Baby Mammoth joins the Pork team with their debut 10,000 Years Beneath The Street and it's no surprise that all tracks are excellent to relax to. The production is not optimal yet, but is compensated by the thought-out basslines, such as on "Oh Really!?", the bright "Dima" and the finger-snapping "Van". "Whiskey Soul" is a bit on the boring side, but the other tracks are interesting enough. The irresistible downtempo groove "Come Again" and the comfortable "Past Lives" are instant pleasers, while the mystic "Mysterious Muses" and "Thin Air" follow a more graceful approach. "Binks" pushes the tempo up to deep house terms for a crystal clear and modest groove. My favourite, "How Can I Love?", has a beautiful mechanical moodiness to it with its sad melodies. A very promising start.

The Pork label has become renowned for its mellow output, and Baby Mammoth’s first album is chock full of easygoing downtempo grooves. Still <I>10,000 Years Beneath the Street</I> shows all the hallmarks of a first album – the individual tracks aren’t distinguished enough, save for a few standouts, like “Mysterious Muses” and “Binks”, the tracks blend together in your head. The album is still, without a doubt, spliff-worthy and perfect for a night of staying home and smoking, but it’s the first bite of the delicious Pork chops that Baby Mammoth would go on to produce.
