Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

One thing's for sure: you won't have heard a hip-hop album quite like Hinterland before. Aim man Andy Turner recorded this--the follow-up to his excellent debut album, Cold Water Music--in a private studio on the sleepy Barrow-In-Furness seafront, a hundred miles from the bustling hip-hop underground of Manchester where he made his name. Rolling elements of vintage soul and classic Bacharach-style songwriting into its grand hip-hop design, Hinterland pulls out wild cards a-plenty. "The Girl Who Fell Through The Ice" finds Turner loops a flourish of violins and frosty synths, as longtime Aim collaborator Kate Rogers wrapping her tonsils around a chill tale of a doomed love affair. The upbeat "No Restriction" revives A Tribe Called Quest's daisy-age blueprint, with guesting rap crew Souls Of Mischief offering rhymes of a mischievously English bent: "We mean biz'/ You won't believe this/ We're in Buckingham Palace droppin' beats with Queen Liz". And "Good Disease" strays right off the hip-hop map: a slick four minutes of R&B-tinted lounge music, it features a unexpected falsetto-high cameo from ex-Baby Bird man Stephen Jones that bafflingly, is one of this commendable record's high points. It's not for those that like their hip-hop raw, but Hinterland is a very welcome addition to the traditional rap terrain.--Louis Pattison

Take all your preconcieved perceptions of hip hop, tear 'em up and throw 'em away! Andy Turner (aka Aim) a former indie rock loving anorak has redefined the genre. In many ways this is car boot sale hip hop in which obscure samples are snatched from old vinyl and put together in a breath takingly beautiful way.
To be honest, "Hinterland" is closer to the blissful downtempo moments of Air rather than the normal raw, in-your-face attitude of hip hop. Whereas his "Cold Water Music" debut was much closer to the hip hop blueprint with an emphasis on rap collaborations, here he concentrates more on his moody but beautiful instrumentals.
As a result, when vocalists are sparingly used the impact is much more dramatic and welcome. Again, Kate Rogers is in fine form on the heartbreakingly gorgeous "The Girl Who Fell Through The Ice". Anyone familar with her "Sail" track on "Cold Water Music" will know what to expect...but this is even more moving. Stephen Jones and Diamond D also contribute some fantastic vocals. In fact, the only vocal track that slightly disappoints is Turner's own sung "A Twilight Zone" which seems a little out of context with the feel of the album.
However, I personally feel Turner is at his best when concentrating on the more mellow and soulful instrumentals with "What Do People Do All Day", "Fall Break", "Linctus" and "From A Seaside Town" all being paticular high points.
"Hinterland" really is a beautiful and moving album that you just want to curl up with in front of a warm fire on a winters afternoon. It mat only be February but I'll stick my neck out and say this could already be one of the albums of 2002.

Listen, I don't care what you call this, some say hip hop, some say trip hop others say chillout, lounge, breakbeat. It doesn't matter as it is just well produced music. So, I wouldn't even compare it to anything mainstream, or anything else as it houses so much more than a mere attempt at general genre. What this is is UK beat based music and we are the finest creators of this music in the world. I think this is a fine album. If you are looking for other great UK beat based music try....

This AIM album is a must have in the collection though so no matter what you do grab this one!

There are many more great UK producers that have a funky edge yet comprises of darkness, melody and touches on the original sounds of the late 80's early 90's. The point is, this is a UK genre so to speak where we are the masters of such wonderful surreal beat based music.

Aim's first album, termed as coffee table hip-hop, definitely carved out a distinctive sound for the man from the West coast of England. Hinterland builds upon this with some sweet beats, merging all kinds of styles. The song with Kate Rogers is poigant modern soul, Souls of Mischief rip it like the natural born emcees that they are, and their is a phat performance by Diamond. The rest of the album is made up of sweet samples and loops to bounce to - if you haven't listened to AIM before your in for a total treat, because it is all good!

What is all this speak of hinterland being inadequate? True, cold water music is a hard album to follow up, but i think hinterland is a match for it in all aspects. The vocal tracks on offer are brilliant, kate rodgers latest contribution far better than her last effort on cold water music while stephen jones delivers a brilliant falsetto to make a beautiful song out of good disease. Equally, the rap offerings shine with diamond d and the souls of mischief providing tight rhymes - all this over the usual dope beats AIM so often provides. Admittedly some of the instrumentals do drag on a little but that is not enough to convince me this album deserves no less than five stars.

This album has a bit of everything while still remaining true to its roots.Its blend of soulful hiphop has been around for a decade or more in the small town where the ablum was created and Aim cut his DJing teeth.Finally its becoming more mainstream thanks to Zero7 , Avalanches and Aim himself people are starting to listen.I both dread and look forward to hearing one of his singles in the charts..it will happen soon. Crongatulations to Aim and the rest of the team for a quality album that is definitely a grower.

i am a big fan of aim, particularly his early 12's and the album cold water music.
sadly, hinterland is, for me sorely lacking the elements that made his previous music so good. gone is the atmosphere of c.w.m. gone also is the big sound of his more up-beat hip-hop tunes such as loop dreams, and the simplicity and feeling of their brilliantly worked loops.
i feel that what we are left with lacks purpose, and seems to wander off, ending up sounding like a film score rather than a collection of separate tunes. not one of the tunes really stands out.
maybe this will be your thing, but for me hinterland is a real dissapointment.
