Living somewhere between the future jazz of (mostly electronic) artists like Amon Tobin and James Hardaway and the groovy vibe of more mainstream acid jazz, Duboniks find themselves chillin' on a very hep street. Propelled by (of course) fast 'n' fluid vibe playing as well as flute, horns, keys, and a liquid rhythm section, Duboniks also lay on well-placed samples, sultry vocals, and limber percussive touches. Remarkably fresh and forward looking, Duboniks are crossing genres with astonishing deftness and precision. Best of all, they're keeping it funky. --S. Duda

""On The Vibe" is without doubt the single best Acid Jazz purchase I have ever made. The album demonstrates a remarkable ability by the group to blend the entire jazz party into one album. It's fast tempo songs like "Return of Mark Skids", and "Nite and Day" show how both live instruments and techno samples can be married with style and precision. For after hours, "Don't Get Pushy", "On The Vibe", and "Drunk on Something" utilize sultry vocals and hynotic "Vibe" to mellow you out. All in all, this album demonstrates everything Acid Jazz has to offer, and a lot that you haven't heard before. Once you buy it you will either search for others like it, or pray for Duboniks to come out with a new one."
Wonderful addition to my Jazz/Rock/Funk collection!

"A terrific fusion of jazz with the latest in contemporary music. This CD has a nice mix of innovative covers and new material. It is a great CD to fit in where my old fusion breakthrough recordings left off, recordings such as Headhunters and the original Return to Forever. I purchased this CD as part of an effort to update my collection after a dirth of purchases when my best CD source went out of business (thank you Amazon for filling that void). My only complaint --- I want more."
