As at least one of the greatest reviewers here in discogs have already reviewed this beautiful album that is so 90s all the way, one comment: Lion Stone heavily samples The Amalgamation Of Soundz "Orchid". As will all the dnb/triphop/downtempo albums of the 90s, I guess that samples from other great works are everywhere but only recently we are beginning to know their source.

Wait, no, I am going to give my opinion too. Before drum n bass had some kind of a crisis near the 00's, where everyone felt forced to do jazzy stuff or soul stuff and the results were either as good as 4hero or as stiff as the second Megashira album, most of the producers followed the jazzy sound via samples and their mix with some real keyboards or instruments. Indeed I don't know who was the one that put the double bass into play but he/she deserves as much credit as who invented air conditioning. Double bass is the heart of this album, similarly to Bassment Sasha or Roni Size, and jazzy leanings independently on how "pure" they are, what give the tracks a lot of breathe and space ("Serious Intent" wanders very close to be a Shakatak tune). But what I appreciate the most are two parts. First is that it does not take jazz that seriously, which is something it took ages to find out again (I remember blaming this on Gilles Peterson, now I know that is bs). And second is that spacial mixing that was still away from the overcompressed mid 00s albums that made me take the headphones and throw them away, far. Rhodes, different presets, drums, vocals, just beautiful arrangements all around.

Endemic Void only released one album, EQUATIONS, but its jazzstep funk still rings strong today. "Hydrosphere" has a slickness like pure lubricant to it, while "Lion Stone" takes a familiar riff and sets it along some mellow breaks. "Serious Intent" brings in some full-on piano jazz for good measure, and Emma Stow adds her dreamy vocals to the drifting "Inner Daze." "Inflectious" has some phased horns at the center of its melody, with some jungle flourishes for good measure, and "Evolution" takes a more freeform approach to its structure. A slow darkness reigns supreme on "Confuzed," though the rapper is only OK, but "Intermission" ends the album on a nice, funky note. It's too bad Endemic Void didn't get more chances to solve additional equations.
