Metro L.A. created one of the best and homogeneous dark breakbeats sets ever with ost of their earlier work. The mixing transitions between each tune are the icing on the cake.
This is an absolute must-have for breakbeat listeners, as Metro LA largely contributed to the early to mid 90's breakbeat scene along with Bassbin Twins, Rennie Pilgrem, John Kelley, Depth Charge, DJ Icey and Southside Reverb inter alia.

A continuous clever blend composed of well-dosed acid loops, various paces and intensities of breakbeats, robotic voices as well as an alternation of soulful and industrial sounds that will make you move for over an hour.
No wonder a bunch of these choons are featured on several breakbeat compilations.
- "To A Nation Rockin" is included in the second half of Adam Freeland's "Coastal Breaks" DJ mix.
- "O.S.T." is part of the "Electro Breakz 5" compilation that I highly advise if you especially like big beat.
- "Stone Skippin" is found in the West Coast breaks comp "U.S. Homegrown" a.k.a. "Total Trip Hop". If you like early Crystal Method, then this comp is for you.

None of this track is a filler, as the beat pattern changes continuously. The resonating bass, low-pitched or high-pitched 303's and the cool sampled vocals created an excellent production as well.
It's totally the type of music that I'd love listening to while travelling on the "Shinkansen" pictured on the front cover, yet it's more suited for parties under the moon.
