    Part of the exciting boundary-melting that today's technology makes effortless, and building on their 2011 collaboration with beat poet Joshua Idehen (Routes), the London-based production team returns to Hyperdub with South African vocalists Okmalumkoolkat (whose previous collaboration for the label, "Boomslang," was a huge success), Spoek Mathambo and duo Ruffest for an album of irrepressibly manic UK funky and kwaito energy. The productions match the mood of the vocalists: dark and murky for Mathambo, cheeky and wild for Ruffest, and all over the map for primary vocalist Okmalumkoolkat this is party music with a killer global flavor, unafraid of limitations or of destroying your subwoofer.

    LV's South African explorations sound fresh in the current vogue for Footwork and trap rap references. [Sep 2012, p.73]
  3. The results are fun as hell, yet it's hard not to feel like LV have accomplished something with some legs on it.
