A Skillz & Krafty Kutz Trickatechnology

Despite clever pseudonyms implying that they are music production masters, the debut album from UK duo A Skillz and Krafty Kutz contains more false promises than a presidential debate, with far less entertainment value. Twisted breakbeats are muffled by canned crowd noises or whining synths, while a bassline hinting at a potentially funky "Gimmie the Breaks" is marred by the cheese-encased lyrics of Kurtis Blow. About the only thing saving this album are the old-school piano grooves on "Give You That," where the collaborative efforts of guest vocalists Obi and Real Elements make for a worthwhile track.
