Enjoyably unhinged debut from club promoters/DJs turned recording artists
Trying to pin down The Method is like attempting to bottle buttered fog, but one thing’s certain?there’s madness in there. This four-strong crew met six years ago when promoting (and DJing at) their own eclectic club night and a similar, anything-goes philosophy underpins their debut LP. It’s hip hop, but also absorbs rock, electro-funk, orchestral lounge, punk and nu R&B. “Baby You’re So Funky” is Beck gone big beat, while “Sexy Potatoes” makes like Barry White guesting on 3 Feet High And Rising. Elsewhere, Beastie Boys, Happy Mondays and Prince breeze by. Bewildering, but (almost) brilliant.
