SEIJI 3DOM Loose Lips featuring Lyric L.
"Another West London stormer. Broken Afro-tech with super-fast female rapping on one side, funked-out bass-bop on the flip. Nice."
MEITZ Get On Up
"A cool 12-inch with intricate nu-jazz/broken beat version. The real killer is the 80s-influenced Haarlack mix. Retro-esque."
CHICKEN LIPS He Not In
"Seriously heavy-duty sub-bass 4/4 dub/electro corker that won't leave my crate for some time to come."
4hero Hold It Down (Bugz In The Attic Co-operative Mix)
"Anthem! Nuff said."
JAZZANOVA In Between
"Their first full-length lives up to the hype. Very diverse. Very original. Very good."
