Trivial Pursuits Blog Review (trivialpursuits.org/category/albums/
"Hip Hop has always had a close relationship to dance music, indeed it’s quite hard to work out now which camp you would put the likes of Dizzee Rascal in. Geordie MCs Baron von Alias and MistaBreeze, as their Magnificently Great Remix Album showed, have never shied away from creating dancefloor fillers either. Their new EP is further proof of this.
Opening track Impact does what it says on the tin, slamming into your ears like a drum and bass fuelled juggernaut before giving way to some impressive rapping from the lads and a decent verse from singer Eliza Lawson. Step in the Room (below) is another great song, all dirty electric guitar and confident swagger. The rest of the album is very dance-orientated, to the extent that closing track Do Your Worst wouldn’t sound in the least bit out of place on a Chase & Status album, but the quality runs all the way through.
As usual with this gang, the rapping is superb, with plenty of tongue-in-cheek Geordie-isms thrown in. The major change here is the production levels. The backing tracks now sound fully polished, while guest vocalists add to the broad appeal. It appears Baron and Mista are ready for the big time. Howay the lads!"
"this ENTIRE EP sounds as though it were made for an energetic late night discothèque."
