Review: Now, this latest project from Dev79 goes by the name of 'Can't Fit In A Box', and we really feel that despite it being exactly what is says on the tin, Black Marble Collective have swapped boxes with Pandora as carnage in unleashed. This one kicks of with 'You & I Is Us', which features additional vocal work from MC Elixir, layering his potent vocals over a jukey, breaks hybrid, destined to damage dances. This is then followed strongly by the energetic vocal stabs of '215 Alive' and the hardcore nostalgia contained within the arrangement of 'Emerald Tree Boa'. finally, 'Where Kings Are Bred' strips everything back to cool bass sounds and breakbeats, rounding every up with a dash of finesse.
Review: Black Marble collective are back at it again, here ready to continue their impressive run of releases with the latest drop from Frenquency, unveiling eight brand new corkers, showcasing a large range of styles within the footwork expanse. Throughout the release we see a number of wicked features, including Bankster on 'U Want', BSN Posse on the junglistic 'My World', Atactic on the spooky overtones of 'Soundbwoi Dead' and Taro on the colourful chord movements of 'Gamelan People'. For us, the two stand out recordings on this one have to be the crunchy yet super atmospheric 'Fluencia', followed by the super percussive swings of 'Tokyodesu'.
