Various Sincerely Yours, Klein Records

Klein Records serves up a diverse collection of Austrian funk, pop, down-tempo and trip-hop with Sincerely Yours, Klein Records. The tracks go all over the place, from the TLC-styled pop of UKO's "Automatic" to the noisy beats of Humbucker's "Thrill Jockey," but in-between is the electronic jazz of Lichtenberg's Duke Ellington medley "El Duke" and the fat trip-hop beats of Markus Kienzl's "Top Dog." However, the real theme to the compilation is trip-hop and fat beats. Most of the tracks are either previously unreleased or a newly reworked version, making Sincerely Yours, Klein Records a good compilation of down-tempo beats. (Klein)
