"Sonic Underground" compiles remixes by the CCC family of up-and-coming indie artists – four floor-ready, mutant hybrids of rock, pop, disco and deep house. Belgian firebrand Mugwump's rework of CCC's own Acid Snow transforms the acid/no-wave original into a disco-house monster that's earned accolades from the likes of Ewan Pearson and Magda. Ivan Smagghe calls the remix "a no-nonsense record. While some look for experimental arty-ness, some for the big hit, all of this pretending to be 'underground', Mugwump pull out of their sleeves what is properly hard to achieve, a cool big track."
In a similar way, the rest of "Sonic Underground" explores new combinations of arty edginess and mass appeal. Mack Winston & The Reflections see their swaggering glam-rock transformed by CCC into a deep back-room sex jam that's getting support from the Wolf + Lamb crew and is featured on Soul Clap's compilation CD for Mixmag in February. The flipside highlights remixes by CCC's own Night Plane: with its atmospheric guitar and emo vocals, his take on Presssures sounds like if The Cure ever showed up on Crosstown Rebels, and his re-design of fellow New Yorker Baby Alpaca is a dreamy k-hole lullaby, with blissed-out melodies that make it an after-hours snuggle classic.
