The whole left-of-center instrumental hip-hop game is more overcrowded than the left-of-center music magazine game, so when you find something good, you might choke on a bite of burrito or pee in your pants a little. Thatís the case (I mean, not with me, but you knowÖ) with Ammoncontactsí debut long-player. Chopped beats give way to flowing instrumental freak-outs yet the albumís incredibly consistent pace and sparing use of MCs separates it from the rest of the pack. Itís refreshing to hear producers who arenít trying to be too clever, yet still maintain the raw funkiness of their vinyl-only influences.
