An epic dance/big-beat album: highly recommend!,
This review is from: Decksanddrumsandrockandroll (Audio CD)
This was my first big-beat album, after a college tutor told me that the stuff I write sounded like them (just not as good!)These guys really know their stuff.
Most of the tracks are quite "musical" in that you can listen to them, not just "have it on in the background". The beats are absolutely first class, the bass lines equally cool. There is nothing limp-wristed about this album, but it has a good blend of up-beat and laid back grooves. Best tracks are "take california" (listen to that cymbal effect and the cool turntable work),"on her majesty's secret service" (a bond remix that finally augments the original: epic) "spybreak" (from "the Matrix" lobby shootout scene. Incidentally, if you can get the special Matrix DVD with the option to listen to only the music -without the explosions/dialogue etc- this scene will totally blow you away!)
Great CD to drive to: 'intelligent' and 'primal' in perfect harmony. Brilliant.
