Visionary Vs. Division One

Global Clash

Nice + Smooth

Top Toronto producers Marcus Visionary and Nemesis are behind “Sola Bossa,” a lovely flamenco-ish summer rave track, co-starring Sol Azul. That song is included by the end of Global Clash and is the album’s unquestionable highlight. Elsewhere, this is an incessant, exhausting ride through turbocharged drum n’ bass and jungle, with constant MC-ing and frantic backbeats.

Global Clash is too tiresomely repetitive to work effectively in your own living room, with tracks that doesn’t really differ all that much from each other, although those signed by Visionary are more direct, cleaner and purer than Division One’s are. But this is an effective showcase for the twosome’s club capabilities and mixing skills, and fans of party jungle and up-and-about drum n’ bass shouldn’t miss out on them performing live.
