Mad Doctor X Chillonometry
- Words: Jon Weldon
- Label: Bomb Hiphop
Hey, don't hate on the name! The Chillonometric Doc (wha?) weaves a thoroughly delightful excursion of downtempo beats and melodies, by no means an easy feat this far into the well-developed genre of stoney hip-hop. Grounded by a few lightweight vocal tunes featuring TC Izlam, Tenor Fly and a lovely sultress named Jo Morgan, the album is both extremely musical (vibes, guitars, flutes and moogs) and rhythmic-langorous, sticky syncopation without cliché and flecked with just enough vinyl scratches to schmooze the lounge. Feel-good without too much sugar-coating, Mad Doctor X really just needs to find a new name.
