Right Beneath Your Feet , the new six-song EP from Krooked Drivers, is packed with big-beat styles that take a hip-hop head's sensibility for sample chopping and merge it with the kind of thick synth bass and pad washes that have taken over the post-dubstep world. The duo's intricately layered and crisply delineated sounds envelop pounding drum patterns to create a musical product that's sure to resonate with fans of Pretty Lights and other acts from Colorado's current electronic-beat gold rush. While tunes like "All Time High" or "Loose Ends" stand alone as instrumentals that grow and evolve, those pieces are contrasted with songs like "Forgive Me," which could use the presence of a good MC to provide more oomph to a beat that would be better as a canvas for lyrics.
