Compilations like Juke Joint II are the DiGiorno of mixes, culled with such impeccable taste and inspiring breadth that they sound like your music-obsessive friend could be mixing them live in your living room. Normally, buying such mixes seems like a lazy shortcut; if the groups are good, you buy the albums. But the duo of Boozoo Bajou German producers Peter Heider and Florian Seyberth flawlessly thread in theme and theory, pulling out the subtle interlocking grooves in artists as far-ranging as Tony Joe White and the Meters, then adding a sweet-comedown finish by Josh Rouse. Although these silken segues have become the baseline for such collections, Bajou also excels at divergent disconnections like Hanna Hukkelberg's "Cast Anchor," a sullen singer-songwriter track that's all floating horns, lemonade and feet dangled in the lake. And when you get to the pair's original contributions, you begin to see a free-floating pattern in the eclectic scatter, a unifying focus on deep beats, dreamy spaces and tripped-out tangents that gorgeously cycle through every conceivable mood.
