As she approaches a level of crossover appeal that escapes most drum & bass artists, Reid Speed unsurprisingly takes the catch-all approach on her current mix-project, Life After Dark. Maneuvering through nitty-gritty Dylan rinseouts as expertly as she bounces with Mathematics and Total Science rollers, Reid provides an instant snapshot of the scene from top to bottom with a nod to the dancefloor that is instantly contagious. While the mix may lack a level of cohesion to the expert eye, Life After Dark provides an ideal environment for potential neophytes to dig deeper into drum & bass arcana.
