We mentioned the grooviness of 6 Underground on Instagram way earlier. It’s time to give the album some proper words. Becoming X is a good example of the things I like about trip-hop: dark psychedelia, urban beats, deep bass-heavy grooves, and general sexiness. The opening five tracks in particular are very strong and they alone make the album worthwhile. This is an apt contender against the deific complexity of Mezzanine and the dark swagger of Maxinquaye.
