Synopsis

Amazon.com
On DJ Cam's third full-length, he more than ever proves that he can do it all: lazy breaks, old-school jungle, and even the odd speed- garage tune. What's even more impressive than his quantity of stylistic references is his quality of execution. Prime examples of this high standard and diversity are "Broadcasting Live," featuring New York City's Channel Live; "Baron Samedi"; "Danger Interlude"; "Hardcore Freestyle," featuring Otis; and "Pressure," featuring Homebru. If you're one of those hip-hop purists, try on the latest Wu-Wear for size; if you like a bit more flavor, sample some of these hot French-fried beats. Formidable. --Daniel Shumate

CD Reviews

Bringing back that old school hip-hop
vadim's dog | moscow | 12/03/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Granted this album isn't as good as Mad Blunted or Dj Kicks, but I love it nonetheless. It certainly doesn't deserve the dogging other reviewers gave it, unless you despise hip-hop for some sick reason. Only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is because not all the tracks are strong...best joints are by far "I Love Hip-Hop," and "Success." Cam is, unlike some djs, tasteful with his scratches, and knows when they're best used. It has that old hip-party party flavor; put it on when you're out or having some friends over and want to get hyped."
Cam can do better

"I bought this CD after i purchased cam's mad blunted jazz. needless to say i am very dissappointed. Cam doesn't show his full potential in this album, and it is a very lack luster cd compared to his others. cam's a genious and all, but this album doesn't show it."
Disappointing effort from a hip-hop genius

"Having already purchased the previous two DJ Cam albums "Substances" and "Underground Vibes" my expectations for this album were high.However when I finally got to hear it,it was largely a dissapointing and frustrating experience,Cam gives us glimpses of his talents on tracks like "I Love Hip-Hop" and the collaboration with Channel Live "Broadcasting Live",but for the rest of the album he loses sight of what it is he does best which is making top class hip-hop.Most of his experimenting on this LP falls short of his usually high standards,his forray into speed-garage being a prime example.Overall I am sorry to say that this album comes over as a stale and lacklustre effort from a man with real talent.If you want to check out the true Cam sound I suggest you check out "Substances" or "Undergerground Vibes" both true Cam classics.
