If Higher Octave's California based studio group 3rd Force thought it had the market cornered where the hardest core street rhythms met contemporary jazz, a stranger from the other coast has just upped the ante. The four members of Four 80 East could have been more creative than calling its debut The Album, but hardly more intense when it comes to thick, synth heavy, bass-driven throbbers which all at once hypnotize and get the dancefloor moving.
