CD Review: Breakbeat Era - Ultra Obscene
July 12th 2000, 01:10 CEST by TomC

We're trying something new here at the 'Crap tonight - and that something comes in the guise of reviews. Lately people have expressed concerns that some topics weren't really much to go on as far as discussion fodder was concerned - so get your teeth in to this. Do you agree with the views expressed? Have you heard the album, and do you agree with the opinion? Will you try this type of music now? Have I put you off entirely? Will our valiant heroes escape the unnecessarily slow-moving dipping mechanism? Read on...



One of the most idiotic things I have ever seen written in the field of music journalism was a review on an American website of Goldie's "Saturnz Return". I paraphrase slightly when I quote it as "...we all know that drum & bass is hip-hop with double-time beats and half-speed basslines." I'm certain that the author had listened to no drum & bass at all - let alone the album in question. Regardless, if no other album ever does, last year's "Ultra-Obscene", by Breakbeat Era, proves that reviewer wrong in one fell swoop.

For several years now, much has been written about the confluence of jazz and drum & bass. Despite what you may hear, I'd contend that it hadn't happened. That is, until September of last year, when XL Recordings put out Breakbeat Era's debut. Plenty of recordings in the past have been accused of being the ultimate fusion of jazz and drum & bass - notably, Reprazent's award-winning "New Forms", which I would argue was not the happy medium between the two at all, but merely contemporary jazz influenced by drum & bass. Sure, it's a start, but it's not 'It'. Drum & bass is undoubtedly branching out, like the generic 'rave' genre out of which it grew - the main branches being what one might call dance-oriented music, and artistic music. Among the dancers are folks like Ed Rush and Optical, and their darkcore brethren, while the other brand encompasses some of Goldie's recent output, Ray Keith, and so forth. As with most developing musical forms, that leaves the middle way, which is so far empty, in my view. And that is where Breakbeat Era come in.

Born of Roni Size and DJ Die's exploits with singer Leonie Laws, Breakbeat Era occupy not only the middle way between dance and art, but the middle way between drum & bass and jazz. The album, "Ultra-Obscene" not only contains tracks adhering to each discipline, but tracks which fuse the two perfectly - while "Past Life" revels in rolling, old-school jungle, "Our Disease" pulls in scintillating vocals, infectious bass lines and (depending on one's definition of the word) nigh-poetic lyrics. "Breakbeat Era" is the perfect medium between modern jazz and jungle, while "Life is My Friend" and "Bullitproof" combine wonderfully complex, spidery drums with intelligent, if dark, lyrics.

More than half the appeal is in Leonie Laws' vocals - while no Mariah Carey in terms of range, her expression and scat-like style, perfectly complemented by the tortuous beats, set the mood for every track perfectly, from the skittish mischievousness of "Breakbeat Era" to the sharp depression in "Life is My Friend". Although female vocalists have always been the norm for this family of music since the early 90s and the advent of happy hardcore, this is one of the few recordings to really suit the sound of a woman's voice - not least because of the slow, heavy bass lines that fill most of the fifteen tracks, a throwback to the days of the original junglists, sure, but still a sign of things to come, in their execution.

Everything about the album conveys an atmosphere of grubbiness, unwashed industry and grime. Even the cover, a slightly glossy mock-cardboard affair bound with something that looks like denim throws out impressions of urban decay, impressions which are furthered by the content of the album's lyrics (dirty at best, immoral mostly, and suicidal at worst). The production favours them too, with a metallic colouring to Laws' voice on most tracks, and deliberate distortion on the deepest parts of the unplumbed bass.

It's been said of many albums in the past that they should be the 'soundtrack' to one's summer - very few could conceivably be the soundtrack to your winter - but this was, and a bloody good winter it was too.

"Ultra-Obscene" should be available from jungle.com, hmv.co.uk and plenty of other online stores - it's still fairly readily available in the shops in the UK.

My favorite Rush album is Permanent Waves.  I also like Moving Pictures, Signals, Power Widows the best, but that's when I learned to appreciate their music.  I need to go back in the archives and dig out some of their older work.  I do like a lot of the older stuff I hear on Exit Stage Left..

Oh, <i>what</i><b>ever</b>. You're certainly entitled to your opinions of Presto, Power Windows, Grace Under Pressure, Counterparts, & Test For Echo (all of which I think kicked Moving Pictures ass), but to say that their work is of low <i>quality</i>? Ah... no. Listen carefully, grasshopper. Rush's compositions have always been outstandingly well produced, with nary a sour note.

At least you didn't come out and say "Roll The Bones was totally gay" or something equally insipid.<I><B></B></I><I></I><I></I>

I'm not a die-hard Rush fan, which is obvious when I say my three favorite albums are 2112, Retrospective (yeah, i know, best hits) and Moving Pictures. I like a few of their other albums, but those are the main ones.

La Villa Strangiato or whatever is a manly song. See, I don't even know the song names.

Oh, I didn't necessarily mean the quality of the recording. I know the guys in Rush are phenomenal musicians, Neil Peart and Geddy Lee are extremely talented. I just don't think these guys have the magic that they used to, which just comes when you're an aging rocker.

