This album was written by two great producers from the golden era of Intelligent Jungle / Artcore. It features silky smooth production, lush sounding pads, bright synth lines and beautiful chords. Being somehow futuristic yet vintage sounding at the same time, its very classy stuff indeed. As Code NKK mentions, this was indeed overlooked, a criminal offence in my opinion. Perhaps now it is time for the sublime music on this LP to finally receive some well overdue praise.

This is an amazing album which somehow failed to garner the same attention as projects by Goldie and LTJ Bukem around the same time. I believe much of this was actually produced in 1994 - I saw Fabio review "Salsa Flavour" in Atmosphere magazine that year, for instance and the tunes certainly have a '94 production feel to them. However, they are streets ahead of much contemporary Drum & Bass in terms of subtlety and execution.

The aforementioned "Salsa Flavour" is a real fusion between Salsa and Drum & Bass. All the Brazilian influenced D&B that's coming out now falls flat in comparison with this gem. The whole album is brillant though, don't pass it up if you see it 2nd hand!
