In Brief

** 1/2 Roni Size/Reprazent, "In the Mode," Island/Def Jam.

November 19, 2000|STEVE BALTIN

The jungle music hero keeps the beats coming fast and furious, using American hip-hop as the foundation for dense drum-and-bass arrangements. In keeping with the hip-hop motif, "Ghetto Celebrity" finds guest Method Man rhyming with the rapid-fire tat-tat-tat of a machine gun. The recently released "Mode" is an occasionally impressive soundscape for the clubs, but the unrelentingly frenetic pace will eventually wear out all but the most devout drum-and-bassheads.
