The incessant flower-power idealism may be hard to take, especially from a duo calling themselves Sunshine and Moonbeam, but on their second album San Francisco's Dubtribe Sound System put an imaginative and infectious spin on the contemporary club soundtrack. Opening with the sound of disco strings, Latin rhythms, and deep, magnificently detailed electronic grooves, the duo mines a wealth of dance-floor styles for a seamless reaffirmation of the spirit and the mind. It's only when things get too preachy--as on the inimical "Holler!"--that the group sacrifices its positive vibrations. --Aidin Vaziri

"I am a DJ on the weekends (house, world beat, tribal...etc) and I gotta tellya, from the first beat to the last, this is ONE HOT disc! For me the best tracks are 1, 2, 3, 7,8, and 12! This disc is just jumpin with tribal beat, house, and a very very slick mix of everything in between. The tracks merge, there is no stopping point or a starting point for each track...it just all flows together in one very long trancendental groove trip. Don't mishear this review as, "Oh its just another trippy, over produced trance beat". Its not like that at all. I first heard this disc at DanceJam in Berkeley and it blew my socks off! Its now part of my stable of music to play for my grooves. Get it! Own it! Pull the shades down if you have to just so you can dance to this, you won't be sorry about buying this disc, at all!"

"This is a lovely creation of some truly beautiful tracks. A clever mix of latin, house, and some killer grooves. Put this one in your CD tray, dim the lights, and look out...it'll floor you."

"I've heard great things about DSS, and that's obviously the case here too. A word of warning must be made for purists, however. As nice as it is to get a somewhat less than subliminal self-help seminar (YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL...) in music, I'd prefer more music and less shmoozing on the mike. I'd give a nod of respect to the bilingual inclusion si las palabras no fueran tan tontas.[too poppy] The stink of disco is also rife, making it hard to groove with a clear conscience. This is a unique act, undoubtedly more interesting live than the average loopers, but they do not excell on any particular level."
