By 1994 the underground music cultures had had an explosion of new styles emerge from the seeds planted in the 80s by proto-techno and old school hip hop. Electronic music started to be seen more than just dance music, and new movements arose, such as ambient. Hip hop evolved into non dance styles as well. All of these tendencies led to the downtempo phenomena. Ninja tune and Mowax were among the premier labels fostering this type of open minded hip hop experimentalism. Gone were the days where a rapper was seen as essential to a hip hop track, and the idea of hip hop being more than party music was born. UNKLE's The time has come EP featured a blend of loungy trip hop rock , proto big beat, and at times a type of heady "intelligent techno" electro funk. Compared to other genres that wear prolific at the time such as 'intelligent techno' or 'ambient dub', the sound from early UNKLE and MOWAX label in general was appealing to hip hop and jazz heads as much as for electronic music aficionados. It was a great release at the time and it still holds its ground. Yes Brian Eno and plenty of synth music had gone deeply into ambient in the 70s etc, but the integration of hip hop into that whole thing was the new development in all this.
