Jason Sparks Heroes and Villians
- Words: Chris Muniz
- Label: Botchit & Scarper
Having quickly become one of the standout stars at Botchit, Jason Sparks delivers a heavy-duty breakbeat album that sets him apart from the crowd. While there's a natural element of dancefloor at the core, don't expect a traditional nu-skool take on beats and bass; Sparks draws upon an assortment of influences that range from Portishead to Miles Davis, with a little My Bloody Valentine thrown in for good measure. Heroes and Villains creates an easy space to get lost in-Jason entrances with exotic blues and jazz samples while cinematic atmospheres and sci-fi details keep things on the dark side. Very necessary.
