      Ras, and his acronymic debut RHYTHMIC ALTERED STATE, roots himself firmly in Africa, tossing out the percussion on “Do Your Dance,” as if he’s out there on the savannah. But there’s a bit of Spain, as well, in “This Is Ours,” even if the uplifting lyrics are a little bland. Unfortunately, “African Kangaroo” is unremarkable jazz, and the dark dub of “Areas of Perception” doesn’t do much for me. But the angular horns and jazzy syncopated piano chords of “Dashing Steps” overcome any lingering doubts, as does the Afro-jazz of “Diggin’.” And the mellow “Beat De La Romantique” shows a totally different side to Ras that’s quite appealing. “Exit Routine” ends the album on just the right note – frantic African drumming to cap a nice jazzy interlude.
