AllMusic Review by

Danny Breaks is in top form for his tenth release on his own Droppin' Science label, splitting time between dense, snapping techstep breaks on the A ("The Bear") and a funk-soaked, bass-popping snare-feast on the flip ("Crime '96"). Typical of Breaks' merit as a producer, both tracks draw clearly from a range of styles (hardstep, jazzstep, darkside, tech) while at once building and expanding on each with board-work and production trickery (Breaks' drum flanges and snare clusters are signatures) recognizably his own.
