V. A. (Los- Jubilee) - Shefa Shefa (Wealth)

2010; 5 tracks

Los- Jubilee is a new Tel Aviv-based label, their name coming from a neighborhood in west Jerusalem and run by electronic artist Harel Schreiber (Mule Driver, Mujahideen and The Models). The music they release focuses on "raw electronic music, ranging from acid house to deep, unfunctional electronic sounds, while preserving both the liveliness and roughness of life."

Shefa Shefa (Wealth) is a field recording of two taxi drivers having a passionate discussion analyzing the behavior of local economic trends, social movements and the secrets of love. Mule Driver's opening track is a ghetto house version, using a repetitive sample of the dialogue which translate into "here we have plenty, plenty" (plenty also meaning "wealth"). Yair Etziony (False ind, Neo Ouija, Spekk) combines almost the entire recording on top of a dark ambient techno background. Rei Elbaz, DJ and a veteran producer, contributes an aggressive acid techno version. The compilation closes with "One Plus One," the first track by The Models in three years. The final track on the EP is the original field recording, meant to invite the listener to make a personal version. I only wish I could understand the meaning of what is being said in the field recording, but ah... well... I find this a very interesting compilation.
