AllMusic Review by

Producers Johnny Cuba and the Loop Professor are the motivating force behind Dynamic Syncopation's hard-hitting, high-octane sound. Part of South London's prosperous hip-hop scene, Dynamic Syncopation sounds confident and capable on In the Red. The 14 tracks here pit an eclectic mix of British and American MCs against Dynamic Syncopation's punchy, fast-paced compositions with, for the most part, satisfactory results; the few uneven moments are definitely the exception rather than the rule. The supple production keeps things moving, and in its best moments -- "My Verse First," featuring English duo Phi Life Cypher, or "Imagine That," featuring old-school legend Chill Rob G. -- the results are impeccable.
