DJ Slip She's a Time Traveler
- Words: Cameron Macdonald
- Label: Broklyn Beats
Troy Geary (a.k.a. DJ Slip) gives us some trauma-center disco on "Conception of Cool" by spending his first two minutes carving a groove out of a life-support machine's whining bleeps and ticks. A kalimba-cradled Afro-funk rhythm then kicks in for dancefloor effect, but the track is a curious moment in an otherwise underwhelming record. "All Night" sounds created by a haunted Roland TB-303, and "Ufixedit" is a fine slab of micro-house that seems like it's been awake for three days. But too much of this album lacks the berserk tension and gonzo cleverness for which Broklyn Beats is known.
