Review Text This is the debut full-length CD release by Boston's DJ C, who is a Beat scholar, party scientist, ragga maniac, and remixer of artists from M.I.A. to Gregory Isaacs. He continues to spread his fiercely eclectic gospel of crunkment, mashstep, ragga-bounce, and grime-hall across the land with previous releases on Kid 606's Shockout, and his own Mashit, as well as U.K. labels like Death$ucker and Scandal Bag. Many of the sonic weapons contained in this album have been used by top DJs around the world to kill sound-systems and destroy dance-floors. Closely coveted, they're brought out from arsenals at special moments when heavy artillery is called for. This is a warfare not of physical violence, but instead a sonic battle for dance-floor supremacy. These tracks present a combination of compositional-complexity and pure visceral energy that puts them in opposition to the vast conspiracy of the mundane. They draw from musical roots deep in the underground and radically join genres together into a sturdy trunk. The branches reach around the globe like tentacles slapping booties and moving feet everywhere. Use these tracks for good times and fun. The enemies of moving rhythmically will be defeated. Long live the dance.
