Various Artists Soulful Behaviour 2: Mixed By DJ Frenzic
- Words: Jennifer Marston
- Label: Defunked
Despite the lineup of notable characters-Calibre, D.Kay & Epsilon, Total Science and Laroque-the second compilation in this series falls as flat as the vocalist's pitch on Carlito's "Music is My Life." The main fault here isn't DJ Frenzic's mixing skills, it's the fact that the compilation's source material is uninteresting. The same platter of vocals, horns and breakbeats are served up in the same way every liquid funk-as this jazzed-up subgenre of d&b is known-compilation does it. There may be one or two decent tracks, but amid this shuffle of mediocrity they are sadly lost.
