Actually, 3.5 outta 5. The Blue Mountains do it again. Must be something in the water. Or maybe it's just because they have clean water in their neck of the woods. Whatever the case, here is another representative who, with this particualr tune, has a good idea of hip hop with a welcoming reggae influence. Right up my alley. Although Brokn has snatched the much-used 'Bonita Applebum' break, he still displays skill in which samples to select and the art in putting it together. With Tuka and Radical Sun blessing the tune and adding even more flavour, it's a definite thumbs up.

Quality production, a little close to some of the early portishead (not that that is a bad thing, but those albums were released 15 years ago), the drums are a little obvious, but well played, and it feels like it needed to go somewhere else to really take it to the next level.
