5.0 out of 5 stars High-quality interesting dance music, 9 July 2005
By 
This review is from: Saturday Night Lotion (Audio CD)
If you've heard stuff from Plump Djs before then you know what to expect, and you will not be disapointed as the beats are more diverse and the bass better. For me, this album has many good tracks with many varying beats. Most of the songs include deep, ripping electronic bass with zipping, darting laser-like sounds along with light-airplane-type sounds, computer beeps and clean effects/sounds/drums that the chemical brothers may use. The music is very electronic and, if played out-load, makes you want to dance, and if on headphones, makes you walk fast as if on some kind of mission. It is neither trance, house or drum n bass, but rather breakbeat - the future for dance and hip-hop. The tracks are mixed into one another so the album moves from one track to the next smoothly, without abrupt glitches. Most tracks build, drop and then build again, often coming in with either a new beat, sound effect or instrument. There is vertually no singing (apart from Soul Of Man's song) meaning all the effort has gone into production, and this has resulted in a great crisp and clean electifying sound, it also means that the DJs are not trying to get in time with the singer/rapper, but can rather follow their own intuition and lead. The DJs have remixed and included a few tracks from other artists - lee coombs (plump's rmix is v good), sole claw, madox, soul of man, dylan rhymes, drumattic twins (v good song) and freestylers (rmix also very good and won an award, this song has a deeper, heavier beat than most of the other songs, something the Plump DJs sould do more often). This leaves 11 new plump tracks, which consist some amazing beats, so much so that I think even DJ Shadow would be absolutly amazed by the drum work! The best song the plump DJs have ever made - The Push (from Eargasm) has not been outdone (a task I think almost impossible) but they do come pretty close at times. In my opinion this is their best work to date and worth buying. This album is growing on me all the time and will require a couple of listens to get into and understand, but gee, it's worth it!
