Album Review

AK1200, America's premiere jungle DJ, definitely concentrated on his mixing during the '90s, only rarely stretching out with a post-production (for Rabbit in the Moon, Dub Pistols, and Cirrus, among others). Finally, in 2002, he issued a production album, Shoot to Kill, and he made up for his lack of experience behind the boards by recruiting a handful of the outstanding drum'n'bass technicians in the world. Any production LP including just one of the following names — Rob Playford, Danny Breaks, Dominic "Dom & Roland" Angus — would deserve a second look for jungle fans. All three appear here, and Playford, arguably the best producer in jungle history, co-produces (with AK) no less than seven of the 12 tracks. Fans looking for next-level breaks, however, may be slightly disappointed; Shoot to Kill is less a productions album than a collaborations album, and space must be made for a parade of intriguing vocalists: Junior Reid, Terra Deva (for the solid single "Fake"), Phife Dawg, and Last Emperor (on "Contact," one of the highlights). Elsewhere, Playford adds a nice early-'90s throwback, "Deja Nu," to his career of great productions. Much better than the usual collection from a mixer-turned-producer, Shoot to Kill is that rare latter-day drum'n'bass album: one that advances the craft while still pulling in potential new converts.

Customer Reviews

elemts live...

this CD is sick, but not nearly as good as his live stuff...went to Elements in Denver Colorado last night. As soon as i walked in AK1200 played, i had no idea i could dance like that....crazy, have to see him live

A master on the turn tables

AK 1200 is a genius on the turn tables. As the first poster stated, seeing him live is second to none. But, for those of us that are unable to catch him live, these releases will do the trick. If you can, try to find his "Mixed Live" CD with MC Navigator. It's old but still sets the precedent for live CD's. To this very day I listen to it and never get sick of it. I caught AK live at NYC's "Limelight" club, along with Diselboy and many others. I'll never forget that night and these CD's bring the memories back. Way to go iTunes, I hope they add more AK 1200.
