Hip to Manchester's red-hot club kids, the U.K.'s World Wide Message Tribe has become the holy herald in the burgeoning Christian dance scene with both street-cred and Jesus testimony. Coupled with their service work at schools and their outreach organization, the Message, WWMT has cultivated a hybrid of house, techno, hip-hop, and rap with the idea that if the booty shakes, the soul will follow. Adding a touch of ambient along with a disco streak to its glorious mess of praise, the Tribe (catalyst for the popular and critically acclaimed Jumping in the House of God compilations) took the 1999 Dove Award for Rap/Hip-Hop/Dance Album of the Year with Heatseeker. While not the caliber of, say, Photek or Roni Size, these soldiers of faith step to a buzzy break beat and provide an alternative to Goldie, Prodigy, and sexually explicit dance divas, giving young Christians something to rave about. --Paige La Grone

WAY WAY better than 'frantic'

"Everything WWMT has done previous to "frantic" is Awesome in my book. It is hard to find christian groups that do techno well or do it at all for that matter. The song Messiah is one of the best songs EVER!!! I wouldn't put Raze and WWMT in the same room as Raze is trying for the teen pop crowd and WWMT is more toward the Ravers. Their new one (frantik) is average, however the remixes are good. LAtely they seem to be trying for a more disco sound and dropping the techno which dissappoints me."

"This CD is brilliant and shows WWMT in all their glory. I live in Manchester, England (home of WWMT) and the latest album (Frantik) was released here about eight months ago. It is even better than this, if that is possible! I hope it gets released in America soon so you can all hear it.END"
