Various Artists ( : TCR: 50 - Mixed By DJ Tasmin And 10 Sui

Should've been subtitled '2001: A Breakbeat Odyssey'.



Rennie Pilgrem's

TCR label celebrates

its 50th release

with two CDs of drum'n'bassisms and acid whirls, all

linked by beats that constantly percolate and elevate.





Necessary or evil? Trendy to the power of ten allegedly, but whatever received notions of cachet there are get quickly dispelled by the sheer hypnotic flow and almost primitivist elementalism of the mixes. Probably should've been subtitled '2001: A Breakbeat Odyssey'.
