CD Reviews

Abstract hiphop?
the trickster | Leeds UK | 03/21/2000
(3 out of 5 stars)

"The growing world of abstract hiphop is producing some great material, but to qualify as hip hop, it must be hiphop, and that means it has to be real. Dj Cam's "Substances" seems to forget that at times, verging more towards ambient and triphop. While the fusion of arabic music,hiphop instrumentals and jazz produces some fresh results (check out "lost kingdom")underground hiphop headz might find the whole album too detached from the raw beats and street philosophy they're used to."
Entroducing... Substances
D. Thomas | Seattle, WA | 05/18/2006

"I found this CD when I was in England in the spring of 97. I never heard of DJ Cam, but I was into Shadow & Krush and thought I'd take a chance. Good move. Although this CD was not at the same level as "Entroducing," "Meiso," or "Milight," it was still a solid effort and showed Cam's production abilities. I remember poping in this disc while riding in my group's van and driving to Glostenbury. The beats on this disc were a mash-up of Hip-Hop and electronica, making a bridge between the two styles and pulling an audience from both groups.

I'm glad I got the CD when I did; because I honestly have never seen a copy of it again. Worth the 10 pounds I paid for it and this may about 6 years late, but to the guy that wanted to know what he sampled on the track "Twilight Zone." THE SCORE FROM INTERVIEW WITH A VAMPIRE."

"DJ Cam's effort on this was very mediocre. Although I must say I am highly impressed with artists such as Shadow and Krush. This guy just doesnt seem to click into anything. Not funky enough to be dancey, not trippy enough to be meditationally deep. It just sits in the middle as one of those definate back ground albums and I for one never expect music to be in the back ground so this will be heading stright back to the second hand shop I bought it from. Was worth seeing hes worth."
