Christendom's leading turntablist here nimbly re-assembles a pile of his friends' songs and the result is breathtaking. So you've got the compulsive opener "The Ringleader" with a great vocal hook from Lisa Kimmey of Out Of Eden; the hugely talented LA Symphony giving out on "Never Heard Before"; Sev Statik doing some mind boggling freestyle rapping; 4th Ave Jones namechecking Eminem on a hugely clever "What You Want" and even TobyMac's "J Train", which I'd never particularly rated on the 'Momentum' album, transformed by an AWLBoard Remix. With such hot guests and great source material, DJ Maj reaches even greater heights than his 'Full Plate: Mix Tape.002' debut. Thoroughly recommended.
