The laid-back dubby vibes continue ever onwards, punctuated by resonant 303 bassline exercises throughout, and I found that it’s a great album for leaving on in the background without demanding your full attention. Having said this, midway through the album, there’s an absolutely beautiful 10-minute track (one that I’ve kept returning to every day since beginning this review) called “Kitchqoorredux,” which really opens up in the final two minutes and reminds me of Warp production duo Plaid in terms of its head-nodding electronic beats and gorgeous plinky synth melodies.

This magpie ear for odd, leftfield sounds is Drift’s most explicit link to glitch-hop. The endlessly pinging synthesizer on “Light #1” seems to careen off every available surface, while it’s companion “Light #2” builds from a prism of Tron-like laser blurts. Chung clearly relishes a good rug-pulling, and he plays a thousand little tricks on your senses throughout the record– breathing sounds fluttering high in the mix, echoing, hall-of-mirrors synthesizers.

This is another album that I am posting because I cannot stop listening to it. It doesn’t necessarily fit all of the definitions of “really chill music,” but if you like IDM, dubstep, trip-hop, downtempo, or just really, really great electronic music, I think you will be hooked, too.

A shining moment of Jaydiohead is ‘Change Order’. He uses the wonderful Radiohead b-side ‘Gagging Order’ that proved he was more than just a fan. The guitars do wonders; I never imagined enjoying a rap over them. Jay-Z’s rap is done in a timely fashion by Minty, not overdone by pushing Yorke and the drums up in order to keep the equilibrium. That is why this album is so effective. For a moment you are able to forget that you are listening to two combined songs. That is the beauty of a successful mash-up. Two fantastic artists put together by another creating one majestic piece of ear candy

A mix between popular Mos Def vocals and classic reggae samples implemented by Max Tannone, Mos Dub came at the perfect time. With the weather heating up, spring in full bloom, and summer right around the corner, this breezy, refreshing mixtape has a release date that is just what the doctor ordered, and as a result, this should be in many summer rotations for weeks to come.
