- Edited 4 years agoLike the first "Big Dirty Beats" release, this second one is even more awesome.
It's the kind of music that was (and still is) ideal for video games, action movies and other TV broadcasts. Both "Matrix" and "Blade" sagas prove it very well, as well as franchises like "Need For Speed", "Gran Turismo" or "WipeOut".
Concerning this compilation itself, it's the almost exact thing as the first "Big Dirty Beats" album. Beats, breaks, bass, acid, voice, industrial loops. Kind of a routine, yet each track manages to have their own sound, but this sort of music is so good that it doesn't matter anyway.
The song that really surprised me (in a very very very good way) is "Napalm Bohemia" from Girl Eats Boy. I already knew the version from his sole studio album "Thrilled By Velocity And Distortion", but this one rocks the house !
Both acts Cirrus and Omar Santana did also release records on Moonshine Music. For the first one, check their albums "Drop The Break" and mostly "Back On A Mission". Concerning "Omar Santana", I recommend his "hard-hop" anthem "Tricked Out".
Furthermore, let's puts some additional recommandations from other artists featured there :
- Lunatic Calm : we don't present their classic "Metropol", however their second release "Breaking Point" (which caused the closure of the "City Of Angels" record label) is also worth every cent.
- The Wiseguys : both "Executive Suite" and "The Antidote", of course.
- The DJ Scissorkicks remix of "All About Beats" : the soundtrack of "FIFA 2000" (with "Call It Brisco" and "LC001" also being included there) and his only album "Video Computer System".
To conclude, "Bigger Dirtier Beats" offers nice British and American breaks for our greatest pleasure. 5/5 any day.
