Coldcut: More Beats and Pieces

While mainstream industry folks have spent the past few months trying to find the road to electronic music nirvana, the folks at Ninja Tune not only own the map, but have made some alterations along the way. One secret ingredient: Dope beats, dope beats and more dope beats. Coldcut’s More Beats and Pieces (Zan CDS58 31:14) is a soup to nuts assortment of rhythms and textures, from Coldcut’s room-shaking “Daddy Rips it Up” mix to DJ Q-Bert’s twitchingly schizoid mix of “I Miss You Blobula.”
