Various Artists Breakbeat Science Exercise 5: Mixed By Clever
- Words: Brock Phillips
- Label: Breakbeat Science
Crazed mobs haven‘t yet crammed Comiskey Park yet to set flame to stacks of Metalheadz wax-but amongst the downturn in dance music as of late, drum & bass has arguably fallen the farthest and the fastest. A shame, as there are a few brave souls out there (like NYC‘s Clever) holding it down for the polyrhythmic ingenuity the genre was initially known for. While this mix plays it safer than Clever‘s Troubled Waters disc of last year, there are still numerous standouts-the lithe rhyme style of Beans hitting on every other beat of Graphic‘s "I Am Metal" and the insect-like skitter of Ezekiel Honig‘s "Love Session," among others.
