John Arnold Style and Pattern
- Words: Peter Nicholson
- Label: Ubiquity
The Eddie Van Halen of broken beat is back and he‘s got the grooves on lockdown. Seriously, Detroit‘s favorite axe man is more than up to the task of equaling his stellar debut album as he tightens his focus to 10 slices of funk for the floor. A rubbery, anaconda-huge bassline plus Ty on the mic for the title track? Massive. Crispy-fried MPC beats plus Randolph‘s honey croon on "Rise Up"? Huge. "La Cocina" (a track born from live improv that was added at the last minute) could have been left off, but with the added bonus of Mr. Scruff and Henrik Schwarz‘s remixes of "Inside," this is not to be missed.
