Pressure Drop Food of Love
- Words: Jon Weldon
- Label: One Eye Records
Reissues from Pressure Drop's early days find them comfortably nestled in a British downtempo party vibe that combines all things dub, house, trip-hop and friendly vocals, inna vintage Massive Attack/Groove Armade realm. "You're Mine" thumps four to the floor along anthemic female vocals, while tribal drum & bass skits across big, cheesy samples of "Big Noise" on the tune of the same name. The eccentric, rootsy vibe of "Legacy" gets morphed into downbeat dub by Manasseh and future funk by Paul Daley, and "Unify's" lush hyperactivity is transformed into warped broken funk by Maddslinky, all featured on the second remix CD. The originals groove blissfully with a lite uplift, while the remixes gently torque the flow-everything swelters pleasantly.
