killamix of bleeps'n'breaks'n'bass from the "mysterious" (hardly!) Dr. Wo, virtually an essay on the genealogy of ukrave in hip hop and reggae given sonic form. my favorite transition: Ability II's "Pressure Dub" into Maurizio's "M7" (now why is these white guys' appropriation of the rootical less problematic for me than the drill'n'bash street kids's? cos it's so utterly earnest, perhaps, tapping directly into the religiosity? or is it cos it's more of fusion--with techno&house--thing than a wholesale parody/homage?)
