Various Artists DJ Hyper: Wired
- Words: Jennifer Marston
- Label: Thrive
Hyper is often hailed as a pioneer of the breakbeat scene, but Wired begs the question: just how innovative is Guy Hatfield's sound? Disc one renders doubt, since the mix lacks almost everything but trance samples circa 1998. The beats are simplistic and minimal at best, making you wonder if we're moving forwards, backwards or stuck in the same old field full of shit. Hyper redeems himself with a second disc of gritty, glitchy beats and complicated breaks from the likes of Marscrusier, Andy Page, Uberzone and Attack Force, and if he's indeed looking for new territory to explore, this is it.
