5.0 out of 5 stars Eerie SciFi atmospheres, Stormin' basslines & bassy beats..., 15 May 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: The Creeps: Invisible and Deadly! (Audio CD)
The masters of Dark Drum & Bass return with "The Creeps", 2 wicked CDs with recent choons by the Duo.
Having bought Roni Size & Reprazent's "In the Mode" a little while ago, and being deeply disappointed, "The Creeps" was my cure. The tracks are Dark Drum & Bass with a sci-fi theme, even the Cd case is styled like an old-time Sci-Fi movie.
The analogue basslines like those in "The Medicine" and "Alien Girl" are gone, and replaced by deep dark floor shakin' mayhem. And the beats are pumpin and rich in bass. Their use of Fx and ambience to create eerie alien atmospheres is ingenious. My favorite tune right now is "Flightpath". And "White Lightning", "Ressurection", "Pacman", "The Creeps" and "Check out Time" are also ones that won't grow old quick. I have a feeling that DnB will evolve with Ed Rush & Optical, a lot of Producers had followed the LTJ Bukem style with Booming Basslines (really just a 303 drum kick played low). There's not one track that I don't like. They do special stuff with the vocals too, I think that an MC over a track just bare like that isn't that good, but they have changed up the vocals to make them sound futuristic, alien and evil. Words of warning; don't buy "In the Mode" by Roni Size & Reprazent, & avoid their song - "Dirty Beats" at all costs. But if you like true Drum & Bass, get Ed Rush & Optical - The Creeps, you won't be disappointed, look at all these reviews, notice something? They're all 5 stars. We can't all be wrong can we?
