Review

Review Text In the late 1980s and early to mid-1990s, DJ Magic Mike enjoyed what you could call "quiet success" -- he had his share of million sellers and was hardly obscure, but he didn't receive nearly as much hype and publicity as Luther Campbell. Although This Is How It Should Be Done wasn't hyped to death by the media, it was a major hit among bass lovers. The most important element of this CD isn't the rapping -- in fact, many of the tunes don't contain any rapping at all -- it's Mike's talents as a producer/mixmaster. "Magic's Cuttin' Up!," "Keep It Goin' Now," "Magic's Funky Jeep Beats," and other exhilarating tunes on this album are essentially vehicles for his cutting, mixing, and producing. On This Is How It Should Be Done, the most valuable tools in Mike's arsenal aren't his rappers -- samples, soundbites, beats and turntables are the things that do the most to make this album come alive. ~ Alex Henderson
