    <b> Exile </b> - Pro Agonist

    Exile is known for all different styles of drum'n bass. But this debut album should see him breaking away from the restrictions of that genre. The rolling breakbeat pleasers are there of course. But sitting alongside are some pretty deep forays into reaktor patch ambience and digital disruption.

    The centrepiece is the insane 'Broken Language'. A remix, no, complete re-edit of a track he did with John B. The hyper-edit cuts and DSP tricks do not detract from the addictive groove. Comes complete with the most almighty drop half way. I defy you not to be rhythmically propelled.

    All hits, no misses. The up-tempo tracks really kick and grind, the experimental pieces are worthy of expansion and the whole album has an easy flow and narrative to it.

    Close to the edits. The Art of Exile.
