Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Download This is the brainchild of prolific producer IG Culture working under the pseudonym New Sector Movements. Starting his career with hip-hop duo Dodge City Productions almost a decade ago, IG has more recently tuned into the merits of a sound becoming increasingly known as phusion. Taking reference from 1960/70s fusion pioneers such as Herbie Hancock, Roy Ayers and George Duke, as well as the funk and soul sounds of artists like Stevie Wonder, his aim is to update these classic vibes for today's modern dance floor. Joining artists like 4 Hero's Dego McFarlane, Bugz In The Attic, Modaji, Phil Asher, King Britt and Jazzanova in the quest for future soul music, IG's NSM project is one of the most accomplished takes on the sound. This debut is a beautifully balanced mix of jazz-funk grooves, soulful vocals, busted up beats (no straight four to the floor here, though the mood is often as uplifting as good quality soul house) and warm analogue sounds. In terms of dance music, it's one of the most musically exciting and highly original records to emerge for a very long time. It might take a while to get used to its eclectic vibe, but when you do the rewards are startlingly high. Start downloading--now! --Paul Sullivan

5.0 out of 5 stars Future soul music for the space odyssey 11 July 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
DJ Gilles Petterson once described IG Culture (the New Sector Movements head honcho) as a "bona fide genius", and this he most certainly is. To see his name on a record is a mark of quality, however he never sticks to one formula, his style is always changing and developing but the music is always soulful and deep.
"Download This" is also a showcase for a whole range of talent, including Kaidi Tatham, a don on the keys and an excellent producer is his own right. The amazing vocalists Bembe Segue & Eska who are a vital element of the New Sector sound and two of the UK's best keep secrets. The sickly soul tones of Frank McComb of Buckshot fame graces the opening Anthem & The Sun, and the beautiful vocals of Julie Dexter can be witnessed on 'Free As'. Victor Davis an excellent singer song writer takes a back seat but adds some guitar and bass to a number of the tracks. Listening to the LP it reminds me of a vintage jazz/funk LP, the whole sound is made up of a co-operation of talented musicians and you know this is just the start of a number of classic albums from these people to come.
Those that are already down with IG Culture's sound will not be disappointed, and any newcomers to the sound will certainly be won over by his style. The tracks are more soul and song based than the Jazz/Funk dancefloor classic 12" singles that came out on People Records. But what we have here is a complete long player, that in the future will be one of those records that your kids will be searching for and paying a high price tag for the pleasure. It's hard to compare the New Sector Movement's music to any others, that wouldn't really do it justice, just buy and experience future soul music for the space odyssey.

2.0 out of 5 stars Misses the mark 1 Oct 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was disappointed by this album and found it annoyingly experimental. Simply using broken up beats doesn't make music challenging, interesting or innovative. The vocals tracks and their lyrics are weak, and on the whole the album is a disjointed affair.

5.0 out of 5 stars Monstrously intense and incredibly ahead of its time 3 Jan 2004
By Scott Woods - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Calling New Sector Movement's sound "ahead of its time" is something of a misnomer: the arrangements and playing of this group draws from jazz fusion while tipping its West London derby to R&B and drum & bass. Producer/percussionist I.G. Culture leads this incredibly diverse unit of players and singers through a massively plotted pool of grooves that shake you up with their production: you may literally find yourself scared that an album this good could go so unheralded.
Despite the apparent influences of this record and its producer, none of it sounds even remotely lifted. This is the type of music that Herbie Hancock, George Duke or Lonnie Liston Smith would have still been making if they hadn't had a bite of commercial success and opted to stick to their fusion guns. The music here is both traditionally-minded and entirely fresh at the same time on every track, period.
Appearances from Frank McComb, Julie Dexter, Eric Appapoulay and a slew of others ground the album in a hip-deep swath of funk and two-step beats that somehow melds the 70s tone with a contemporary set of production values almost entirely unseen in the current industry. The original version of "Sun" (the version that appears on Vikter Duplaix's "DJ Kicks" compilation is a remix) still has a fast and furious beat, but is embued with so much more soul than its American counterpart it's a wonder the remix ever got released. "Two Sides" stomps a mudhole in your midsection with its sheer rhythmic audacity and Eska's vocal gymnastics which seem to leap right out of George Duke's "Master of the Game" LP with an incredibly self-assured authority, and well-earned at that. The title track "Download This" starts and stops on a dime without losing its steam.
Pretty much nothing could steer the songs here out of their sheer impressiveness on every front.
The songs are at longer-than-average lengths, most clocking in at over 5 minutes to allow the arrangements to breathe and to offer as much ear candy as possible per pound...and with all of the George Duke-flavored riffs and Caron Wheeler-inspired vocal swirls floating around this record, there's more candy here than there is in the Trick-or-Treat bowl next to the front door at Milton Hershey's house on Halloween. This icing, coupled with the cake of the hectic rhythms throughout ensures a record that most people will be drawn to, but they won't know why. Of course, anyone who's familiar with any of the influential forms of this band's sound (fusion, UK soul, break beat) will be thoroughly engaged from beginning to end.
Sure, we know that we couldn't even begin to have expected such a record to find its way to a radio station in the current climate of the music industry in this day and age, but after listening to this incredible album it will chill you to your bone to think about how robbed we all are by the current art brokers at any given moment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Soul and wonder 9 Dec 2001
By Vitor Manuel dos Reis Machado - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
New Sector Movements perform in "Download This" as a super soul modern band.
We may remind the most brilliant times of a Stevie Wonder and wonder of how wonderful could have been to have this sound 30 years back in time. He's here now and it really gives us a notion of a time without a specific era.
"Download This" goes to the seventies, comes to this century and keeps moving. A great sound to experience. A record straight to the history of soul music.
