5.0 out of 5 stars A worthy addition to the already-quality Y4K series, 5 Nov. 2002
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Y4k Vol.4: Next Level Breaks - Mixed By the Dub Pistols (Audio CD)
Owning all four of the Y4K's, I think I am qualified to pass judgement on this album as right up there with the best. With a similar feel to Tayo's slightly commercial version, but not as funky as FreQ Nasty's or as dark as Koma and Bones', this album really hits the spot when the beats get kicking.
By stating that they are slightly commercial, I am not saying that this album, or Tayo's, would do well in The Charts, just that they are more likely to appeal to a wider range of people. The driving breakbeats that Barry Ashworth has used as a constant feature of his music will please most dance music fans, and the occasional funk additions will gratify more hardcore breakbeat fans, such as myself.
Afrika Bambaataa makes a more than welcome appearance in standout Track 12, with Krafty Kuts remixing the classic Funky Heroes. The Chems also feature on Track 3 with the previously unreleased Base 6, which really gets the album off and running.
Overall, out of the 4 Y4K's to have been released, I would place this equal first. With the other 3. All are demostrative of the current breakbeat scene at it's very best, and I recommend them all.
