The Future Sound Of London are electronic music's ultimate supergroup, and this is their unique masterpiece. Through the late 80s and early 90s the duo had produced under many aliases, riding on the back of Britain's new acid house / rave culture. In '92 they scored their biggest hit with Papua New Guinea, and in so doing landed a new record deal and a huge advance. This they ploughed into a new studio, and ditching commercial dance, came of age with one incredible ambient listening experience. From the sounds of the Amazon rain forest to far eastern tribal wails, it is laden with gorgeous samples from a world you'd imagine you're ancestors inhabited thousands of years ago. Yet as much as this is a work of the ancient and natural, it is also a modern and urban sounding album. From the pounding techno beats of the title track, to the bleep electronica of "Spineless Jelly" to the souring airplane samples on "Vit". This is music both for the city and the wilderness.
