An absolutely monumental entrance onto CD for the West Country dance pioneers who take their electric brand of influences (underground techno, hip- hop and, of course The Prodigy) to make a joyful noise before the Lord. Lay all your prejudices about "cheesy" sanctified dance at the foot of the cross and allow Matt, LB, Edi and Psalmist to take you on a thrilling polyrhythmic musical ride with the two mixes of "By Your Side" which manage to be on-the-edge yet completely accessible (proof? - its immediate addition to the UCB Cross Rhythms radio play list) while the rock-orientated "Catch The 101" is equally stunning with its memorable hook "catch the rhythm of revival." A band with the potential to be massive. A single every dance buff will want.
