Fifth Element Stone Cold EP
- Words: Star Eyes
- Label: Architecture
Fifth Element is a five-man collective anchored by Loxy & Ink, who deliver both beats and raps on this experimental d&b outing. The breaks ultimately compete with streetwise lyrics on all cuts, from the original-a dark roller with scissoring synths-to Keaton's lackluster remix and Bad Company's pounding dancefloor version. Hip-hop fans make sure to check DJ Crystl's piece, an innovative number full of breaking glass and rock guitars.
