Barely Breaking Even Records have scored themselves a major coup here, with instrumental album from popular UK hip-hop DJ The Last Skeptik. Although immediately following a recent rap album with Rewd Adams, this long player is a different kettle of fish - featuring 15 prime cuts of jazzy, trip-hoppy workouts. Highlights include the g-funk of "Wig", the insanely catchy "Be There" and the surprisingly upbeat "Pick Your Battles".
Famously outspoken cult figure The Last Skeptik is back with new LP I Don't Even Like You on Barely Breaking Even, and he clearly hasn't lost any of the fire in his belly. There are seven tracks here, all teeming with a creative tension: from the pained electro-soul of opener "Show Me", to the slo-mo bounce of retro horror movie soundtrack "Cheerio" via the future-laser stripclub bleep-jam of "The Computer Love". Dope!
