As one of breakbeat's leading lights, One Dead Jedi makes a return in top form with his full length LP project 'Non Player Character'. From start to finish the album is a perfect example of how creative breakbeat production can be when enough spark is applied. Be it either the classic rolling drums of 'What's The Dealio?" or the smooth ride driven rhythms of 'Critical Hit', the full spectrum appears to have been addressed and recreated brilliantly. Other highlights from this one include the junglist chops of ''Backstreet Feline Micro Drama' and the synth heavy title track 'Non Player Character' which cartwheels along traversing a multitude of musical themes.
Ahoy Hoy! Following last year's album Who Needs Reality, young Rory returns with a fresh party cache for 2018. As always with Hoy, the focus is fixed firmly on the furious funk vibes as we slip, slide and slither through seven cuts, four of which are written with kindred funker Quincy Jointz. Highlights include the pitch-shifting vocal looping insanity of "Just So Fresh", the salubrious bass plucks on "Bounce If U Want 2", the sleazy guitar textures fretless bass runs of "Funk On Funk Off" and the heady blend of euphoria on "The Other Side Of Forever". See you on the other side!
