Having invigorated the breakbeat scene in his native Spain, Seville's Digital Base now sees his first full-length album drop on iBreaks, ready to take on the whole world. Oldies like "Turn Me Out" and "Get On Dance" get included along with a whole range of new jams and some essential remixes too. After a long build-up, opener "Decibellum" immediately provides a storming start - a real masterclass in how to juggle a variety of beats and breaks into an energetic and dazzling mix. "Right There" follows up shortly after and sets the real vibe for the album - hard and dirty breakbeat but balanced with plenty of melody - in this case via a round-the-houses cover version of Fatboy Slim's "Right Here, Right Now". Included with the album are a set of remixes of DB tunes new and old, and some DB remixes of others (such as his truly standout treatment of DJ Mutiny's "Dreams Come True"). Names like Dekoy, Rex, 4Cuba and Break The Box all turn in blinders, but it shouldn't distract from giving Digital Base his props on dropping such a well-crafted and unrelentingly banging debut.
