5.0 out of 5 stars Conquering like a... 23 July 2002
Format:Audio CD
The boys from Tyrant have come up with another exemplary selection of what dance music can actually be, rather than the old tosh paraded around by most DJ's the world over. With a vague focus on house this album sublimely veers from breakbeat to dub via trippy techy stuff, round the back for a quick go on some chicago and then trips over its face into some really bass bin shaking filth. Nothing is ever certain on this CD - the quality of the mixing is impeccable, which will have you guessing over and over again if that tune has been on before, is it new, is it cut up or generally which way is upright.
For those who have visited fabric in London this is very much like one of Craig Richards' sets there- very echoey, and sometimes very 5 AM where am I, but if being that wobbly isnt your thing Lee Burridge is on hand with quite frankly some of the most ass shaking breakbeat you're likely to hear for a while. As the liner notes say, this is music with It, whatever It is, the thing that makes you move 'yo ass' whether you damn well like it or not. Thats the thing about Tyrant - its Craig and Lee together, back to back, a bit of personal style and a bit of togetherness all rolled into one fairly twisted parcel.
Its hard to pick out standout tracks on this album as they are all so good, but the first 3 tracks really tell you what its all about with some interesting house melting into crisp break beat. Other highlights on disc 1 are Second-hand Satellites, and Orion Muzik on disc 2 should also pick most people up by the scruff of their neck. Interestingly enough try and find any of these tracks on other mix albums - chances are you won't. Why?
This is the future of dance music.
This is tyrant.
(Just don't tell everyone).

5.0 out of 5 stars The best of Tyrant to date 4 Feb 2005
Format:Audio CD
A standalone mix album on the Fabric label, who have picked up the series off Distinctive Breaks, this is the sequel to the highly rated Tyrant mix by Lee Burridge and Craig Richards. Shot to fame as the pair that rekindled Sasha's passion in the dance scene, they brought a bit of darkness and some tasty bassdrums to the dancefloor to a scene that was losing its way in 15 minute epic prog trancers with 4 minute ambient breakdowns.
Now a follow up is a hard thing to do, nothing is ever better than the first release, but in this case I would say that this surpasses the original Tyrant. The set on each CD is just perfectly created pitching you on a rollercoaster ride of moods and styles. CD1 comes out on top between the two, if the album was to only contain this CD I would be more than happy. Breaksy dub tinged house (for lack of a sufficient one word
description!) opens up the CD before shifting into Lee Burridge's own dark tribal tech monster, Lost, but rather than head down a murky house path we shift into the sublime spoken word house of KB's Groove, the dubalicious Kenny Hawkins before hitting the spooky electro of Multiple Mirrors. A cracking track which takes the Bedrock Beautiful Strange vocal and creates something that is far superior to the original and all of its remixes put together. Grimy acid breaks from Omni AM and clicky quirky house follow. The CD peaks and closes with the truly amazing Hot by Sieg Uber Die Sonne and Love Variations. I spent a good two years searching for Hot and Richards recently released it on his Tyrant label. Easily the stand out track of the album.
CD2 doesn't quite match the heights of CD1 but that is a rather tough act to follow.

5.0 out of 5 stars Who needs shoes and cake anyway? 27 Jan 2006
Format:Audio CD
Talk about being ahead of the curve - the more stripped down techy tunes here have, three years on, pretty much become the most fashionable thing on Earth. But don't let that put you off!
For a start, there's a lot more to this set than simple techy business. Our hosts manouevre between the latter, a healthy dose of subtle breaks and dubbed out house to great effect. And although it all makes sense at the time, there are a couple of surprises - notably the half-speed reggae breakdown in Ashley's War, and some extremely tripped out lyrics on Stucco Homes that sound like they were composed in one of Brett Johnson's dreams ("Where is my face?", indeed!) The mixing is impeccable, but has a nice 'live' feel to it as well.
Disc one is the deeper and dubbier, with the second set broadly more tech-centric. but both are eminently groovy, challenging and sophisticated slices of house music. (and incidentally, much better than the "Tyrant" Fabric mix, on which Richards flies solo.)
