4.0 out of 5 stars Next generation beats, 15 Jun 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Drop (Audio CD)
Deep, melodic and soulful aren't adjectives commonly associated with drum n bass but depth, melody and soul are to me what this album is about.

The opening track sets the tone with warm, uplifting synths drawing the listener in, topped off with a killer vocal.

To the seasoned raver the track names suggest a familiar theme, and listening to this album is certainly an uplifting experience.

Theres a few innovative gems too. For instance the use of a windscreen wiper sample (Wipe your tears) to create a really fresh, dubstep sound, I think is not only clever but indicative of an intelligent, boundary-pushing producer. The fusion of guitars and dnb breaks on 'Damage'is done with a sophistication that, in my view, transcends that which has already been done by the likes of Pendulum, and dare I say it, The Prodigy (and thats coming from a long-standing Prodigy fan!)

Be prepared to be surprised, pleasantly surprised by this album. Although many will recognise the majority of the tracks here as drum n bass, I think its both too narrow and too broad a genre to constrain this album. Boundary-pushing seems more appropriate.

Wicked opener, I look forward to more material from this geez...
