Downtempo Joints - DJ Cam

DJ Cam is well-established in the downtempo/trip-hop scene, and has put out consistently solid material. "Twilight Zone (hip hop remix)" utilizes a simple downtempo breakbeat and a few nice string samples to give the song an epic feel.

The drum break is solid, but Cam puts in all his work on orchestrating the samples and adding some well-placed scratching. It almost sounds like the whole track was made with a 4- or 8-track; you can kind of hear the samples fading in and out. It's not in Shadow's (circa "Endtroducing") league, but definately a worthy addition to your downtempo collection. Oh, and features one of the dopest 12" labels you'll ever find.
