Now, I have to say that I can't beleive that more people haven't reviewed this single. Either that or the reviews were so terrible that Amazon hasn't posted them.
I don't believe that can be the case.
The best way to describe this track is to ask you to picture a scientific research team in the 1940s going out to Papua New Guinea and sitting at the edge of a clearing at some tribal event. They had a reel to reel tape recorder with them, in the humid conditions, and just layed a microphone on the ground out of everyone's way. The resultant recording is what we hear.
I am not saying that Papua New Guinea is typical of that region's indigenous music, but as dance music goes, I don't think anyone will ever top it. The reason I love the tune so much is because of what it represents. It shows the innovative, creative, ground breaking, original ability that Future Sound Of London have.
For those few that don't know, the tune begins with tribal chants and PNGesque sounds. Then in comes a cut up break beat loop.
So far, outstanding.
Then they go and do what almost anywhere else would be a major no no in a seriously good original dance track. They drop in the archetipal James Brown sample. However, all of a sudden, the two loops together transport us to that clearing back in the 1940s. It has to be the best use of a James Brown sample I have ever heard.
If you like quality dance music, even though it is at present 12 years old, you will have at least heard of Papua New Guinea. The only bad thing I can say about the tune is that it sounds relatively muffled. It would be interesting to hear it in glorious hi fi Dolbycolour, but that's what gives it that perfect finish. The muffle makes it a genuine "research field recording".

Anyone who has not heard Papua New Guinea must either be fairly young or have had their head in the ground for the past decade. Progressive house from way back when (when it was more soulful and less techy and sterile), this is an aetherial track with a solid break and one of the most euphoric riffs I have ever heard. And the mixes are damn fine too!

Got this on LP a while back, and can honestly say it's been one of my most popular 'end of nighters'. This 2001 release comes in 2 versions; the green cover, as pictured on here, has all five mixes. However, for a bit less, you can get the yellow and black cover version which has just 3 of the mixes, but they're the 3 best!

Though the original still stands the test of time for being one of those songs we all lost it too, the 2001 'Hybrid Mix' is up there with it. It can't be fair to hark back and only rely on old material for being so great - this modern Hybrid Mix adds a more cutting edge and euphoric sound to what is, a scarcely changed mix. While the LP/CD may have the others, I don't think the Hybrid can be beaten. And for a DJ like myself, the slightly more forced break-beat is much easier to beat-match when mixing!

This is a superb collection of songs from one of the greatest dance track of all time. The fact that it has the original adds to its value, as rarely do we see now singles of the originals. 5/5

Future Sound of London delivered in a big way with this tune - a pure electro crossover encompassing dance, ambient and dub, combining with an ethereal vocal - this track resonates into the soul

FSOL are at their finest in this pure emotion piece. If you don't know this track, I recommend you let yourself be taken places by the pulsating bass line in the track (sampled from Meat Beat Manifesto). The sampled vocals (Lisa Gerrard) are really well chosen, adding a lot of "evocative-ness" to the mix. A track to dream to which no one with an interest in electronic music should miss, and also a track that way trascends the habitually short life of a club track, persisting in your mind for years and years.

Ok, maybe there are a lot of sampled things here, but the ability to combine these elements so succesfully is the mark of FSOL's crafmanship.
