This is a bit gimmicky in concept, but entertaining in execution. Producer Shy Guy (needs a new name) takes James Bond themes from Dr No all the way through License to Kill in chronological order, and chops them into a beat tape. At its high points this project reminds me of old DJ Z-Trip remixes (specifically the Star Wars Imperial March turned into a break beat) – it has a similar tongue in cheek ‘we’re just fucking around here but it actually works beyond the novelty too’ quality to it. To be completely honest though… after listening to it my first impulse wasn’t to find more Shy Guy production, it was to watch Man With The Golden Gun.
The whole album is available for free preview and download via Shy Guy’s bandcamp page.
