Various - Plastic Surgery 2
For those who have been following the drum 'n' bass scene, they know it's difficult but never impossible, to come up with something new to describe Tony Colman and Chris Goss, the talented two better known as London Elektricity.  Then again, to list all their contributions and successes that they've had in the scene would require pages upon pages of content.  For now we'll just focus on Plastic Surgery 2.

In addition to featuring London Elektricity, who have four tracks featured, this double cd highlights the top talent of drum 'n' bass today: Total Science, DJ Kalm, Citizen and Danny Byrd.  The second cd is mixed by London, to better exhibit how well these artists fit so well together, blending into one beautiful, colorful composition.

Plastic retains the spine-tingling, foot-stomping aggression that dominates the genre, while adding jazzy, uptempo, dancefloor friendly beats.  It has an energy that is missing in many d 'n' b tunes.  Rather than attacking your aural senses with hard monotonous breaks, Plastic invites them to something intriguing, with variating harmonies, melodies and spirt-grabbing rhythms, sparking a curiousity in those unfamiliar with this kind of music and inciting relief for those who though tthe genre was dying.
