Roni Size/Reprazent’s 1997 New Forms was a masterwork that crossed the accelerated breakbeats of drum-and-bass with jazz fusion, R&B, and hip-hop, propelling the British DJ style worldwide. His latest, In the Mode, returns a sense of urgency to a musical revolution-turned-boutique genre. The vibe’s faster and gnarlier, and if cameos by Method Man and Zack de la Rocha don’t fully click, they throw impressive sparks. With Size, as with most visionaries, the true thrill is watching his vision evolve. B+
