Baby Mammoth are arguably one of downbeat dance music's best kept secrets. They've been knocking out quality laid-back breaks and blissed-out beats since the mid-1990s, operating in the shadow cast by fellow Hull stoners Fila Brazillia. The duo's low-key approach has resulted in an almost total lack of critical praise--something that their music so obviously deserves. No doubt this will change with the release of Best Foot Forward, a strong and varied summary of the duo's career to date. There's a lot to admire here, from the sleepy breaks of "Slipping Jigsaws" and "The Devil Lies" to the delicate dancefloor moves of "Tasty Maloney" and "Mysterious Muses". Blissenden and Burdall are at their best when laying bright melodies and slick jazz guitars over crisp breakbeats and dubby basslines. It's a formula that produces intelligent chill-out music with a strong dancefloor conscious--something rarely achieved by conventional downtempo acts.--Matt Anniss

Baby Mammoth have been doing the downtempo/funk gig as long as anyone, avoiding even the brief flickers of spotlight that occasionally hit Britain's Hull-based Pork Recordings other notables, Fila Brazilla. After six years and as many albums (and numerous remixes) it's finally time for recognition and credit, and what better way than with a mix disc culling hits from past work.
Slow-burning grooves, a sublime sense of stoner funk, old soul samples, and a light sense of playfulness, it's all here for smooth consumption on those lazy, hazy days. Highlights include "Dark Goggles" where shuffle jazz meets X-Files, and the gentle, percolating "Hoodwinked." Or perhaps I should mention the scuzzy jazz of "Tasty Maloney," or the - well, I could go on. Sure there's a dip or two, "Slipping Jigsaws" belongs in b-movie soundtrack purgatory, but that's the price you pay for an album reaching beyond simple navel-gazing.
Distribution, like their press coverage, is spotty at best, but sofa spotters wanting a slice of heaven should dig around for this one. You want to hear what the album-hunters are all talking about, don't you?

It is probably worth noting in the first instance that this is a selection of Baby Mammoth tunes from each of the 5 albums that went before it i.e. 10000 Years Beneath the Street, One...Two...Freak, Bridging Two Worlds, Another Day at the Orifice and Swimming.

It is a decent selection of tunes - fairly consistent if you're looking for downtempo, trip-hop, nu-jazz style chilled beats! I probably would've chosen a different selection of tunes myself. My advice? Seek out their albums for the complete Baby Mammoth experience.

Groove incarnate... 20 Oct 2004
By sanspotash - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Easily one of the best downbeat albums available. I've owned it for awhile and am still amazed at how quickly it takes me in every time I have it on rotation. If you like esl, if you enjoy K & D and all of their projects, then this is your next purchase. yo
