Classic Album Review: Freaky Flow | World Domination

The Torontonian combines turntable pyrotechnics with a nose for quality wax.

This came out in 2001 – or at least that’s when I got it. Here’s what I said about it back then (with some minor editing):

 


Most DJs know how to craft a mix that pours on the groove like booze at a bootlegger’s wedding. Others make their mark by scratching more furiously than a scout troop with poison oak. The ones who can do both with ease and panache — like Toronto’s Freaky Flow — are fewer and further between.

Combining hip-hop turntable pyrotechnics with a nose for quality drum ’n’ bass and jungle wax, our fleet-fingered friend Flow fashions a solid, seamless set guaranteed to keep the dancers on their feet, the groovers on the beat and the listeners on the edge of their seat. World Domination seems inevitable as another tortured metaphor in a CD review.
