Subject: I have found a CD that I think you would enjoy
Audio Alchemy (Experiments in Beat Reconstruction)
Genres: Dance & Electronic, Jazz, Pop, Rap & Hip-Hop
A good intro to Bay Area trip-hop
(3 out of 5 stars)
"Contrary to what the CD's title and liner notes self-proclaim, this complation works best as a trip-hop piece rather than an excursion into true abstract electronica,(see the Mille Plateaux label.) A majority of the tracks are based on downtempo beats and noirish atmosphere. So basically any track with the phattest beat is a winner. Examples are the work by Bugs, Dj Wally & Swingsett and T-Cisco. Unfortunately, much of the music gets bogged down in redundancy, giving me an itchy finger on the "skip" button. But overall, compared to its weak sequel, this CD is a nice exhibit of takes on trip-hop."
