Billy Gone Bad - The Acceptable Face of Rioting

Drum and Bass from Cardiff producer BillyGoneBad (aka Matthew Strangis) comes boasting some of the best track titles in recent memory ('Contains Mild Peril' and 'Independenthardworkingteamplay
ingcommittedbullshitter' being my favourites), though suffers a little from the tracks themselves seemingly lacking the same ammount of wit, imagination and thought going into them as went into their names. For the most part the music on display here is box-ticking and though it does often serve up a neat bassline or a great break, it never has enough going for it at any one time to really set itself apart from the other drum and bass out there.
