Album Review
Reviewed 2009-04-27
Elements of d&b/jungle, dubstep, a bit of house too. Mostly instrumental, mostly fairly relaxed. First two tracks are a little more traditional d&b sounding, more upbeat. All good & FCC clean.

1. Ambience, slightly racing d&b beat, but light enough that there's still a chill dubstep feel. Some house-y synths and a vocal sample too. Drums drop out with about a minute left. (6:16)
2. More driving jungle/d&b, but with simpler drums. Strong low synth enters. More prominent vocals. (5:34)
*3. Much more sparse timpani beat (Think "Human Behaviour" by Bjork). More dubstep I guess too. Vocal samples and later vocoder vocals that sound like "Contact" from RENT (?) (6:56)
*4. Max Tundra doing d&b and dubstep at first, but then it chills out and gets more like Bonobo, then more like the beginning, then a mix of the two. Ends about 0:15 left. (6:37)
*5. Midtempo chill dubstep/house with synths like The Knife. (7:22)
