Über Bentley Rhythm Ace
Birmingham-based Bentley Rhythm Ace combine the talents of record-digging cut 'n' pasters Mike Stokes and Richard March, the ex-bassist for Alt Dance outfit Pop Will Eat Itself. Genre-pioneering Skint-style big beat grooves start the party with a mix of mashed-up elements of Funk, jazz, rock, Lounge and exotica served upon a hip-hop platter. Suspiciously groovy rhythms chug along at an unhurried mid-tempo pace like slacking off on a Saturday afternoon, weaving in and out of a hazy blend of peculiar effects and slovenly sound samples. Unusually stylish.
