Various Artists Global Assault EP
- Words: Ron Nachmann
- Label: G2
G2 features an international quartet onto two slabs. Norway's Monkey and Large flip a Jay-Z sample to lace their big, intriguing raver "SLAM!," while Austria's Mindmachine just gets loudly busy on "Illusions." Meanwhile, the Yankee known as Pollen brings some good chime to his punk-funk roller "13 Ghosts," and Aussie Greg Packer refreshingly keeps the emphasis on the rhythm with his "Auxillary." This stuff works.
