is no different with the CD edition containing a mammoth 37 tracks across the two discs. Whilst it was near impossible for the label to include all these tracks on this accompanying triple LP edition, Crosstown Rebels should be commended for including some of the highlights of Richards two diverse mixes. As such you get some classic early '90s NJ Garage from Black Rascals sharing space with the Mancunian tropics of Ruf Dug, vintage STL, Lowlands electro from Parallax Corporation, classic Kenny Larkin and more. Enjoy!
