Steve Lawler begins the second volume in his Dark Drums series with the same track he began his first with, Aaron Carl's "Dance Naked." Quickly, though, you realize that this isn't going to be an entirely different ride than the first volume. Lawler veers off into the unknown soon after, avoiding the widely known songs of his double-disc Global Underground mixes for a more obscure selection of tracks. Yet just because these ones aren't as well known doesn't mean they're atypical of what you'd expect from Lawler. No, this dark, tribal, thundering-drum DJ sticks with the same style of hot and sticky progressive house he always has. The only thing that's changed are the tracks.
