The Dirty Beatniks' debut, ONE ONE SEVEN IN THE SHADE, pokes fun at Elvis with its short intro, then lays into the beats of "Don't Stop." This was the heyday of big beat, and those influences are all over this album: the thick beats, the 303s. But "Beatnik Bounce" has have a hint of cheeky disco in it, and "More Danger" starts off with some moody downtempo before the requisite hip-hop sample drops. The mix of Spanish guitar and blippery of "So Vou de Mulher" also pops out. The synth pads and mess of "Hypnotysin'" provides a nice atmosphere that's missing elsewhere, as does the unabashed funk of "Roger 'n' Andre" that shoots unexpectedly into outer space. But overall, this album doesn't have quite enough to lift it out of the pack. There are some bright spots here, but the album stays too much in the shade of the big beat era.
