    singularly unique, and it absolutely captures the 90s jungle vibe in a perfect hallucinogenic way. like listening to the rave from outside the warehouse. amazing.

        I bought this ages ago, and didn't listen to it because it wasn't what I expected. I've finally given it a proper listen... I feel like I've been bathed in nostalgia.

        I wouldn't say it's a masterpiece, but the swathing ambience definitely has it's moments. High points for me are Razor, DTI and Dollis Hill... some heavy grooves. The immortal stabs of Rufige end the album on an almost transcendental note (seriously). Despite being very different to the original tapes, I'll bet many an aging junglist will be transported back to 1995 listening to this.

          The concept of this album is great - and it's been executed perfectly. Gorgeous, considered experiments playing around with the ambient interludes of old-skool jungle. Not to mention that deep sub-bass on 'Dollis Hill'. Highly recommended!

            What to say about this album? I will preface that I am not familiar with Gamble's other works so I do not have that as a reference. Now, I will say that the concept and execution are genius. The idea to take snippets of old jungle tapes and strip to the ambient parts and manipulate is done so well that I find this album more than easy to listen repeatedly. The variance from song to song creates a cohesive journey through that time period and it is a single person's view of that period through music. The songs are mostly ambient, looping affairs but to me are never boring as most of the songs change half way through most of the album. The periods of manipulated loops never overstay their welcome and the length of the album comes in at around 26 minutes making this a very quick listen and easily repeatable. That's my biggest issue with albums is that I collect so many (to me) that I find most albums difficult to come back to. Not so with "Diversions". The song ordering and sonic palette is varied enough that you can pick up new artifacts that you missed the first time. This is more introspective music so best to listen while alone or with headphones. Enjoy!
