8/10 Brian Staff review, 09 September 2010
This guy is producing some pretty fun tunage. As Ant introduced him with the teaser 12" a few weeks back, Chicago native Nathan Clark has been knocking out this strange hybrid style of looped sample-heavy bass music for half a decade. Most of these tunes have been on the internet or on limited run CDrs and in turn eagerly adopted by a new generation of street kids who soak up these strange pitched up rhythms & hyper repetition to forge mad-fast dance maneuvers that verge on James Brown stepping barefoot on white hot coals territory. So Jukin' or footworking is keeping these kids out of bother for a bit but does the music have much merit away from that scene? If the oft-maddening samples were removed, or reduced in frequency it would make for extra pleasurable listening - a very stark merging of R'n'B, house, garage & post-dubstep flavas with some sharp percussive elements, understated synth slivers & occasional excursions into more monging bass territory. This is rather minimal music that recalls the advent of Grime, in keeping with the ethos "the only way to go forward is to strip it all back to the base elements". Worth a punt if you're keen on keeping up with the ever-evolving world of electronic music....most intriguing!
10/10 kamikaze Customer review, 17th October 2010
I think I must have given this album enough listens by now to merit a place in my top ten of the year, as it's getting to that time of year again where list-season approaches and everything we've enjoyed throughout the course of the year must be ranked in accordance with quality vs sustainability vs new ground trodden vs longevity vs whatever else it is that stops us from filing records away. And this record fares pretty well when marked up against the above criteria. Well addictive, and ultra-tricky to keep your feet still to.
