DJ 360’s debut, <I>33 Revolutions Per Minute</I>, stitches together loose fragments of hip-hop, big beat and jazz to weave an intriguing cloth. The album opener, “Something a Little Bit Different,” has meandering keyboards backed up by a solid beat, while “Tag Along (Come On)” is a bouncy number. The album brings to mind other hip-hop fusion artists, most notably Pepe Deluxe. But there are some touches that are unique: the simultaneously delicate and stomping “Piano Peace Pt. 1”; the Monster Island visit of “Beware of Manholes”; or the skittering drum ‘n’ bass of “Piano Peace Pt. 2.” The closing track, “Shh…” goes for a quieter approach, calm and dreamy. There’s plenty on this album to enjoy, so spin right in.
