"Various forms of techno and ambient-dub have been around for afew years now, but new artists keep coming along and finding new waysto combine sounds. Darwin Chamber was best known for his contributions to collections like *White Trash Gangsta Trance*. Those two tracks, "www.dubmarine.com" and "Meridian" are reproduced here, along with new musical explorations. One possible comparison is to Orbital, but Darwin Chamber is more restrained. Of special note is the use of samples. Some techno artists go absolutely crazy with them; with Darwin Chamber there are never too many and never too few. Except for "Ghetto" (a tape construction which opens the CD) and the trancelike "Isolation," the samples mostly build bridges between tracks. I think this CD gets better as it goes along. Those who liked "www . . . " and "Meridian" will love "Equator 1" and "Equator 2." Finally, "Isolation," the knockout track, puts it all together. This track leaves the dancebeat aside and uses a sample to create a mood of quiet menace which will stay with you long after the track ends. You won't go wrong with *Ghettoelectro*, which also contains CD-ROM software allowing those with the right equipment to do their own remixing and retooling, allowing still more musical experiences. Highly recommended to the "chill-out" crowd!"

"Bumped into those guys accidentally, and since I can't stop spinning it. This is the pearl in the electronic garbage of today."
Laid Back Techno

"If your favorite Kraftwerk songs are "Neon Lights" and "Computer Love", then buy this album. Darwin Chamber has created a techno album with at times haunting melodies that could just go on forever. Even when he's upbeat, it's laidback."
