For the latest volume in its ongoing Rollers mix series, V Recordings offshoot Chronic has asked experienced Brazilian DJ/producer L-Side to handle mixing duties. He naturally does a fine job, working his way through 21 tracks from such rising talents as Jaybee, Command Strange, Serum, Fiaco and Euphorics. The mix is naturally slick, with L-Side selecting cuts that tend towards the spacey and rolling, whilst retaining the punchy D&B breaks and cyber-sonic sub-bass that Chronic is renowned for. Highlights and plentiful, and include the revivalist jungle riddims of "Meditate" by Need For Mirrors, the bruising sub-bass and hip-hop vocal snatches of L-Side's "Soundclash", and the unstoppable weightiness of Command Strange's "Unlimited Bass".
