Overview

While Kruder & Dorfmeister remained unwilling to release a "proper" album even several years after their breakout, The K&D Sessions is proof positive they're still doing what they do best -- making the most blissfully blunted music the world has ever heard. The two-disc set is first and foremost a K&D mix album, to add to the two they'd already released. It's also a remix collection, though; each of the 21 tracks are reworkings (by Kruder, Dorfmeister, or both) for artists including Roni Size, Lamb, David Holmes, Bomb the Bass, Depeche Mode, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Sofa Surfers, and Count Basic. As could be expected, The K&D Sessions is earthy, downtempo and acid-based, even moreso than previous mix albums by the pair. The pinging vocal samples that echo through the duo's remix of "Bug Powder Dust" by Bomb the Bass prove amply that Kruder & Dorfmeister have a better handle on 21st-century dub techniques than any other producers out there, and the impossibly deep beats on almost every track simply couldn't have been recorded by any other act. Yes, it's a bit of a shame that the pair still hadn't released an album of own-productions, but with (re)mix albums this stunning and accomplished, Kruder & Dorfmeister hardly needed one to gain respect.

well i gotta say it was well worth the money.I heard a few mp3s of this online and I was very interested so I bought it just the other day and i'm not dissappointed at all. its an impeccably put together remix album I loved the Depeche Mode remix of ''useless'' and the remix of Lambs ''Trans fatty acid'' as well as Roni Size's ''Heroes'' right in the begining of the first disc. On the second disc david holmes ''gone'' its all really good .i would definitely recommended it, especially to trip hop fans or any one that would just want to mellow out.

This is a great album. Very downtempo (slow and dreamy) and great to chill to. But one of the most interesting things about this album set is that once you have listened to it a few times and know the songs, you will start hearing it everywhere you go. Hair salons, bars, restaurants, before concerts, everywhere. Absolutely everywhere. This album has been in the background everywhere in hip places for the last two years. It's an interesting phenomenon.

This is a fantastic double-disc set which manages to pack loads of coolness into a sound which, as another reviewer points out, is often heard in stores. Their mixing is subtle and seamless, not indulging in the hotdogging style of harder mixers like the Prodigy who make their changes highly noticeable. Enjoy!

A friend of mine played the track ''Speechless'' for me, and I noticed there was a long trumpet solo featuring Maynard Ferguson on the track. I started looking into buying this album because I like the music. One thing really bothers me, I haven't seen any credits to Maynard Ferguson. K&D has taken samples of his music and put it in their song, but he's not on the credits list on this page. I have heard this album and I think it's great - but give credit where credit is due!
