- Words: Ron Nachmann
- Label: Offshore
Brooklyn-based DJ Clever brings together some heavies for this spotlight on his leftfield d&b imprint. On the a-side, Deep Blue's elegant "Do You Voodoo" draws spindly percussion and warm bass tones in the atmosphere, while Justice bumps traces of Amens against some rumbling low-end. On the flip, Pieter K's tentative "Rapport" flutters its drums and wows its bassline through emotive piano lines, while Graphic's off-balance percussion on "1000" proves almost sensual, though who knows whether it'll work on the dancefloor. As usual, Offshore takes risks .
