I heard Switchblade dropped in proper club seting last night after I could not possibly remember for how long, could not remeber what it was at first, so I sampled some of my older Jeff Mills records later on at home, and found myself with "More Drama" between hands. Never reached the hype or the popularity of other major releases of his, although one has to bare in mind that tagging Jeff Mills records from the nineties as unsuccessful is kind of a mild to moderate exaggeration.

Yet here we are and this partially faded from memory. Reasons may be many, let's not get into that. For the sake of analogy, let's just say it lacks the ground breaking gravity and sound design of the Axis material, and it's not, this bit being debatable, groovy with that tribal touch and striking as those early Purpose Maker records were.

In all sincerity, what it boasts are four locked groove pieces, chunky, funky, percussive and ready to be incorporated into a whole variety of sets in no time. That might never enable this four tracker to enter the pantheon of Jeff Mills work, but the easy going approch will make you reach for it in your bag more often.

Before I forget, the reason why I bought this back in the day lies solely within The Fuzz (Loophole Mix), a picture perfect tool driven by a crescendo of increasing bell sounds and slamming, linear beats. This was a proper piece of ammo in its day. Impossible to stay put once the siren like bells fully develop. I have fond memories of this one frequently getting tossed into the mix with Luke Slater's remix of Joey Beltram's Forklift, another nineties stomper in its own right.
Get them both, get them spinning and find out why.
