Drop The Lime This Means Forever
- Words: Dave Segal
- Label: Tigerbeat6
Drop The Lime embraces chaos and grit like drill & bass originators Alec Empire and Squarepusher, as well as recent acolytes like Doormouse. Which means DTL‘s top priority is disorienting dancers and exploring textural and rhythmic extremities, but without getting scientific about it. At heart, This Means Forever is a party album-with breakbeats that kick and punch like an epileptic Bruce Lee. Most music in this vein is female repellent, but you can imagine Forever getting women (albeit very limber, spazzy women) dancing. DTL injects his explosive, intricate breaks and loony textures with funk, making him an anomaly among breakcore artists.
