Various Artists Solid Steel Present Hexstatic Listen and Learn
- Words: Steve Nickolls
- Label: Ninja Tune
The second installment of Ninja Tune's Solid Steel mix series, and Hexstatic are at the controls for unashamedly large party action. Going back to their roots, Hexstatic pick a fine selection of hip-hop, electro, funk and drum & bass, all topped off with some comedy samples, an exclusive track, and some Solid Steel interlude treats. All of which causes you to want to get another drink and jump around like a loon. As you'd expect, Listen and Learn is technically superb, with some nice usage of CDJ effects, and further proof that, alongside their admirably experimental instincts, Ninja still rock the best party in town.
