4.0 out of 5 stars Dark, progressive beats from the Rider....... 23 Nov 2005
Format:Audio CD
Mysteries of Funk is the highly anticipated debut album from the legendary Grooverider. Released way back in 1998 it is a journey through dark, progressive beats and haunting melodies. To appreciate this style of drum & bass you have to truly understand the various shapes and forms the music can take. This isn't old school jungle (think Kenny Ken) or jump-up drum & bass (think Andy C) and it isn't the 'intelligent' sound that Goldie and Roni Size pioneered. This is Grooveriders' own special brand of dark progressive drum & bass that he does so well. The claim that 'Where's Jack The Ripper' is the best and only decent track is completely unfounded and untrue. Standout tracks are the funky 'Rainbows of Colour' and the amazingly deep and dark productions; 'Fly With Me' and 'Starbase 23'. At a push I would rate 'Starbase 23' as the best track. The eerie vocals, dark melodies and progressive beats make this an awesome track. It is true that many, many solo albums in the drum & bass world are dismally poor. There are some awful albums out there but this is not one of them. Those who TRULY appreciate the genre will appreciate this and those who don't, simply won't

at times very smooth,jazzy with a touch of trumpet and silky vocals, and at times dark and thumping that slap you around the face. Drum and bass that gets under your skin. A variety of styles of D&B, one of the best I have ever heard.

5.0 out of 5 stars Staggering 23 Sep 2002
Format:Audio CD
I have followed drum and bass since before it was called that.
I have many hundreds of albums but this is one of the most superb pieces of music that I have ever heard.
Disk 2 of this set is pure art and will still reveal new levels after hundreds of listens.
Truly dark in places, yet light and jazzy and vocal in others, with true FLOW and structure, without ever being over-worked.
Truly amazing; buy it now.
