        Black Market Gardening is Fila Brazillia at the peak of creativity. Few other bands can create such a "live feel" with so much technology. Black Market combines downtempo stone cold chillers with hustlin' latin soul and disco and deep space vibe like few other records. 'Blubber Plinth' changes effortlessly from a trip hop hazer to out and out break beat stomper and tracks like 'Xique Xique' and 'Onc Mongani' roll on forever in blissful phased and reverbed crescendo's. It all comes crashing down with the brilliantly mono-toned and thunder filled July 23rd. This crop was well tended and raised in the sunlight of high summer and nurtured to bring about one of the finest vintages of its time.

          <I>Black Market Gardening</I> continues Fila Brazillia’s quiet domination of the downtempo world. “Snake Ranger” slides by on wavering synths and a chorus of flutes, while “Little Dipper” starts off with an old-time piano sample before shifting into a funk workout. “Wigs, Bifocals and Nurishment” skids into disco territory, but not so much that you’re pulling out your platforms. By contrast, “Xique-Xique” is smooth and sweet, like a dancing baby’s bottom; “Onc Mongaani” (how do they come up with these names?) is an ambient space journey and the closer, “July 23,” continues this journey into summer. Brilliant.
