Terranova delivers their DJ Kicks fresh off the success of their smash 'Tokyo Tower' which has received such accolades as 'Awesome down-tempo jazzy meandering, sure to become a classic' - Select, 'Supremely relaxed' - NME, '97's most supremely indolent track, a brand new German sound' - I-D & 'A thoroughly enjoyable listening, superb' - DJ from the European press. As one would expect with a DJ Kicks release, Terranova went back into the studio with their final mix, added effects & keyboards over dubs. The result is another stellar DJ Kicks that's in a class by itself.
Another winning dj-kicks cd

"I found this cd filed under 'trip-hop' in the store. Well, I guess if you put some thought into it, this might be the least-worst place to put it. Don't expect Portishead or Morcheeba style trip hop, but more like 'dark mood big-beat' stuff. The selection of cuts is excellent. This CD has its own atmosphere since the first minute you put it on. Dark, but not depressing. Slow, but not boring. It will keep your mind busy, but not too much. This is a great cd to actually listen to.Other recommended DJ-Kicks: Smith & Mighty (my favourite), CJ Bolland, Claude Young."

"Yeah, I know the heading sounds cheesy. It's deliberate. Anyway, this album is a great one. Terranova do a fantastic job at remixing songs and tying them together into one cohesive package. I play this all day at work and people continually stop to ask me who this is. It's definitely a chill album and if you've heard "close the door," their full length album, you know the territory they're delving into. It's hip hop infused, dubby, K&D influenced music that's still unique and uncompromising in its sophistication and style. Whatever that means. It's just good."
A disappointing album in the DJ Kicks series

"well, i usually throw down reviews for albums that i feel other people should own...i'm always trying to hunt down new artists and always check the reviews before making any selection. unfortunately, the reason for this review is to keep people away from an unfulfilling album. I recently started getting into the whole downtempo/lounge thing and have been very impressed with the DJ Kicks series - both Thievery Corp and K&D's are nothing short of amazing, and the Nightmares on Wax - DJ Kicks is every bit of funk and hip-hop i could want on one cd. so i decided to make another purchase in this series - and went with this Terronova effort. i've regretted that purchase ever since - there is no consistent vibe on this cd, the music is all over the place. like the reviewer below, i listen to a lot of my cd's at work - however, when someone came over to see what i'm listening to and i was spinning terronova at the time, it was more like "what the hell is this junk?" - and i have to say i didnt have a good answer - because that's exactly what it is. besides the rap snipet from the flatbush project - this cd is not worth owning."
