Right off the back of their debut collaborative LP Someday World, all-round veteran Brian Eno and Underworld man Karl Hyde return to Warp Records with their follow up LP High Life. The release looks to unite the stark beauty found in the repetitive minimalistic works of pioneers Steve Reich and Philip Glass together with the undeniably funky grooves of Fela Kuti's polyrhythmic afro-beat. It''s an ambitious concept but the experienced pair more than accomplish it on 'DBF?'where the rollicking drum licks immediately draw up Tony Allen's masterful, effortless drum style, in combination with funked-out wah-wah guitars and barren electronics to create an endless groove.
