Skitz- Homegrown Vol.2

January 14th, 2006

Out on Silent Soundz, this mix CD jam packed with over twenty high quality tunes, is on some extremely high energy vibes, with silly amounts of established names including Mystro, Dynamite MC, Life, Blak Twang, Lowkey, Taskforce, Yungun and many more. There's also a healthy bunch of lesser known names, but of no less talent. The mixing by Skitz is faultless; each track sliding into the next in smooth and top notch style. The early Fallacy and Fusion contributions are superb, very much suited for some intense volumes in the car or crib, whilst midway tracks such as 'The Code' by Yungun and 'Beef Stop' by Blak Twang offer some breathing space. Skinnyman's guest spot on 'High Grade' by The Elementz has some interesting lines about rappers only loved by university students and Lowkey's 'Playing With Fire' calms the pace down a little to reach a nice conclusion to the fantastic release. This is surely one of the most consistently enjoyable and classy mix CDs in a long time.
