On this side of the Atlantic, when it comes to electronica, we want instant gratification, big hooks and beats, stoopid-fresh funkiness and little fuss about art. London's Freestylers fit the bill. Alternating groove-intensive instrumentals with rap-ragga vocal numbers, this sprawling collective aims to get you freakin' on the floor, and anything less is a failure. We Rock Hard isn't much of a listening album: The rhymes are kinda corny, the arrangements often lack depth. But the welcome return of electro pioneers Soul Sonic Force on the show-stopping title cut proves how this mix of live performance and sample lust combines newfangled rhythmic revivalism and old-school people-pleasing until present and past merge into one big booty-breaking party. If this won't make you spin on your head, nothing will. (RS 813)
