Using a speech sample rather than White's own vocals, the Skeptical collaboration "Move Way" is the most aggressive thing he's put his stamp on in some time. The toolbox might be familiar, but like the best drum & bass club tunes, it's the details that count. Behind the booming drums lies a ticking percussion track that gives "Move Way" a multi-dimensional atmosphere. It's intensified by suspenseful sounds in the foreground that echo like ricocheting shrapnel.
On the flipside, "Death Of A Drum Machine" looks back to an all-but-forgotten time. Taking in drumfunk, now a relatively obscure form of breaks, White wedges terse vocals between the joints of its old-school drum samples. But even this one bears his distinct touch, with eerie synths that roll back and forth. "Plain To See" is more like the dBridge we know these days—its stop-start '80s drum machines move stealthily forward alongside melancholic melodies rather than the techstep growls of "Move Way."
