Albenrezension

For most, DJ Magic Mike's 1988 album Bass Is the Name of the Game is remembered for its speaker-ruining low-end and the fact that it went gold, which is some feat for a mostly instrumental Miami bass record. Ask someone who is a bona fide crate crawler and he'll tell you the album is much more, partly responsible for the turntablism explosion along with being a huge influence on cut-up funk folks like Fatboy Slim and most acts signed to the Ninja Tune label.

The album is also surprisingly diverse for a bass record, ranging from the almost Technotronic, hectic dance of "M&M's Gettin' Off" to the slow bedroom roll of "For the Easy Listeners," which borrows a healthy portion of the Isley Brothers' "Between the Sheets." Topping it all off is the classic "Lower the Dynamite," a track as important to the big beat genre as it is to the second wave of turntable terrorists (Invisibl Skratch Piklz, Rob Swift, the X-Ecutioners, etc.).
