Cookin' Records is an offshoot of Earth Records, and this is a compilation (first in a series) of their output, overseen and selected by LTJ Bukem. But don't expect drum n bass here, the Cookin' mission has its sights set on an eclectic range of music that encompasses downtempo hip-hop, lounge, funk and jazz, and thats exactly what you get. Every track here is quality, and varies from almost full-on jazz craziness to lush late night atmospherics. Excellently packaged too. Looking forward to more from the Cookin label!
