THE Slew combine a whole heap of influences to create something unique with 100%.
The bulk of 100% is based around cut-up classic rock guitar riffs and vocals that are principally funk, sometimes rock, sometimes blues, sometimes spoken word.
However over subtle head-nodding hip hop beats and samples, the rock and funk is sliced and diced and pushed and pulled around to amazing effect.
Because tying everything together is the genius of turntablist Kid Koala, the man behind Classic Collection addition Carpal Tunnel Syndrome - and the same warped originality of his solo stuff is in evidence here.
With The Slew's 100%, we see him running at full capacity again.
