    this album is not on spotify but it should be. having to listen from youtube! very interesting to see where sherard ingram aka drexciyan dj stingray came from. his sound evolved from vibey trip hop into slammin futuristic electro.

    This is a release I think many may know of because of its features on Mo Wax compilations, most specifically the Headz series. After listening to those compilations myself I noticed Urban Tribe did a ton of tracks I really enjoyed–and after picking this album as a response, I can only say this release is a paragon of 90s trip hop and instrumental hip hop.

    Went I first listened to it through I had to ask my fiancé if I was just really high or if the music was really that good. She said she was really enjoying it, and having listened to it many, many times since, I can confirm: it really is that good.

    Every song feels painstakingly composed with unbridled amounts of depth, with something new to take in every listen. Track after track it slowly draws you in with a gripping beat as it gradually finds an ethereal groove; constantly keeping its consistent flow of cerebral beats and thick, serene atmosphere all the way through. Beautiful melodies and palatable samples are meticulously cut up and assembled in fresh and ceaselessly spellbinding ways throughout the album, always keeping things interesting as it tranquilly moves from one beat to the next.

    It's an hour of haunting yet harmonious sounds with an air of foreboding mystery, without getting too dark or wavering its hypnotic intrigue–which honestly makes me question if DJ Shadow's "Entroducing..." is really deserving of its title as the pinnacle of Mo Wax. This pretty much sounds like what I envision James Levelle was reaching for most with Mo Wax: a new progression of heady, funky beat production that would still sound fresh for years to come. Though admittedly "Entroducing..." does have this quality as well, which seemingly even for Levelle has become his most darling of releases.

    Over twenty years later and it’s still a masterpiece - original, distinctive, beautifully composed and deep. Low Berth in particular stops me in my tracks.

    That should be the 2020 Covid-19 soundtrack. Welcome to the western civilisation decay.

    What a journey this album is ! Detroit's spirit. True undeground ambient vibe. U listen to every track and feel the common with these amazin guys. UR, Drexcia, D. May, Jeff Mills, Urban Tribe - this is an uncompromised techno with the seed of pain inside. Pain that heals the hearts of us.

    Some of the tracks on here are incredibly ahead of their time. 'Cultural Nimrod' and 'False Gods' sound like the kind of stuff that dubstep labels like DMZ and Tempa were putting out ten years later. Great album that has dated better than a lot of Mo Wax material.

    Criminally underrated - surprising given the list of contributors but perhaps explained by the lead roles of Ingram and Shake who remain two of the most overlooked Detroit producers out there, even with more exposure of late. There's some real nuanced depth and subtly devastating melancholy here. Worth checking the Japanese version for the stunning I.F.O. One of my favourites of all time.

    a little something from Detroit. A small but breathtaking list of guests (Carl Craig, Shake, and Moodymann) pass through a few moments of ideas and hand in some nice contributions.
