Part 2 Live From the Breadline

Known primarily as the beats guru behind progressive UK hip-hop crew New Flesh for Old, Part 2, through a bevy of remixes, has hinted at possibilities far greater. The prospect of Live From the Breadline was therefore quite promising. Nevertheless, the record is overstuffed with guest vocalists (Juice Aleem, Sandra Nelson, Lotek) and does little to establish Part 2 as more than a "producer" (albeit a highly skilled one deft at drawing from all manner of black music, from grime to dub to raved up garage). Perhaps foolishly, I was certain there was an Endtroducing in this man; not when on the breadline, evidently.
