8/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 14 October 2010

OK, I'm not gonna make any claims to understanding anything about the mechanics of, or the artist's involved in Chicago's vibrant Juke scene, neither will I make any claims to understanding why a UK electro label Planet Mu would want to expose this music to a public and culture that probably doesn't really 'get' what the phenomena is all about. What I can tell you is that DJ Roc (along with DJ Nate and I'm sure many more) are forging a new territory in music that skillfully manipulates beat making devices and sampling technology to create something fresh for the kids to get down too...and when I say get down, I mean GET DOWN. We are talking some serious footwork here, like Step Up X 1000 (it's ON)! DJ Roc (Clarence Johnson) is good though. I can't really be arsed with the constant bombardment of cut up vocal takes (apart from maybe the Umpa Lumpa shit...dat's funny yo) but other than that I'm digging the flavours. This guy crams it all in with samples constantly invading the mix from all angles (let's hope Mike is equally prepared for the inevitable lawsuits that will be flying his way from all angles) monkeying with my already mashed up mind. As I said early, I won't try to pull this apart and evaluate it, I'd rather take it on face value and enjoy it for what it is which is a wild new form of music primarily produced to dance to and enjoy, simple as that. Check out the press release for artist background (he's obviously got a better grasp of Fruityloops than i have) and the tracklisting for laughs. Gun Smoke anyone?
