This is the product of Quantic soundtracking an extreme sports TV series on a network better known for their love of money-digging majors and eye candy popstrels than cutting-edge Brighton beats.

Al Stylus contributes "High Rise," an upward looking collage of soothing strumming, splashing percussion and dazzling keys. Wikkaman & Ulysses's "Sweet Science" fuses broken step percussion, a venomous bass and roving utopian synths with outstanding precision. Now where's that snowboard?
