Like surgeons wielding laser scalpels, Manchester hip-hop hierarchs Dubbul O & Pro P expose the crushing mundanity and occasional highs of northern life like few others even attempt on this masterful mini-LP. Beats that could blow holes in steel doors drop like bombs amongst verbal pirouettes way above so much of today's lyrical gruel. "As We Proceed" is a hard boot to the knackers of anyone who thinks UK hip-hop crafted north of Watford doesn't cut the mustard. Massive respect to its venom and ambition.
Favorite track: Gimme Dat.
