Various Artists FabricLive 32: Tayo
- Words: Matt Earp
- Label: Fabric
Holy moly, is this ever a fun mix. Tayo takes the '90s breakbeat structure pioneered by folks like Aquasky and Bassbin Twins (both featured here, the former with Ragga Twins), grabs the more stepping tunes from the dubstep scene (Skream's "Lightning" and Digital Mystikz "Anti War Dub"), throws in dope Jamaicans like Warrior Queen, and isn't afraid to include Mr. Weird himself, Si Begg. Tayo keeps it lively while pushing the envelope, but the icing on the cake is his own tunes, all four of them winners.
