Deep Concentration reinforces what you fundamentally love about hip-hop and then proceeds to flip your brain into hyperspace with some of the more progressive DJ compositions from some of the most respected turntablists around. West Coast DJ Cut Chemist (of Jurassic 5 and Ozomatli) reaches extra deep into the archives to build "Lesson 6," while DJs Swingsett and Wally find a hook in a loop of dripping water for the trippy "Centaurius Space Bass." Hip-hop purists will appreciate the X-Ecutioners' assault "A Turntable Experience" and the only MC cut, "Say What," by the lyrical marvels Latyrx. Some of the routines on Deep Concentration are sonically experimental while others, such as Prince Paul's ego trip, "DJ Prince Paul vs. the World," simply excel with excess. --Todd Levin

"You get a bit of every style in this package. The skillz amaze, but your butt still moves.The content alternates where the A sides (2LP in my case), are butt shakin' turntablist rave-ups and the B's are more ambient, jazzy, smoove stuff."

"Although a classic of which music genre is anyone's guess. Trip hop prehaps? There so much depth to this album it boggles the mind. I purchased this album over seven years ago when I was just starting to get into DJ Shadow. If you are a fan of Shadow you need this album. This is also what I would call a "bridge" album because the artists on it are tied to so many different music scenes....I guess that's mostly because of Cut Chemist. This is a definate "must" for anyone that enjoys turntable artistry."
