4.0 out of 5 stars true hip hop, 27 July 2010
This review is from: How I Got Over (Audio CD)
oh well this is very very good. Having never been a full on The Roots fan, but having always keep an ear out for them, I was one over straight away with this album. Everything the BBC review says is spot on. The message is uplifting, the songs infectiously catchy, in fact theres nothing to dislike. (except maybe the short length of the album!)
Buy buy buy!

4.0 out of 5 stars the slim alternative, 27 July 2010
This review is from: Money Clip and Credit Card Holder
A great alternative to the bulky wallet. If you dont need to carry round much more than plastic and cash, then this is perfect. Obviously no space for coins, but thats what helps keep it so slim so that it fits easily into my front trouser pocket.

4.0 out of 5 stars quality debut, 21 July 2010
This review is from: 1984 (Audio CD)
The album was hyped a lot within the DnB circuit, and if you want deep, the Consequence album 'Live for Never' goes so much deeper, but having said that Perez does a fine job here of creating serious DnB, that has a strong dancefloor edge. His use of vocals and samples is spot on in tracks such as The Cut Deepens and Foresaken. Recommemded for DnB fans and most definately worth a listen for people who don't normally buy DnB

5.0 out of 5 stars ultra deep, 21 July 2010
This review is from: Live for Never (Audio CD)
Without doubt THE deepest DnB album I've ever heard. Anyone familiar with the Autonomic/D-Bridge/Instra:Mental sound will recognise the tunes on here as being the finest example that this recent trend in DnB has to offer. Although this gets stuck the 'Minimal' label, these tracks are anything but. Full of samples and atmopspheric noises, the vibe on the whole album is deep, musical and at times more soulful than liquid funk could ever be.
Importantly though, and why it deserves 5 stars, is that it works beautifully as an album, and a listen from start to finish is indeed a musical journey.
Highly recommend for long term DnB fans who are looking for something fresh within the genre.

3.0 out of 5 stars good, but dated, 21 July 2010
This review is from: Musique Concrete (Audio CD)
Having bought this album upon its release I was blown away. Calibre is without doubt the single most talented producer to make DnB and has since gone on to produce the stunning Second Sun and Overflowalbums as well as releasing 2 back catalogue albums with Shelflife [Australian Import] & Shelflife volume 2.
Yet comparing his more recent material to Musique Concrete, the album does sound a little dated and for me doesn't get played that much these days.
Still, tracks like Always, Sax Track and Deep Everytime are gems that shine through.
All in all an OK album, but I would recommend 'Second Sun' to get a better impression of the man's skills.

4.0 out of 5 stars DNB classic, 21 July 2010
This review is from: Inside The Machine (Audio CD)
A classic album from the original DnB super group Bad Company. Dark, menacing and very very heavy, it sums up the sound of DnB dancefloors in the late 90s, long before jump up took over.Interesting as well to look back and see how producers like DJ Fresh and D Bridge have developed since then.

4.0 out of 5 stars true school, 15 Sep 2009
This review is from: This Too Shall Pass (Audio CD)
one for serious Jungle heads. no gimmicks no silliness. deep basslines. crisp breaks.

2Cds one on a Dnb Vibe, the other on a slower, at times, dubstep-like tempo.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it, 15 Sep 2009
Hilarious!
a novel spoof on the buddy army movie. Cleverly playing on the "play within a play" concept and with great comic performances from all, but especially Robert Downey Jnr as the method actor (think Russel Crowe)stuck in the character of a black Vietnam soldier!

4.0 out of 5 stars Liquid rollers, 15 Sep 2009
This review is from: Fabriclive 46 (Audio CD)
A nice little mix from Bukem.
Lacks a bit of variety at times on the breaks front, but he rolls out the mix in perfect Bukem style with a good selection of liquid tunes.

5.0 out of 5 stars the rawness, 15 Sep 2009
This review is from: Raw Truth (Audio CD)
Outstanding, at times cinematic-like production from Lynx, mixed with the gritty sounds of Kemo make for a novel take on the DnB sound. The vibe is urban, melancholic and moody.

Effortlessly switching between DnB tempo and slower hip hop beats, the album has a real flow to it, that make it feel like a complete work and not just a bunch of random tracks thrown together.

Due to Lynx's production, these tunes reward repeated listening as they are filled with so many little details, making them great Ipod material.

Probably the best DnB meets vocal album around.
