Review: Some blinding beat work from Mr Mischief on this double-tracker, headed up by the funk-filled title track. Sounding like old-school MPC swing in full effect, Mischief dices between drum loops on "Flaming Chestrug" while introducing some nu-funk horn stabs and building them up slowly around the beat. "1986" on the other-hand is slower and more brooding, with long and languid drones giving way to some superb brass loops, and generally recalling Mo Wax's prime years.

Review: It's a refreshing change to hear a bootleg mash-up that eschews the familiar in favour of something a little different. That's certainly the case with "Trouble In The Streets", which sidesteps the familiar funk breaks staples - obvious rap acapellas, overused breaks, well-worn party records - in favour of a dextrous, loose-limbed combo of classic jazz-dance (the groove from St Germain's "Rose Rouge"), dancehall vocal stabs, subtle breaks and elastic bass. "Ya Playin", meanwhile, gives an authentically old skool rub to a familiar hip-hop staple, re-casting it as a boom-bap mix of head-nodding beats and lazy horns.
