5.0 out of 5 stars Converted... 13 April 2005
Format:Audio CD
A refreshingly thick slice of humming bass topped with more beats and breaks than you could ask for. Conversions is a great record that remains the unsung hero of mid-nineties electronic creativity. All tracks are coherent, original and beautifully melodic. Very boppy and up-tempo, and with one foot firmly planted in Drum & Bass, Conversions will always make heads turn and feet tap. K&D Live up to their reputation as seamless mixers, creators and producers on this release. Although Amazon have the original release date for this as 1999, it is in fact a much older record that precedes everything K&D have done bar G-stoned (I think!). This further underlines their reputations as cutting edge downbeat peddlers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Effortlessly good... 25 Jan 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Eclipsed by their equally brilliant "The K&D Sessions" and "DJ Kicks" albums, Kruder & Dorfmeister's first full length outing is not only in the same rarefied league but, arguably, better than either. Featuring a similar selection of truly excellent tracks, the difference here is that they mould them into a seamless hour-long sequence through a drivingly languid "drum & bass" backbeat that underpins the whole session. Brilliantly crafted, it pulls off the trick of being "cool", interesting and exciting at the same time while effortlessly carrying you along until you've completely forgotten when one track's finished and another's started... but no matter because by the end you'll be hitting the replay button, yet again. Highly addictive and thoroughly enjoyable, "Conversions" is an outstanding example of how to create a mix that's better than its constituent parts and another example of why K&D's reputation is totally justified.

5.0 out of 5 stars Give yourself a pat on the back! 6 Sep 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
You have stumbled on a rare gem! - Conversions is funky-bouncy-chilled-cool-groovy-very-groovy ! - and seriously obscure - as can be seen by a disc released in Feb 1999 only now having a first review!.. But DON'T be put off by the rather peculiarly tasteless, almost 80's-style cover - this is a highly involving mixture of dub mixing, more drum&bass-y bits than most K&D choices and just plain GOOD choons!
Buy it - you won't regret it, not even a little bit!
plus you get to pull it out and say "has anyone seen this one?" and be amused by all the puzzled faces...

5.0 out of 5 stars For Me, this is K&D's finest 1 Oct 2009
By RETRO
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'll get straight to the point, After buying both DJ Kicks and The K&D Sessions along with this CD, and after listen to all of them many times, This CD raised itself head and shoulders above the other two, as excellent as they both are, remarkably, Conversions is just that little bit darker and deeper.

My one suggestion though, get yourself a decent bit of listening kit or if using headphones, Id recommend a nice pair of Sennheiser IE8's ( ensure you use earbuds that suit your ears!! ) as some of the bass on this CD will literally make your vision blur, Oh yes.

So, I've been listening to this CD for nearly a year now, almost non stop and I 'still' cannot put it back in it's case, not bad for a CD that came out some 13years ago !

Go on, Buy it, you really won't regret it :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Stellar 20 Oct 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Very different from their previous releases, Conversions further highlights the true skills of these two masters. Because the tracks chosen for this set are much more uptempo, it is not as accessible as the k&d sessions or, more notably, their dj kicks set. Nevertheless, the music produced in this set is just as comfortable as that on the earlier releases, despite the speed of the breaks which lay the music's foundation. Although they produce a vastly different result than mu-ziq, k&d on this set experiment with layering divergent tempos upon one another much like Paradinas does - speed underneath and softer melodies in the foreground. The result in both a surprise and a revelation: a truly mellowing jungle set with elements of jazz and ambient interspersed throughout. Likely one of the 10 best discs I own.

4.0 out of 5 stars K&D's classic symphony of jungle, orchestrated beautifully. 27 Aug 1999
By jangarang - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
In the gallery of music, the K&D sessions are masterful works on display while this album, Conversions, is the opening night party only true art purveyors can attend. Although Conversions is widely available, tracks like "Find Me" by Skanna and "The Lick" by Earl Grey are not. Hearing them joined in K&D fashion is a true privilege in many ways, simply because the most elusive aspect of K&D is a way to aptly define their sensual Viennese blend of jungle. The track selection on this mix is wonderful, starting with lighter, surface-stepping tracks like "Dat's Cool," then moving onto genre-defining and all too timeless classics like PFM's "One and Only" and "Find Me," and ending finally with deeper, bottom-heavy tracks soaking in ambient wealth. Each one highlights varying degrees of melody and rhythm, some jazzier than others, some more dramatic with percussion. The elusive beauty, however, harbors in K&D's ability to effortlessy glide the listener along each orchestrated bar of these tracks, gently pulling the listening experience on top of the high notes and then dropping it into an infinite undercurrent of depth. The ride is stitched seamlessly by K&D, the experience worthy of endless repetition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Phenomenal drum & bass that rivals K&D Sessions. 1 Jun 2000
By Stephen Caratzas - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Okay, I know that sounds like blasphemy, but Conversions is truly amazing. Kruder & Dorfmeister veer from their downtempo genius to deliver a showcase of superb drum & bass that rivals the best stuff in the genre.
Though nary a weak cut on the disc, two deserve special mention: 'One and Only' with its loping, graceful bassline (check out LTJ Bukem's mix on "Logical Progressions" ) and Count Basic's 'Speechless'. I don't know if K&D use samples, a drum machine, or a live kit, but the latter features THE BEST drum sounds I've ever heard.