One thing -- I've listened to Grooverider, and I don't really see the semblance to this music. Not that it is a bad thing -- perhaps it is the tempo that removes it from the classic drum and bass sound that I started to listen to....hmm....not a problem...hard to catagorize though. I really like her vocals. Using Mariah Carey in any fashion (positive/negative) doesn't do this vocalist any justice -- she's way better than that.

hmm just visited the Breakbeat Era website, and I just have one thing to say: people need to friggin debug their crap before they put it up on their web servers.

I expect bugs once in a while in games (unfortunately), but I can't deal with that crap making it's way into friggin web pages.

Rush is one of the greatest bands my ears have ever had the pleasure of experiencing.  I love the old stuff, the new stuff, etc ... they come out with the best lyrics.  :)

And one of the things I really respect them for, is they are a very popular band, but they don't do the "Love Song" thing.  They have a few of course, like "Speed of Love", but even those aren't typical of songs in that area.

Rush rocks.  :)

I know that :) I was just trying to come up with the most unfeasibly unsuitable comparison :)
BTW, if any of you ever get the chance to see Breakbeat Era performing live, seize it with both hands - the live set is even better than the album.

Nice review. I bought the album when it first came out and returned it for having too much filler. After hearing it more recently, and hearing them live a couple of times, I'm wondering if I was a little hasty.

By the way, if you're summarising drum and bass, it seems strange not to mention any of the Logical Progression people, especially since the direction in which Goldie, etc., are heading is one they introduced.

While i thought that Ultra-Obscene was a very good album i'm not convinced that its as good as New Forms. The opening track from Ultra Obscene (sorry, can't remember the name) is a true great, one of those 'hair standing up on the back of the neck' pieces of music the rest of the album didn't do a lot for me. I thought that New Forms was consistently brilliant. And Roni Size does a better set than Breakbeat Era (ignoring this years Glastonbury) :)
Very good review, its nice to see something different from the usual stuff on PC.

Yes I have, and I think it's four (or more) 'e's, incidentally (appropriately enough for their era ;) - Deeee-Lite or something :)

You definitely haven't listened to any _whole_ album. There were some "squeeky rave vocals" there, but also some very complicated and beautiful jazz stuff.

I played in a death metal band before (1990-1993), but it wasn't a Death/Morbid Angel clone, it was pretty original. Quite high-tech. I might put it on my "soon-to-be-done" band site under "History" or something. Prepare for the "most shamless plug"!

Totally off-topic:

I like to have a desktop notes application running for my to-do list. I currently have a thing I wrote in Java embedded in my Windows active desktop. Obviously that uses horribly large amounts of memory and requires an annoying solution to the applet sandbox restrictions.

I remember finding a wallpaper-replacement some time ago that allowed you to literally scribble all over your desktop, essentially a more free-form version of my current Java applet. Does anyone know where to find this? I know of about a million desktop sticky note things but they're not what I'm looking for at all.

Thanks.

I've taken to listening to Drum & bass on winamp while working at home, and man, I can get a lot more done with that on than just about anything else. Somethign about it just kicks my productivity into overdrive and stops any distractions from filtering in.

GodZero -- yeah, I mangle song titles regularly, but I can listen to a song and have the whole tune pop in my head right away.

I remember the last Massive Attack concert I went to, and I was wondering -- is it typical of UK bands to replay their song set if they have more time to do so? I didn't mind -- I was there to hear it anyway, but it was cool to get an encore.

Talvin Singh opened for 'em too -- I never knew what kind of percussion you could wrest out of a pair of tablas. That was freaking excellent.

I'm going to Fabric (big D'n'B club in London) a week friday and Talvin Singh is playing a set which could be pretty cool.
I personally prefer it a bit darker, Dom and Roland being a current favourite.

One question, after a cursory glance over the posters, most of the people commenting on the drum and bass stuff are European. Is it less popular in America ?

At one of the local nightclubs, they turned a room over to drum and bass one night. Nearly empty the whole night :( People would come in, wince at the bass, and leave again. Philistines.

I've read of plenty of stuff going on in the States but usually on D&B websites, etc. So I have no real idea of its popularity over there.

guess Im in the minority who thinks Drum n Bass is utterly tedious :)


course, that could be because I _play_ drums and get a feel for music by how the percussion is being used. Drum n Bass just, I dunno it doesnt work on any level for me


as for Dance music .. when I can sit and play along with 90% of what I hear ... well you know its manufacturered nonsense...

I usually like the heavier end of the market, but not the light speed wailing/gurgle of death metal ... tho Cradle of Filth raise the odd smile....

Musically, Im quite happy to listen to the Kyoto Drummers from Japan .. now _that_ is headfuckingly heavy stuff :)... or put on some Gregorian chant (for some reason my typnig speed shoots up when Im listening to that stuff).. or kick back with some 60s stuff when music was music damnit

as for Djs, I mock their limited skills in beat matching and playing other peoples music.

Armand Van Helden IS Ali G, nuff respek innit.


Im rambling ... just back from practice .. was fun rattling through some Fleetwood Mac songs (not fond of them, thats just what one band plays)

oh and the Corrs .. *dribble*

As far as D&B goes, I'm into it -- prehaps not as much as a UK fan, but I have my share of it in my collection.

I think just the fact I've seen Talvin Singh should pretty much show I'm into "non-top40" stuff to begin with.
