5.0 out of 5 stars Innovating showcase. 25 Mar 2010
Format:Audio CD
The more I listen to this work the more I realise that, in it's own way, this is a small masterpiece.
Kode9 is a ground-breaker within Dubstep because of his Hyperdub magazine and record label, he introduced the world to Burial and has produced a string of his own productions some in collaboration with dread poet The Spaceape.
The third in the showcase Dubstep Allstars series sees this Dub/Poetry synergy taken a stage further; the mix launches with Kode9's own '9 Samurai'- it's dusty horns and hoover bass set the tone of the mix straight off. This however rapidly suegues into Pressure's Grime track 'Dey A-Bomb We' with it's 8-bar structure and Warrior Queen's angry, spitting flow almost as if to point out the relationship between the two genres. Following this The Spaceape begins his own dread riddims, his Rasta cool contrasting with the intensity of the previous tracks' vocal. The rhymes he employs will be familiar to anyone who owns Kode9's album 'Memories Of The Future' as they are essentially the same as those used there; only here, as the mix progresses, Spaceape's voice becomes looped and overdubbed like another dub instrument- any sense whirled away in the flux of dub and overdub. This fits with the immersive, darkening tone of Kode9's selection which leads down hidden, late-night pathways in the company of such scene luminaries as Skream, Digital Mystikz and D1. The mix rounds off with Burial's claustrophobic, tribal 'Prayer'.
I rate this album very highly as I think Kode9 has genuinely attempted to innovate with this work- to take two sounds and combine them to produce something that is greater than the sum of its parts. Well worth owning and repeat listening.

5.0 out of 5 stars Different but great 29 Aug 2011
Format:Audio CD
Ive heard a lot of mixed opinions about this cd, some love it, some hate it. The main gripe being spaceapes lyrics over most tracks. I find this a welcome addition to the mix though, his voice melts into the background on the second half of the mix where the tracks are at their heaviest. Great mixes, even greater tracks which are mostly dubplates combine to make this another classic. Love it or hate it, its still one of the heaviest in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars unique style 10 Jun 2008
By Brandan Robbins - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
After reading the review someone left on here I had to write a little piece. The 1 start given by the other reviewer is rubbish. Kode 9's mixing and track selection is enought to give it 3 stars. And to hate on Space Ape is rubbish as well. Space APe has a very abstract flow...Its hard to understand his lyrics...But its much like Tricky...If you like Tricky you will like Space Ape. Its a matter of opinion...But I think the dark abstract vibe on this album is unique...I have never heard another album like this. I won just about ever dubstep album that has been released...and nothing is like this one. Props to Kode 9 and Space Ape for creating a unique vibe!

1.0 out of 5 stars space ape ruins this mix. 24 April 2007
By ginsu - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
When I first heard space Ape on the Burial CD, I thought he was tight. I love LKJ and that last poets technophobic schtick is played but better than coked up get money raps. I was so geeked I bought the KOde 9 Space Ape CD - which is total garbage. (Space ape talks the same mush over everything. He uses the same lyrics over and over and over. ANd the lyrics just arent that great. It cant be that hard to write that stuff. KOde 9s beats sound like cheap plastic throw aways.)

Now this CD, Dubstep Allstars, Vol. 3, has some tight dub plates. Kode 9's 9 Samurai is evil. (hmmmm - space ape isnt on THAT one) but when space ape starts talking over everything you realize AGAIN hes using his same old lyrics. and theyre lame. and he talks SLOOOOOOOOOOOOW through delay so his stupid voice is crudding up everything. and you cant hear the awesome dub plates underneath. I love the other dubstep comps but this one is garbage. death to space ape.
5.0 out of 5 stars ear crush plus poetics 27 April 2009
By Owl C - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
SO I just installed some huge speakers in my car and this is the best album to annoy the neighbors with. The beats are heavy, no frills (I do agree Kode9's other albums are very sucky but this one bangs) and Spaceapes lyrics are spliced up with enough variety that the redundancy shouldn't get to you this time around. There's like 26 short tracks and roughly half of them are solid beatdowns, the rest are decent too, no weak synths or singy rubbish. Maybe if you listen mostly on yer ipod then yeah these tracks aren't given justice but if you have mad bass this album kills.

1.0 out of 5 stars Send Space Ape back to his home planet please 22 Aug 2008
By Shannon W. Daily - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The beats are decent. The MC is total garbage and pretty much ruins the album. If it was just the music without the whack, mumbling, incoherent MC it would be an all right album. I would suggest getting the actual albums of some of the artists and not bothering with this mix.
