STAFF PICK: Meat Beat Manifesto, Storm the Studio (Wax Trax!): “Sound sculptor Jack Dangers pioneered a masterpiece featuring four tracks remixed four times over with Meat Beat's signature bass-infested grooves. Sixteen years later, it holds true that STS stands the test of time: a foundation of severely funky beat work, sample-laden effects and fierce lyrical elements.” (KUCI DJs Pietrobot and Freakquency Modulator; their show,Digital::Nimbus, airs every Friday at midnight; digitalnimbus.com.)
