AllMusic Review by

Though Simenon's breakout hit "Beat Dis" isn't quite as frenetic as contemporary material by Coldcut (or even M/A/R/R/S), the debut Bomb the Bass LP is an intriguing trip through sampledelic hip-hop, electro, acid-house, and even dance-pop (as on his other hits, "Don't Make Me Wait" and the Burt Bacharach cover "Say a Little Prayer"). Much of the album mines territory similar to "Beat Dis" -- that is, inventive hip-hop tracks like "On the Cut," "Megablast (Hip Hop on Precinct 13)," and "Dynamite Beats" which are somewhat indebted to Mantronix.
