Web Web is a collective of German jazz musicians, often referred to as a German jazz super group (Süddeutsche Zeitung). To date they have released three albums over a three year period, since 2018, while the fourth is already recorded and in the pipeline for a winter 2020/21 release. Following a number of hip hop producers requests to sample Web Web's material, the band decided to ask a number of beatmakers to deliver their own interpretations of Web Web tracks...

Over the course of 32 tracks (1 hr, 21 sec, 48 sec) a number of beatmasters pay homage to the work of Web Web, a band who have been regularly sampled in recent years. The tracks vary in length from just 48 secs to 4 min, 39 sec. Some really just use the original as inspiration and a jumping off point, whilst others bare little resemblance to the original but either way dance fans will enjoy the varied beats and set pieces laid down here.

Rather than a dance album for individuals to listen to at home, I'd argue the case that this is ideal for DJs to mix in as a quick transition from one track to another.

It's really interesting to hear what different artists focus on and how they incorporate the original material. This is the perfect album for budding DJs to hear how other, more establish, acts weave their craft.
