"Urbal Beats :03" is a brutal and dark combination of savage breakbeat, techno, hip-hop and drum & bass.

The first four tracks feature great names of hip-hop such as Mos Def, Method Man and Afrika Bambaataa, and then we enter into the breakbeat world thanks to DJ Icey, Orbital, Underworld, Hardknox and Bassbin Twins.

For me the top tune from this CD is the Millenium mix of "Now Is The Time" from The Crystal Method, which gained fame with Gran Turismo 2.

At last we got two slower-paced songs from Moby and UNKLE. Their respective albums "Play" and "Psyence Fiction" are highly recommended for those who are looking for cool trip-hop and eclectism.

This compilation was released on a record label which hosted artists like DJ Icey, Orbital, Armand Van Helden, CJ Bolland, Goldie, Utah Saints and Carl Cox. Therefore you can pick up this CD confidently, unless you're not into electronic music and/or hip-hop.
