Review Text Long admired by DJs for their ability to produce tracks that fit any type of gap in a mix set, Futureshock finally released a full-length in 2003 on Junior Boy's Own. Although a few of their methods lean uncomfortably close to Underworld (their labelmates on the respected JBO label), the duo of Phil Dockerty and Alex Tepper illustrate their reputation as handy producers to stock in a crate with a set of 12 able productions, each in a different bag. "Another Hit" is a great example of the high-stepping British house track, "Late at Night" an excellent twist on the typically detached, debauched electroclash production, and "Kato's Revenge" a solid mid-tempo breaks track. The duo even jump on the post-club auto atmospherics of Dirty Vegas with "On My Mind" and dip into minimal techno for "Sparc" (and, yes, that's just the first half of Phantom Theory). Setting to one side their schizophrenic production personality, Futureshock don't create any tracks here great enough to rank with the best in any style, but their commitment to everyman dance music is hard to argue with. ~ John Bush
