J.D.S. The Adventures of The Purple Funky Monkey
- Words: Stacy Meyn
- Label: TCR
Breakbeat‘s renaissance offers up Julian Napolitano and Darren Pearce as the duo all the heavy hitters lurve. Sixteen tracks here follow on from JDS‘ FFRR stint ("Nine Ways") and solo flier "Purple Funky Monkey." "Dirty Funk" continues the trend of heroin-grade hooks, stripped-down beats, and plush bass, along with iz-old skiz-ool funkster "This is Kalifornia." "Freaky," "Rockstar," "Good Old Days," "We Got Conga," "Disco Rockers"-catch the J.D.S. drift? With this sweat-inducing soundtrack, these monkeys prove themselves major breakbeat players and a mutual remix society is bound to proliferate.
