A divine fusion of jazz, funk and soul with elements of drum and bass.

A magical debut from dub and bass legends Roni Size & Reprazent. This album received the Mercury Prize Awards in 1997, and helped popularize an obscure genre that had its short epithome during that decade. It follows IDM greats like Aphex Twin and Altechre, but still manages to find its own way amidst the many electronic acts that were inhabiting the scene at the time. Until today it holds up quite well, even with its lenghty tracklisting. A must for electronic aficionados.
