Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Contemporary beat freaks care little for petty genre boundaries. While anachronistic hip-hop heads are busy keeping it real, their more open-minded dance-music partners are spilling over into new, unexplored territory. Take Los Angeles's Hive, for example. Hive's first album, the independently released Working with Sound, bridged instrumental trip-hop with casual jazz piano licks. Hive's even more at home on Devious Methods, the follow-up LP. Here, the beats come harder and faster and dip into aggressive ambient sounds and hardstep drum & bass, bringing along some angry guitars and a whole slew of voice-overs for the loud and bumpy ride. Unafraid to road-test new combinations, Hive plants flags for himself as a leading pioneer of the ever-expanding U.S. electronic scene. --Jon Caramanica

After sampling ultrasonic sound on the matrix soundtrack i knew this obscure american techno genius was good, but it turns out he's better than that. If you like your drums and you like them fast, this is the best LP you could ever hope to buy. The way the samples flow together is nothing short of perfection and the accompanying artwork is so surreal.... A huge improvement on 'working with sound' and a must for everyone that liked Ultrasonic Sound.

This album just kicks ass, it is really well done, and there are some absolutely amazing songs on this album like "Ultrasonic Sound" and "Devious Methods". There are so many different styles that the artist uses and thought out the timing is perfect. Is a must buy if you like crazy kick ass industrial techno, drum and bass, electronic, trip-hop.

This is a superb album, no doubt.

Interesting, exciting, fun and banging. This is breaks at their best.

Years later, this is still a prized posession and a special listen.

If you like breaks and you dont have it, get it. You will not regret it.
