Adam F Drum & Bass Warfare

Adam F's double-disc set (the second disc features a mix by Miami's DJ Craze) is a touch confusing to listen to. His sharp drum & bass sensibilities are still intact, even after his well-documented foray into hip hop-but here, he's chosen to combine remixes of his tunes (produced with the likes of Redman, Capone n' Noreaga and Pharoah Monche) into a slightly abrasive, melodramatic mix that sounds more bombastic and heavy-handed than clever or ground-breaking. DJ Craze's mix makes more sense. His turntable tricks and scratching are well timed, breaking up the relatively static vocal lines and linking them to the intense, densely packed rhythmic background.
