Product Description


John B's Visions consists of twenty tracks split into two CD's. The first has a distinct jazz inference. Unlike recent output from Blame or 4 Hero, John B keeps the live instrumentation bound within traditional drum and bass structures. This occasionally lends a thinness to the music, a number of tracks held together solely by the percussion as the melodics wheel away, these weaknesses dissolve within high points such as "Central Dogma" and "Reflections". The second CD utilises a more futuristic environment, firing compressed breaks into driving orchestration and sub-space atmospherics. The Visions concept hails a significant moment for DJ SS's imprint, deviating from the more traditional D&B format and with John B dealing with both Organic and Synthetic styles competently, this album comes highly recommended. -- Kingsley Marshall

5.0 out of 5 stars stunning... 8 Oct 2008
Format:Audio CD
absolutly stunning D and B...

found this when i was younger and lent it to somebody who never returned it.

Johnn B was never given the recognition he desereved for creating this album. After a couple of listens it gets deep under the skin and around 10 years on still sounds fresh.

The first disc is a superb and very impressive blend of Jazz and Drum & Bass for those Sunday afternoon sessions when you want to appreciate music with intelligence. Disc two is a D & B romp of immense proportions, never so hard it frightens but hard enough to give you whiplash from head dancing.

5.0 out of 5 stars DURHAM 14 Feb 2000
By cinnamondelight - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
well, i have to confess that i may be a little bias in this review seeing as he was my frined at durham university. i remember the nights he used to play at the college bops and i knew he would be heading for success. his talent for sound is incredible. Influenced by every sound he hears, Visions is an incredible compilation of his talents yet you aint seen nothing yet! if you love this then you will devour his new double CD "Catalyst". i love how he combines the jazz cafe with the drum and bass and the contrast between organic and synthetic is just totally demonstrative of his dexterity for rhythm and sound. the best thing is, however, his whole personality and being comes out in the music, as he uses every viable source available, including his own super sexy smooth voice in samba (on Catalyst). enjoy all and just remember, me ga kirei da na! his favourite phrase in japanese!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best drum and bass cd for your money. 22 Aug 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is one of the greatest drum and bass records i have ever heard. It should get the respect it deserves. It is not a rap/hip hop title, and whoever wrote the review talking about his voice is confused as well. They are probably confusing this artist with Jon B. the lame r&b guy from the U.S. This is an amazing record for anyone who appreciates jazz, funk, techno, or drum and bass. A truly profound album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jazz, Jungle, & Bass: A moving musical experience. 28 Sep 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This music is incredible. The artist begins with some nice jazz sounds, then comes with some excellent jungle and hip-hop beats, taking the listener from smiling relaxation to dancing. The bass is heavier than anything I have ever heard.
5.0 out of 5 stars Johb B opened doors for me and does to this day 8 April 2011
By D. Lanning - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
John B is a character all in his own - this album is a piece of genius.

Allthough the production on this lbum is aged - it is timeless, precise, imaginative, and most importantly it boasts a charismatic eagerness that defines John B to this day. His love of this genre and his focus on prioneering new sounds and subgenres of Drum and Bass continues to this day.

If you ever get a chance to see John B live, run. You won't regret it.

Also - check out his podcast as it is full TOP NOTCH quality. Share the love of Drum and Bass. [...]
