Various Artists Offshore Presents Troubled Waters: Mixed By Clever
- Words: Ryan Romana
- Label: Offshore
Anyone who mistakenly thinks all drum & bass sounds the same should dive straight into Troubled Waters. This mix boasts 15 of the Offshore label's refreshing leftfield leanings, which give equal treatment to both the breaks and the bass. Label head DJ Clever passionately mixes the drumfunk rhythms with no disarray and there is enough variety to keep your ears at attention. Particularly gripping are the dreamlike vocals of Seba's "Make My Way Home" and the off-kilter noises in Sileni's "Twitchy Droid Leg." Definitely a contender for the one of the best d&b mix CDs this year.
